Dance can have great influences on children's life as it includes the physical activities as well as a medium for self-expression. However, problems usually can be found in dance education at elementary level, including the lack of interest of the student and the perception that dancing is difficult and not comfortable. This paper reports a study on inducing creative approach to increase student's expressive movement capability, in the form of storytelling.
