This is an excerpt from the content:

The principal aim of this study was to investigate whether a program of dance, presented in a cooperative learning framework, would be instrumental in improving the self-concept of a sample of Grades 3, 4 and 5 primary school children.

Both quantitative and observational qualitative data were utilised in the analysis of the study outcome. (p. 8)
