This study was to find the benefit of aerobic dance, to which many 30-40 years old women have interest for improving their physical fitness to increase working productivity. This study used pretest and posttest design involving 30 individuals as samples. The samples were divided into two groups, one conducting low impact aerobic dance and the other moderate impact aerobic dance. The aerobic dance program was carried out three times a week for 8 weeks. Pretest data were taken prior to the program, and posttest data were also obtained after the program ended. It was found that the result of multivariate test to fitness index revealed no significant difference (p=0.120) in low impact group and siginificant difference (p=0.002) in moderate impact group. The result of discriminant test showed significant difference (p=0.001). In low impact group, the absence of change in fitness index might be because the exercise intensity did not support physiological changes or because the length of exercise was less prolonged as it was a lower intensity. Moderate impact group showed that the aerobic dance could improve fitness index. This suggested that it can be used to improve the function of physical system. It can be assumed that moderate impact aerobic dance program for 8 weeks is a physical exercise with predominant aerobic energy system, so that physical systems become more efficient. Although the effect of moderate and low impact aerobic dance on fitness index have been disclosed, further studies are still required to extend its theoretical explanation and application.
