8 Ways to Become a Confident Performer

We all want to perform as confidently and professionally as possible, but sometimes that's easier said than done. What makes a performer confident and enticing to watch? Well let’s go through a small list that you can check off before any show or concert!

1. Be mindful of your self talk. We all have that little voice in our head reminding ourselves we made a mistake. Be sure you are being kind to yourself because if you tell yourself you are untalented or a failure you will act as though that is true.


2. Envision your best performance. Don’t focus on worst case scenario, but instead envision the best performance possible.


3. Practice (before the day of!) We've all left memorizing or practicing till the last minute at one time or another, but this causes you unnecessary stress. Do yourself a favor and practice ahead of the actual performance date.


4. Record yourself beforehand and review the recording. This very simple trick allows you to hear yourself more clearly and see your performance from an outside perspective. Also for singers/actors performing in front of the mirror can really help to add extra emotion and make the piece more enjoyable to watch.


5. Dress your best. Wearing your favorite outfit and feeling your best will give you the confidence to perform your best as well.


6. Get plenty of rest the night before. The more sleep you have for the day of the performance, the more focused and calm you will feel.


7. This is a big one, DON’T RUSH. Yes it can be very scary especially if you haven’t performed a lot before, but try your best to keep a slower pace and take deep breaths to keep you calm.


8. Finally and most importantly, have fun! Even if you make a mistake it’s okay. Try your best to have fun doing what you love, and know that everyone watching wants you to succeed but will still love you even if things don’t go perfectly!
