As we enter this first week of December, Nutcracker season is well under way. If you haven't started performing yet, the onslaught is just around the corner. No doubt you've spent weeks or months preparing your body for the physical demands ahead. But let's make sure your mind is prepped as well. Because no matter how physically capable you are...we all know those nasty little demons in your head can sabotage all your efforts in an instant, turning even your most confident variation into a disaster if you don't know how to manage them. So, to help keep those mental demons in check...
I hope this helps you make the most of your stage time, make the biggest impact with your art, and allows you to fully enjoy your experience under the spotlight this Nutcracker season!
