Background: Lack of physical activity in children leads to decrease in the child's dynamic balance which results in a high risk of falling. Balance is a key element to achieving adequate movement ability. This study aimed to determine the effect of Single-Task exercises on children's balance. Methods: The design of this study was the Pre Experimental - pre and post-test one-group design. Respondents were 14 children aged 7-12 years who were selected by purposive sampling technique in Pulo Gebang Bekasi. The independent variable was a Single-Task Exercise while the dependent variable was dynamic balance as measured by the Balance Y Test. Data analysis included univariate analysis and bivariate analysis using the Paired sample T-Test. Results: After the intervention, there was a change in the average balance from 45.12% to 83.27%, or an increase of 84.44% with a p-value of 0.000 (p ≤ 0.005). Conclusion: Single-Task Exercise had a significant effect on the dynamic balance of children aged 7 -12 years therefore can be a novel approach as a routine school exercise to improving children's dynamic balance
