An Aspiring Artist’s Guide To Performing Arts

098 Preforming artsArt has played a diverse range of roles throughout the history. It has been a mode of creative expression, a conveyance of emotion and also a representation of history, tradition and culture. There are different types of arts and one most popular form of it is performing arts.

In comparison to visual arts where artists use various materials like paint or canvass to create images or objects in the form of photography, painting and sculpture, artists engaging in performing arts use their body, vocals and facial expressions to form and convey creative, artistic fabrications. Most of these human activities are done in front of a live audience, however, there are also particular forms which are performed and shown in the television and other mediums. If you are one of those who want to engage in arts, and is still undecided on the kind of performing arts you want to immerse yourself into, here is a guide on the types of this art to choose from.

 

Music

The word “music” originated from the Greek term “mousike” which means art of the muses. Common music elements include rhythm, pitch, dynamics and timbre. But its essence, definition and performance differ from one place to another as it represents a certain culture or tradition.

In addition to this, music can also be divided into different genres or subgenres. The most popular ones in the contemporary times are RnB, Hip Hop and Pop. This form of performing arts is not static. As time passes by, music also evolves and transforms into something new.

 

Circus acts

A circus is a group of stunt-oriented individuals who specialize on object manipulation, magic and acrobatic performances. Engendered from the Latin word “circus”, this type of performing arts is commonly conducted in front of a live audience. Activities involved in circuses necessitate intensive training and skills. Examples of these are gymnastics, aerial acts and even, magic. Special effects and elaborate costumes and props were specifically made to create an illusion of a perceived magical reality to the audience. There are also extreme stunts performed set to shock the audience like sword swallowing, human cannonball and fire eating.

 

Dance

This involves a rhythmic movement of the body commonly accompanied with music. Just like other forms of art, dance also varies from culture to culture. It is used as a means to social interaction, entertainment, emotional expression, exercise and conveyance of ideas or concepts. Functions of dances may range from ceremonial and cultural to competitive or erotic ones.

No matter what kind of performing arts you choose, it is very important that you know where your passion lies. Finding enjoyment in it will motivate you to develop your craft in performing arts.

Performing Arts: Benefits Of Being Involved

067 Preforming artsPerforming arts can provide a wide array of benefits. This is a specific field in which you can be part of. Not all schools accommodate performing arts. It is because other schools have less or no facilities to cater to students who really excel in areas like dance, singing, speech, magic, drama, etc. They still need to hire good teachers who can really educate learners and harness their full potentials. Some schools are not after this optional program instead they focus more on academics. They simply train kids to master concepts in subjects like Mathematics, English, Science, and Geography. They are more on formative tests, graded recitations, projects, researches, and daily attendance. The school is an important part of the society. It is the place to learn how to be productive. But, schools operate under different curriculums. Others balance both academic and co-curricular works but others do not. If you like to be part of the performing groups, what would you like to concentrate on? Are you willing to be trained in ballet? How about singing and dramatizing? Choose what you love the most.

Active participation in performing arts offers good benefits. Aside from real pleasure, studies revealed that students enhance their performances in their academic subjects like in reading, writing and cognitive development. Different areas involved are not purely physical. Remember that when you dance, you master your own steps. When you sing, you get more fluent in speaking, when you write, you express yourself freely in more amazing way. When you act, you become more confident and smart in memorizing. Students don’t just dance, sing and act for nothing. They are getting the benefits. They become smarter.

Discipline is best learned through this special program. When you are doing the things you love the most, you become more confident. Discipline is developed within you that no matter what, you’ll do your best. Famous ballet dancers and singers are once dreamers. For sure, they are once shy to show up. They are just like you. But, look at them now. They are performing in front of many, entertain audiences, inspire other dreamers, and enjoying their lives. With constant hard work and good training, they become successful. If the academic world has a curriculum to follow, the performing arts also have. But, the curriculum is a little different from the usual. There are really learning targets that emphasize the development of specific skills. The curriculum includes tours, workshops, observations, and individualized programs. Parents also need to help their kids when it comes to time management. Those who have supportive parents perform lightly and with confidence because they know their loved ones are watching. They draw strength from their families who are their avid supporters.

Performing arts involve many genres. Circus acts and theatre belong to this program. Artists are referred to as performers and they are addressed as actors, magicians, dancers, dramatists, singers, comedians, musicians, etc. performers don’t just perform without for getting ready. They practice in a regular basis, prepare their costumes and have some make-up. For a dancer, he needs to be a total package. He needs not just to dance alone. He needs to look pleasing as well. Performers’ main objective is to entertain audience. If they succeeded in impressing the audience, that would mean they’re effective as performers.

If given the chance, would you like to become a performer? Why not? There are schools specializing in this field. Now, at a very young age, kids are trained already. They can already have their coaches or trainers with them. Different countries have different sets of professional performers. Their performances are well-applauded.
