<p>  There are few studies on spectator sports that analyze people’s conversations or expressions from watching games. The aim of this study was to measure sports appreciation ability and to investigate the different types of programs that support spectators(henceforth, “participants” in the context of programs). The types of programs that were assumed to exist are “the one-sided explanation-type program,” “the communication-type program,” and “the workshop-type program.” In this study, the workshop-type(WS)and the communication-type(COM)programs were investigated in the context of university ballet classes. These programs were different in regard to the degree of verbal expression of sports appreciation that participants shared during each program.</p><p>  As a result, about half of the participants in both groups had had a previous ballet experience. On the other hand, over 10% of the participants replied that they were still taking ballet lessons. More than 30% of the participants had never taken ballet classes.</p><p>  Sports appreciation ability was measured in two ways: by having the participants evaluate it themselves, and by having others evaluate it. In the analysis of own evaluation, it became clear that three sports appreciation abilities(the ability to formalize, the ability to be objective, and the ability to concentrate on information), which seem important for expression, were higher in the COM program participants than the corresponding abilities in the WS program participants.</p><p>  The program involving a low degree of expression(the WS program)elicited lower expressions than the program involving a high degree of expression(the COM program). It was suggested that expressions are related to sports appreciation ability.</p><p>  This investigation did not clearly reveal whether the WS program increased sports appreciation ability. However, the participants in the WS program had a significantly higher degree of satisfaction with the program.</p>
