Abstract: This study assesses and compares the effect of Aerobic dance and Suryanamaskar on three aspects of physical fitness, flexibility, cardiovascular endurance, static and dynamic balance, by using the outcome measures, modified sit and reach test, one leg stance test, step test and star excursion balance test respectively. Two different groups were formulated, 30 participants were taken in suryanamaskar and aerobic dance group, 15 participants in each group, put through four weeks protocol of suryanamaskar and aerobic dance performed on alternative days. Pre and post protocol assessment within both the groups showed significant improvement in all the outcome measures. Post protocol, on comparison between the two groups showed significant improvement in modified sit and reach test (p value= 0.0163), in Aerobic Dance group, whereas rest of the outcome measures did not show any significant improvement between the two groups comparatively. The findings suggest a significant improvement in flexibility, balance and cardiovascular endurance, pre and post protocol within both the groups. On comparing post protocol between the two groups, modified sit and reach test showed significant improvement in Aerobic Dance group suggesting it being more effective in improving flexibility, rest of the outcome measures did not show any significant improvement.
