This paper investigates the application of micro-courses in higher education sports dance teaching. It highlights the advantages of micro-courses in fostering a semi-structured learning environment that enhances student's genuine interest in learning sports dance. Furthermore, the article analyzes the existing pedagogical issues encountered in sports dance teaching at colleges and universities, including limited course content, outdated teaching methods, insufficient educational resources, incomplete assessment practices, and students' weak foundational knowledge. Additionally, it examines the challenges and constraints associated with employing micro-courses in sports dance instruction, such as the ambiguous role of micro-courses in teaching and the level of design and production. To address these concerns, the article proposes specific strategies for effectively applying micro-courses in college physical education dance teaching. These strategies encompass stimulating students' interest in learning, delivering key content effectively, enhancing effectiveness through content comparison, leveraging resources for self-directed learning, and identifying learning problems through micro-course analysis. In conclusion, the article emphasizes the importance of a meticulous implementation of the micro-curriculum model and its integration with traditional teaching methods to establish high-quality sports dance classrooms in college settings.
