Introduction: The development of technology today is moving very rapidly. Various kinds of activities are associated with technology. In response to this, it is necessary to adopt technology by everyone so that adults and children are not left behind. It is important to introduce technology adaptation to students in order to face the increasingly rapid technological developments in the future. Therefore, one of the efforts to apply technology in the field of art is through the introduction of coding learning. The purpose of this research is to implement learning coding to train the artistic creativity of Elementary School Teacher Education Students at FKIP UNUSA.  

Methods: This research method uses a qualitative research method. The subjects of this study were PGSD 4th semester students as many as 90 people. The research was carried out using the website with dance party material.  

Results: The results showed that the implementation of coding learning can train students' creativity in making simple dance moves that are unique and interesting. In addition, students can also be creative with the background of the stage setting and the floor pattern of the dancers. As many as 80 students are able to make dance choreography by using the website for dance party materials.  

Conclusion: It can be concluded that the artistic creativity of students increases through learning coding.
