Biomechanics studies in dance can be used as a means to control health, fitness and training. The dance is always performed in the accompaniment of music. Then the combined benefits of the elements of motion and music sound are thought to produce a strengthening effect on the dancer’s physiological condition, including on the body’s immune power. This study aims to examine the possibility of the dancers’ community resistance to Covid-19 exposure, which is obtained from routine dancing activities. This preliminary study is a descriptive study of data on the development of Covid-19 exposure cases in several districts in the Malang Regency during April 2020. The selected area is sub-districts adjacent to the airport and toll road access. The analysis is based on the alleged correlation between dancing culture in the community and the level of case development for the potential risk of local transmission of the same virus. Results show that a temporary conclusion can be drawn that the 3 subject areas known as active areas of traditional art in the form of folk dance, show a trend towards the development of Covid- 19 which is slow. This might be related to better body fitness, which is formed from traditional dance routines. However, it is still necessary to wait for the results of the mass PCR test to be carried out by the Regional Government so that the exposure status of the ODP, PDP and ODR categories can be ascertained. It also still needs to be ascertained by a history of dancing activity from patients in all of these categories to ensure testing the hypothesis of this study.
