Emotion is not only a psychological activity of people, but also a more subjective attitude of people to external things. It is usually expressed by people's emotions, anger, sorrow and music, and dance can express people's emotions in a more delicate form of artistic expression. The essence of dance is that people combine various body movements, so that the rhythm, speed and rhythm of each movement have a very good coordination. This requires dancers to have a deeper understanding of the connotation of various movements, just like each movement in sign language has its own meaning, but the combination of various body movements can express a complete emotion. After the different sign language actions are combined, a complete sentence can be expressed. However, the education of dance cannot be just like the teaching of sign language, which can only carry out various kinds of systematic education in theory, because emotion is the soul of dance. Therefore, dance teaching should also pay certain attention to cultivating students' emotional expression and their own beauty. From the professional point of view of dance teaching, the main and most fundamental purpose of dance teaching is to educate students' aesthetic ability. By improving students' aesthetic ability, it can help students to establish their own cognition of beauty. This paper proposed a dance teaching reform plan based on the perspective of ecological aesthetics, which aimed to help dance teachers establish a cognitive method for cultivating students' aesthetic sense. At present, people's cognition of "beauty" is usually harmony, affinity, etc., and these characteristics happen to be consistent with the current ecological research point of view, so the concept of ecological aesthetics was proposed by researchers. Eco-aesthetics rethinks the various aesthetic relationships between man and nature, man and society, and man and culture. At the end of the article, the teaching scheme in this paper was compared with the previous teaching scheme. The results showed that the educational effect of the dance teaching scheme based on the ecological aesthetics perspective has been improved by about 9.7%.
