    Sing Your Heart Out.

    I love to sing. But I do have a nasty case of stage fright when singing by myself. If I am even heard, I quiet my voice so that people cant hear me. I wish I could get over it, because in my opinion, im not half bad. I want to be able to sing in front of people without...

    I only have stage fright

    when I play clarinet. The stage is home to me as an actor so that doesn't bother me. I only freak out and start shaking when I play clarinet. I sit second chair so I'm not sure why I am this way. Oh well, no big deal.

    Don't Want To Mess Up

    I've been on the stage since I was little. I took dance classes for at least 8 years(starting sometime in elementary), so getting up on stage is something you would think I'd be used to. But that isn't the case. At least in dance, I'm not the only one that people are looking at...

    Stepping up there. Turning around

    and finding dozens of eyes staring back at you. Look, observing, possibly judging. Who knows what thoughts are running through their minds. You stand there, ready to get it over with. You're sweating. Butterflies in your stomach. Shaking. There's a stutter in your voice. You...
