THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BODY IMAGE DIMENSIONS AND TRAINING EXTENSITY AMONG SPORT DANCERS

Vedrana Grčić, Alen Miletić, Noemi Zovko

Body image and self perception are important issues among sport dancers that effect planning of dance training. Training extensity is one of the well known factors that influences success in dance competitions. The research was conducted in order to establish the relations between factors of Multidimensional Body Image Questionnaire and training extensity. The experiment comprised of 173 female sport dancers and 200 male sport dancers from 53 countries and six continents. The sample of variables included a body image estimate with latent dimensions obtained in previous research by Miletic (2012): attractiveness, joy, body efficacy, flexibility, energy, strength, bad health/weakness and masculinity/femininity; and variables for estimation of training extensity. According to the results obtained by discriminate analysis calculated separately by gender, the interrelations of factors of Multidimensional Body Image Questionnaire were defined among subsamples defined by training extensity with domination of flexibility and energy factors.
