Abstract

The article is devoted to the educational potential of folk dance stage adaptation in educational institutions of the People's Republic of China. The purpose of the article is to identify and analyze the educational potential of folk-stage dance in educational institutions of the People's Republic of China. In the article, on the basis of theoretical (study, analysis and generalization of pedagogical literature for comparing and contrasting different views on the selected problem, consideration of theoretical issues in order to determine the basic concepts) and systemic (abstraction and concretization for mentally highlighting a certain property or feature of the subject of research with the aim of more deep study of it and the provision of the subject of concrete expression) research methods the educational potential of folk dance stage adaptation in educational institutions of the People's Republic of China (PRC) was identified and analyzed. The results. Teaching choreographic art in the PRC involves the implementation of students' own potentials in folk art and communication, the formation of needs for positive self-realization. In this regard, the author presents four stages of educating the student’s personality in folk-stage dance classes in educational institutions of the PRC:

  • the formation of schoolchildren value orientation in the process of their awareness of the goals of folk stage dance adaptation (during choreography classes, namely artistic and stage dance, children values are formed reflecting the value attitude to themselves, to the country in which they live and to other nationalities and states, to labor, history and traditions);
  • the assimilation of social experience, knowledge, values of universal and national culture through folk-stage dancing classes (Chinese folk-stage dances are valued all over the world because of the exemplary imitation of national traditions and experience, which makes them identical with authentic, folklore and folk dances);
  • the formation of individual’s views, beliefs, attitudes to the norms, rules of behavior in the process of preparing and performing folk dance stage adaptation (the traditions laid down in the folk stage dances of the PRC presuppose strict adherence to the norms and rules of behavior that form young dancers’ feelings like respect, honor, devotion, which are traditional for Chinese people);
  • the stimulation of students to self-improvement by means of folk-stage dance (through folk-stage dances, the individual’s self-knowledge of both its physical endurance and moral stamina is realized contributing to constant self-improvement).

The authors concluded that folk-stage dance is bright, expressive and attractive event that arouses the interest of people of all ages, and due to its deep philosophical content it is considered to be effective means of educating students.
