Is There Cure for Stage Fright, Butterflies, Fear?

Even professional performers get the “butterflies” and some get so scared they throw up before every performance. But they have learned to harness the fear and anxiety. How each of them does that is different. You have to find what works for you so that once you get on the stage you can give your best performance.

I’ve worked with people who used to be so sick they would throw up before they gave a performance, presentation or go on stage. Now they can channel that adrenaline (fight, flight or freeze response) and focus on the “performance emotion” so they go into a highly charged but focused state.

Here are some tips to help you harness and channel your stage fright / anxiety so that it works for you and not against you:

  • Let yourself admit and be aware that you have a feeling of danger that brings out the fear / anxiety response. Let it wash over you and then pause to let the fear subside.
  • Use concentrated emotional focus on what you are performing.
  • Choose to channel it into energy.
  • Find your tension release exercise.

I listen to music that feeds that energy. Some people do a series of exercises and some do calming routines. It varies person to person. There are a variety of ways to handle stage fright. You have to try several alternatives until you find one that works for you. This is only one of many performance situations that will be addressed at the Song and Stage Bootcamp this year.
