As far as the current teaching situation is concerned, Latin dance has just begun to enter the physical education classroom, and has not yet formed a mature, complete and effective universal teaching model, which is still in a slow development stage. The experimental group teacher combined their own Latin group dance creations in teaching. The control group conducted experiments using normal teaching methods at the same time, and there was no significant difference between the two groups. This article focuses on the created Latin group dance routine as the main learning content, conducting comparative experiments and conducting 12 weeks of group practice. Combined with the actual situation of children and teaching environment, easy to operate, fun, collective, in line with the laws of physical and mental development of children and the application of diversified elements as the basic principle, people have chosen to develop the teaching program from the intensity of practice, practice time, and practice content. The teaching plan is selected from the aspects of exercise intensity, exercise time, and exercise content. In the statistics of the difficulty level of creating routines for Latin group dance, 7.3% felt that it was very difficult. This article can strengthen the overall construction and development of children’s sports dance teaching, create a good teaching environment, and create a good teaching atmosphere for children’s sports dance teaching.
