    Interesting responses, I think for myself, I'm going to investigate this further. I went to class last night and pretended I was a 1920's hollywood starlet. A Theda Bara type. It actually felt good! Normally, I am horribly insecure in my own skin. It's hard for me to feel joyous on stage, when I'm too worried I'm going to make a mistake. I am going to play around with taking on different "roles" in class and see what clicks. We have a competition coming up in a few weeks and I am going to try to imagine what my character would be for the dances we will be performing. Maybe it will help, maybe it won't, I don't think it will hurt to try though.

    Very interesting question. At first, I thought I should focus on my stage name but too much of my real self kept coming out. So I'm a blend of at least two people.

    Hehe, it's really happy to share your feeling on stage. Although I have never performed on the stage before, I completely can imagine your feeling at that time. Just like when I was facing the interniew, I felt so worried at the beginning, well, later, I told myself what if I were that interviewer... Thinking like that, I soon felt peaceful and normal. So, I think you could just tell yourself like "what if I were one of the audiences down the stage...", I believe you must be very proud of yourself. Ahah ...

    Lilith, if it works for you then why not! Especially if it helps with confidence in performing.
