What is it?

Performance art is a performance presented to an audience within a fine art context, traditionally interdisciplinary. Performance may be either scripted or unscripted, random or carefully orchestrated: spontaneous or otherwise carefully planned with or without audience participation. The performance can be live or via media; the performer can be present or absent. It can be any situation that involves four basic elements: time, space, the performer’s body, or presence in a medium, and a relationship between performer and audience. Performance art can happen anywhere, in any type of venue or setting and for any length of time. The actions of an individual or a group at a particular place and in a particular time constitute the work. Every dance technique requires intense control, which is provided by core strength. Consider the incredible technique of Irish dance. These dancers must hold the spine firm throughout all of their combinations. Their trunk placement must be intensely secure so they can move their legs and feet with incredible speed. In Irish or any other form of dance, the technique is demanding and injury can keep you from training and competing. Include core conditioning into your dance training to improve body placement and reduce risk of injury.
