Purpose: This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of aerobic dance on physical functionnings of women with mastectomy. The study was single group pre- & post-test time series design. The aerobic dance program was performed three times a week for eight weeks, 45${\sim}$60 minutes per session. Method: The research variables used in the study were the period(seconds) of exercise that was taken for target heart rate, activity systolic pressure, range of motion of shoulder joint in affected side, and flexibility for physical functionnings. The data were analyzed with repeated measure ANOVA and Bonferroni multiple comparisons. Results: Over the period of aerobic dance, the degree of all the research variables were changed significantly, and also differed significantly every 2 to 4 weeks. The period(seconds) of exercise that was taken for target heart rate (p <.000), systolic pressure in exercise(p =.019), range of motions of shoulder joint on the affected side(flexion, abduction, over-adduction, over-extension, external & internal rotation), and flexibility(sit & reach, back & reach) (p= .003; p=.001; p(.001; p<.001; p= .014; p<.001; p=.036; p<.001) were differed significantly respectively. Conclusion: The results suggest that the aerobic dance program for women with mastectomy can improve and recover cardiopulmonary endurance and ROM of shoulder joint and that the period of exercise had to be performed over six to eight weeks and three times a week at least.
