Having confidence as a dancer is the most important feeling you can ever have. Although this business is often critical, you can learn how to not let it affect you over time.
The first steps you need to take are:
- Acknowledge your abilities
- Be proud of yourself for what you can do
Often times we are way too critical of our own dancing and always end up having something negative to say. Personally, I have always struggled with my confidence. Although I still have a lot of work to do, I’ve definitely improved! Once I realized how looking on the positive side could alter my perspective, I let go of all the criticism. Little by little, I stopped performing to please others and started performing to make myself truly happy. Ultimately, that’s the key to having confidence. Forget about comparing yourself to others and just BE YOU! I challenge you all to try it!
