What to Do Before You Walk on Stage For Talent: A Dancer's Guide

04, March 2014

You're standing back stage. You can't believe all of your preparation has come down to this. You're nervous, sweating, but still excited. Then you realize, you feel like you're forgetting something? And it hits you . . . you're forgetting your on stage prep! Well here is the dancer's guide to what you should do before you step on stage.

Shake out the nerves

  Shake Off the Jitters I know it's scary. You're very nervous, and you worry (shocker honey, you're a female!). But the best thing to do is shake it off, wipe it off and throw it away. Shake your jitters through your body, wipe them off your arms, body, and legs, then throw them away. FAR AWAY. If you do this first, you are beginning to feel 100% better.

Probably one of the most important things to do before talent

Stretch. Everything. An injury needs to be the least of your worries, especially while you are performing. If you remember anything, remember to stretch your whole body so you can prevent an injury from happening. Do some splits, back bends, toe touches, etc., whatever you need to stretch it all. And you must stretch your joints (ankles, hips, wrists, etc) so nothing gets pulled or torn.

Tighten Your Core With dancers, it's always good to have your core tight. So before you step on stage, try doing a few crunches or sit ups. Don't do so many to make you tired, but do enough to make sure you are tight in your core and ready to take on anything. This also is a plus and give your abs that extra pop you want to show off in your two piece talent costume.

Breathe Take this is the time to really take it all in and breathe. You're about to perform a dance you have been practicing for so long and so hard. You just need to realize the only thing you can do is be the best YOU there is. If you give it your all and push yourself, there is no reason why you shouldn't kill your talent. Take this moment to breathe, give yourself the typical little pep talk, and be a little cocky in your head. Tell yourself that you are the best, you will be the best, and no one can take that from you. Only YOU can keep yourself from being the best.
