    i used to, but i dont anymore! of course i get nervous immediatly before i go on but once im on stage im wonderful! i love it!
    for dance recital, everyone gets nervous but i have so much fun because no one is judging me and its just a time to have fun dance and entertain ppl!!
    i still remember my first dance recital, its like a blur because i was four or five! but i remember yellow feathers(my costume, we were chickens!LMAO!) and i remember going up the steps to the stage and i was freaking out, i remember i had a feeling that i had to vomit i was so nervous! but i went on stage and i watched the tape a couple of years ago! :LOL: oh boy i had no clue what i was doing but i was smiling!hehehe!
    now i have a clue so i have no need to be nervous...hopefully!

    I get nervous when I'm speaking or in a small group. In front of a large amount of people I'm good, but a small group... no. I like it when I'm on stage and you can't see the audience. Then I don't worry. :shrug:

    Oh yeah! Always! When I was on stage doing a school solo for our concert, I totally stopped and came in late. That was like 2 years ago. It's not so bad now though.....

    I don't act, but I never get nervous before playing my flute (solo, small ensemble, or band) onstage.

    I have the worst stage fright with public speaking..even just in front of my class...I start to feel more and more like I'm gonna either stop breathing or throw up...nice huh? But I'm in ballet too and I never get really nervous before recitals for some reason. I remember my very first one when I was four and I wasn't the least bit nervous, but when your young it doesn't really matter much I guess, ya know? Everyone thinks your cute anyways! Newho, I only get nervous when I give speeches and stuff.

    I don't get stage fright but I do get nervous. But as soon as I'm on the stage, I'm fine. It's just those few nerve-wracking moments right before. Those are the worst. But as soon as I'm on the stage, it all disappears, and I can't help but smile because I'm loving it all!

    I don't get stage fright or get nervous or anything! But I am like a born performer and I love being in front of people, so it's normally easy for me!

    yeah, but the way i think about it is, it's more embarassing to get frozen on stage than to just mess up a line. ^_^

    I get major stage fright about 30 seconds before I go on, but I've started to dance I stop freaking out.

    Not really, I just get the 1st 10 seconds of "Oh my god, the whole worlds here!" but there is no better feeling then being on stage. You just do what you got to do and hopefully you don't forget your lines or be one of the few that knows that a different formation is going on while everyone else is tapping away doing god knows what. (It was funny though, we had stupid costumes and we came out with mops! We were suppose to me lil sailors of whatever. Twirling em was fun though.) And the class after the dance recital we get a whole speech regarding how horrible we are. I don't think we did all that better after the official performance, but she was all giddy telling us how wonderful we are. Oww...I didn't like that lady. Okay I'm off topic.

    I was scared to death last year when I had to sing a solo in our musical. It was weird for me to do that because I've basically been on a stage my whole life. (Band, chior, dance, etc.)

    I tended to get butterflies just before I went on, but then I was fine. The only time I had really bad stage fright was the time I was the director, I quietly had a nervous breakdown outside the theater while the play was on (probably had something to do with the fact I also wrote the bloody thing).
