Although dance in all its forms is regarded as a highly desirable arts subject in the primary school curriculum, in many schools in South Australia there is little opportunity for children to experience any form of dance education at all. The researchers are ardent practitioners of dance and the arts, are in a position to influence teacher preparation and in-service, and considered it appropriate to tackle a focused case study to ascertain some of the immediate and longer term issues facing teachers and students in a school environment. We wondered why dance teaching was quite thinly scattered across primary schools, who taught dance, what were the reasons given by teachers for not teaching dance, and what did students think about their dance experiences.
