Abstract

The aim of the article is to substantiate the role of folk dance in the process of formation of the creative potential of a student-choreographer. Methods of generalization and comparative analysis were used in the research process. The article identifies three pedagogical conditions for formation the creative potential of students-choreographers by means of folk dance. It is pointed out that promising planning for professional growth plays an important role in formation the choreographers’ creative potential. The expediency of involving students in creative experiments, which include the creation of their own choreographic sketches in the middle of the hall, as well as training exercises near the machine, is substantiated. It is noted that students' sketch work in folk-dance classes is characterized by the study of choreographic sketches on the basis of dance vocabulary. The essence of separate types of students-choreographers’ independent work is revealed. The authors point out that the development of creative thinking, creative imagination and fantasy requires the application of a set of creative tasks based on improvisation. Attention is drawn to the need for the use of interactive and information technologies. Classes with the introduction of interactive and modern information technologies maximally stimulate student-choreographer’s cognitive independence and creative activity.
