As any dancer knows, performance anxiety is a pretty common thing. Dancing in front of all those people can be scary! Thoughts have a way to slip into your mind before a show, like, what if you were to trip? Or what if you forget your routine?
We've all been there...lying in your bed the night before a competition thinking about all the things that could go wrong the following day.
