    "Dear Edie,
    Just wondering how to get rid of the anxiety???? I just started taking lessons and I know I could be a lot better than what I am showing my instructor but I am so self conscious and stiff and I don't know how to relax. When I am home dancing I am moving pretty good but I feel like a big awkward nerd when I am dancing with my instructor. Please help me learn some tips to relax a bit....
    Sincerely, - "Self Conscious"


    Dear "Self Conscious"

    I can totally relate to what you wrote. When I started I was that way. Then one day, like Magic, it just "broke". I was going through some difficult "relationship issues" and I got so pissed one night I just SLAMMED dancing. I could care LESS what people thought of me because I hated them, my boyfriend, and life in general. I was at that club DANCING UP A STORM full of RAGE AND HATE - it was a sight to see. I was "determined" to make every man drool with awe from how well I followed them, and how well I spun, and how beautiful my styling was, and then leave them wanting to dance with me more, and more... and then I would say, "See ya!" and move on my NEXT MALE VICTIM.

    It was bad.

    After the night was over, I realized I was no longer self-conscious nor insecure. It was ALL IN MY HEAD. When I started putting the focus and blame on HIM, my "self" left, and all I could think of was complete revenge with another man. I was so exhausted from dancing non-stop for five hours straight that there was no time for revenge. I got IT ALL OUT on that dance floor that very night. It was ... awesome.

    Stop looking, and focusing so much on "you", "yourself", and "your self-conscious".

    Take note and count how many "I" 's are in your paragraph above.

    That's your problem.

    Solution: Impress the heck out of THEM, and take your eyes and focus off of YOU. Show them/him/they/her/audience just how important THEY ARE. Not you.



    Happy Dancing!

    • Four Ways to Beat Nervousness Before a Show
      staffster

      By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!
      ’It’s NERVOUS TIME Ladies and Gentlemen!’ the producer bellowed loudly as he arrogantly strolled through the groups of performers backstage.

      Performers are scattered throughout the room, stretching limbs, fixing shoes, and tightening straps. Some are jumping up and down, breathing hard and rehearsing footwork and moves. All of them look FANTASTIC on the outside, but only a veteran performer truly understands what they are going through on the inside.

      Performing is NOT easy. I don’t care how seasoned you are, you WILL get nervous before a show. It’s just simply part of the game. Here are 4 simple ‘Tricks of the Trade’ that have ALWAYS worked for me. I’ve included a summary of some of these three items below so you can print them out on a small sheet of paper to take with you ...
