dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to determine, the types and the frequency of injuries in low-impact aerobic dance. Two hundred and four questionnaires were collected from randomly selected low-impact aerobic dance participants. The following results were obtained: Eleven percent of the participants reported an injury that was serious enough to cause them to stop their low-impact dance activity for at least one day or more. Out of 204 participants, 4.9 percent of the males and 6.9 percent of the females were injured.Hours per week positively associated with injuries, p > 0.01, with a modified t-statistic. Weight use with low-impact aerobic dance injuries was also positively associated with injuries, p > 0.01, with a Chi-square statistic. However, warm-up and cool down periods were not associated with low-impact aerobic dance injuries, p > 0.01 with a Chi-square statistic.
