    Anonymous said: I am a u15 irish dancer and this past year has not been good for me. I didn't recall at Nationals which, as upsetting as it is, is making me push myself for recalling at the next Oireachtas. Is there any advice you could give me to help me? I'll take anything, excercises, tips, I appreciate everything. One thing I have been struggling with at every competition, even local feises, is my nerves. I get worked up over dancing in front of a crowd and I want to be able to have confidence. Thank you!

    I’ve totally been in the same boat as you. Last nationals I didn’t recall and was very upset and frankly I wanted to quit because it was like what’s the point anymore you know? I sorta got out of that slump and worked harder to amp up for the Oireachtas and ended up world qualifying. It is soo so worth it to keep fighting through because in the end (even if you fail a few times) hard work truly does pay off. I personally have had troubles with ankle strength for example and looked up exercises for strengthening and I would recommend sitting down with your teacher to discuss your main issues and finding simple exercises online to improve your performance. As for nerves, I’ve had really bad problems with that as well and something that helps me is having the mentality that whatever happens, happens. Which is completely true and you can never know what the judges will think about your dancing on any given day. Anyways, I hope this helped and I’m sorry this is late! :)
