DanceMind:Dear Janie, Nerves ...


What if you woke up tomorrow morning and THAT feeling is gone - Poof!

No nerves. No upset. Dream come true? Maybe not.

Look at what happens here - You dance beautifully until 'he' comes in. Your power is reduced/drained because you started 'thinking' about his impression, how you may not like him, how you were not cast .... Mind rant drains your power. It activates frontal lobes of the brain (used for thinking, inner dialogue) and your body can't dance as well. The brain communicates to muscles and CNS.

Training is not the same story, it can feel a little awkward - is that the case here ? As you mentioned? You were learning? Even so, splitting your mind on what HE OBSERVES (which you really do not know what he is experiencing) takes you concentration away.

Janie, you realize from many past posts that you cannot control who is in the room, who is allowed to watch. This can be unnerving, which can be a good thing.

I am going to ask YOU TO TELL ME how THAT nerve feeling can be a good thing.
