Abstract: 

The purpose of this study was to investigate differentiation of Greek traditional dances teacher’s
motivation due to their demographic characteristics. The survey involved 150 teachers of Greek traditional dances (men 46% and women 54%) employed in cultural associations, schools and gyms. To assess motivation scale was used Blais and colleagues (1993) instrument, after modification in Greek language by Christodoulides (2004). The validity and reliability of the scale were tested successfully. The survey results showed that dance teachers succeeded high values of work motivation. Statistically significant differences were noted between teachers of different sex in subscale intrinsic motivation for knowledge (p <.05) and in subscale internal pressure (p <.05). Even statistically significant differences were noted between teachers with different levels of teaching experience in the identified regulation subscale (p <.05) and in the external regulation subscale (p <.05). More generally, present findings supported that the motivations of Greek dance teachers influenced to some extent by their demographic characteristics.
