There’s Nothing Wrong with a Bit of Fear
We’ve all had stage fright at some time. Some of the very best performers have it all the time, but learn to cope with it or even use it to their advantage. Fear of going on stage is extremely common, most professional performers agree that not only does stage fright never completely go away, a certain amount of it can help give your performance an
edge. A rush of adrenalin is what allows animals to overcome very serious situations, whether it’s running away faster, gathering more strength to fight or more significantly making your brain focus on one thing. Also, the odd bead of sweat on your brow may give you a bit more charisma.
