The study assessed the effects of aerobic Fuji dance on body composition cardiovascular variables of a Pasuma Fuji Music dancer at Iworo-Bus Stop, Lagos State. The participant was a record seller, that used Fuji dance to patronize his business by dancing to Pasuma Fuji music aged 39years. Purposive sampling technique was used in selecting the participant. Informed consent form was given to the participant, signed and returned to the researcher. The participant danced nothing less than, three times in a week. Data were collected on the body composition and cardiovascular variables of the participant The data collected was analyzed with descriptive statistics of mean, standard deviation and inferential statistics oft-test Five hypotheses were formulated, out of which the following three hypotheses were significant: body mass index (t-12.85, p<0.05), percent body fat (t=14.03, p<0.05) and diastolic blood pressure (t-13.01, p<0.05), while two were insignificant: systolic blood pressure (t=12.Q5, p>0.05) and heart rate (t-2.26, p>0.05). It was observed that BM1 of the participants fell in the range considered to be normal (22.5kg/m2), percent body fat fell in the range considered to be good (14.1-19.0), diastolic blood pressure fell in the range considered to be normal (<80), Although the systolic blood pressure and heart rate were insignificant, systolic blood pressure was in the rating of pre-hypertension (128) and heart rate fell in the rating of excellent (<_ 59) both being considered normal. Based on the findings of this study, it is concluded that aerobic Fuji dance have positive effect on the body composition and cardiovascular variables of the participant It is recommended that the aerobic Fuji dancer should continue with the aerobic Fuji dance three times in a week in order to maintain good quality of life.
