Are you preparing for your next dance competition? Even though you may practice and rehearse for months on end, it's hard to prepare for what you will actually feel like once you're onstage. Sometimes nerves can get the best of a dancer, making it difficult for the judges to see your flawless pirouettes or gorgeous extensions.

Some dancers tend to freeze when they catch a glimpse of the judges facing them. If you are threatened by the judge panel, try your best to look them in the eye with confidence. Avoiding eye contact is never encouraged. Try to smile and convince the judges that you are having the time of your life.
