The dance world is fast paced, focused but all over the place, driven, difficult, emotionally and physically draining and awesome. But in an environment where so many things are coming and over and twirling and rolling, it can cause anxiety within our dancing bodies.
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, "Anxiety helps us get out of harm's way and prepare for important events, and it warns us when we need to take action." Sound familiar, dancers?
Constantly needing to be alert both physically, mentally and emotionally can create an anxious energy within us which will actually harm our dancing.
