The philosophy of Orff music education has been widely applied in dance teaching. Skillful mastery of the philosophy of Orff music education and its implementation in the classrooms can stimulate students' interest, improve their dance skills and realize the teaching goals. In dance teaching, teachers combine advanced methods with the idea of Orff music, which can make the past dance classrooms become more energetic, and the students' participation in class will be more active. This paper aims to improve the quality of the dance teaching by exploring the philosophy, importance, and uniqueness of Orff music education and providing suggestions that will help implement these ideas more effectively in the dance classrooms.
