ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to identify the tension adjustment strategies that were used by 53 Korean dancers working in national or municipal dance companies while they were experiencing peak performance. To do this, an open questionnaire was conducted for the inductive content analysis to derive the following results. First, the tension control strategies were behavioral tension control (breath control, body relaxation, preparation check) and cognitive tension control (using composure and psychological techniques). In particular, behavioral tension control was used most effectively through breath control, and cognitive tension control was used most effectively through composure. Second, the concentration strategies during the tension were concentration on the dance works (work concentration, image) and mind control concentration (cognitive restructuring, body condition control). In particular, the focus on dance work was most effectively done through work concentration, and the mind control concentration was most effectively accomplished through cognitive reconstruction.
