Semesta Tari community exist with a focus on children’s creativity aged 2-14 years in the process and performance of the children’s dance with environmental stimuli. Environment here is a site with a specific social and cultural context. The elaboration of dialectical interactions between performers and their arenas is seen from a site-specific performance framework. Their existence based on the development of discourse nowadays, what has been built is a high barrier of separation between the pattern of art institutions and art education institutions with all the construction agreements. Research on the praxis of Semesta Tari is looking at the self-conscientization, the attachment of art studies to bodily experiences, interaction and spatial intervention as well as independent art education and presentation. This research will explore the  fragment of site-specific performance principles which are used by Semesta Tari as a method approach. The formulation will be discussed in Critical Pedagogy by Paulo Freire. Participatory action research is used as a methodology because the researcher becomes part of the material object. The findings of this research, conscientization on the  site-specific performance praxis of Semesta Tari is to answer what individuals consciously ask about the constructtion of agreements, through or with art.
