Recital Season: tips for students

Here are some tips on how to perform in your best most stress free recital so far.

Make a list of things you may need to gather before the show such as bobby pins, first aid kit, extra tights, sowing kit, stage make up and so on.  You may feel more relaxed knowing all your things are ready to go.

Be sure to have an energizing breakfast, and bring mess free snacks with you.  You may want to avoid chocolate, coffee, or anything with caffeine to keep your jitters down.   Don’t forget a water bottle or 2!

Right before the show

Best of luck, don’t forget to have fun 🙂
