chelle8422 Posted January 31, 2015 Share Posted January 31, 2015 I am on an amateur salsa dance performance team with 8 other people. We have been rehearsing since August and will be performing throughout February and into March. We recently got accepted to perform at the Chicago Salsa Congress in a couple of weeks which is exciting and very nerve-racking. I also have the added pressure of being chosen team captain and dealing with all the responsibilities that it involves. I have performed on a limited basis before. (I am the only one on the team that has, so this is everyone else's first time.) I love it but I get so nervous to the point where I start to shake. I need something that will help to calm my nerves but keep me sharp and focused ( and hopefully rub off on everyone else). I was originally thinking of using Leather which is my go-to for getting things done, but I'm worried that it will amplify my nerves. When I'm anxious, I usually grab Balm Bomb, but that makes me drowsy and I definitely don't want that. Also, my dance partner and I have been struggling with the ending. It is a complicated trick move which we have done successfully many times before. But lately it seems to be falling apart and we are loosing the connection we need to execute the move correctly. We both know what the issues are but it seems to be more of a mental hurdle to get over. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
