The purpose of this study is investigating the effect of six weeks exercise (12 sessions) of Tanavarz (rope dancing) national plan on sensational – motional abilities of static- dynamic balance of fourth class’s students of Piranshahr’s primary schools. Method of research is experimental – field that students of two different classes from two schools, one group as experimental (61 persons) and another as control group (64 persons) were selected randomly. For measuring strek test, for dynamic balance walking on balance wood and for agility measuring 9×4 running have been used. At first, pretest variables of both groups were measured. Then, experimental group practiced 12 sessions of approval education ministry’s exercises individually and gregariously that each session was 45 minutes. Comparison between results of pretest and protest of both groups, i.e. experimental and control, showed that attendance in Tanavarz plan caused that trained group improved their agility and balance abilities in comparison to control group. This difference of confidence limit p ≥ 0.05 and p ≥ 0.01 is meaningful. In addition, individual comparison of static and dynamic balance and also agility of experimental and control groups showed that these variables in experimental group at p ≥ 0.05 level had meaningful influence. Moreover, there was a meaningful relation between protest scores of agility and static balance and also agility and dynamic balance of experimental group. Tanavarz national plan leading to improvement of sensational – motional growth, therefore this plan could be used in schools for this purpose.
