I was browsing around youtube and stumbled against this video, and I truly believe the piano player is EXTREMELY foolish for all those unnecessary movements during this performance, however, I have no complains about the playing. How would you evaluate this performance? Do you guys think it compromises our technique as pianists?

How would I evaluate this performance?

I wouldn't and thank God I don't have to.

"And if we look at the works of J.S. Bach — a benevolent god to which all musicians should offer a prayer to defend themselves against mediocrity... -Debussy

Of all the things that prevent that video from looking and sounding professional, the keyboardist's movements don't even make the top 50.

That being said, it looks like a talent show, and having been to several school talent shows, it is refreshing to see people actually making the music themselves instead of standing around doing bad karaoke.
"If we continually try to force a child to do what he is afraid to do, he will become more timid, and will use his brains and energy, not to explore the unknown, but to find ways to avoid the pressures we put on him." (John Holt)
