    I guess I don't call them anything. How curious. . I think we have hijacked this thread. Maybe the moderator ought to send us to costumes?

    Well as mod I'm not going to send you to costumes because to me, the slight diversion to body stockings and how the the world to answer the invitably bad timed call of nature is soooo part of a performance. Can you tell I've had some experience in that area? LOL!!!
    A suggestion to anyone with handy dandy sewing skills and an unco-operative bladder, take your regular body stockings, slice the croch slightly to the front side, finish the edges with binding tape then sew on hooks or heavy duty snaps (think similar to a baby's romper). Makes those last minute bathroom runs before a show in full costume a lot easier.
    Now back to the thread....... *grin*

    Oh, Viv, you mean I can't steal this wonderful highjack for costumes? Rats.
    Good idea for making an escape hatch in one's bodystocking!

    tell what is even worse...it's when you have on body stocking, tribal bloomers and 2 skirts topped by a belt and fringe...try getting out of that in a hurry.

    Hi, back to 'How you feel just before entering the stage?'

    I go through different phases, I am tired, don't feel up to it, then I feel totally not interested in performing (the 'anti' mood), then I get sometimes nervous, usually very quiet and then I just can't wait to get out there. This is true for stage performances and some weddings, but for restaurant performances i am not nervous at all and just get out there.

    Once I am out there I let go and enjoy the contact with the audience, giving to them and having fun.


    Yes, visualizing is very powerful, and I am using that already days before I have a big performance. I also do some heel jumps (that is right before I go out there) with quick deep exhalations to ground me. I am also making determinations or intentions before any performance, such as 'I give intent to dance with joy and touch people's hearts'.

    Happy dancing

    OMG thats me too!


    The last thing I say to my troupe is "have fun, if we cock it up, smile, its not the end of the world!"


    Oh I always get very talkative before a performance and I always want a Pee!

    I am fine until the music plays. Once I hear the music I get the whole butterfly in the stomach thing
