Specialised definition of the noun aesthetics
Glossary of sports
the theory of sensory perception, experience, opinion, and knowledge, in colloquial language also a term for "stylish beauty". With this meaning aesthetics represent an important element in dance, callisthenics, and artistic sports such as gymnastics and figure skating. Within the framework of education in these types of sport, aesthetic aspects regarding the ability to express oneself, rhythm, naturalness, and comprehensiveness of a movement play an essential role. The production of an aesthetic movement is based on the ability to structure and vary movements and to express them precisely. Aesthetics represent a norm in many artistic sports, i.e. the movement form has to be consistent and characterized by optimal coordination of its individual parts; it is, therefore, most often an independent criterion for performance assessment. (Herbert Haag & Gerald Haag. 2003. Dictionary. Sport, Physical Education, Sport Science. Kiel, Institut für Sport und Sportwissenschaften)
