I want to resurrect this one, since it's definitely an issue when the scholarship event is in the evening session. Especially since dancing open standard in the evening session is a new thing (it's the 2nd time I've done it so far). I've videoed both dancesport series (which was in the end of morning session) and open scholarship (evening), and dancesport series was still the better one of the two. Even one of my parental entities picked up on the fact that I wasn't as relaxed in the scholarship round, and if someone of such limited dance experience (a few months of ballet roughly half a century ago) notices this, then the judges would definitely pick up on that as well.

now that we are at a higher level  we don't have many chances to be on the floor. Unless we get it right first time we have no fall back. so when we did our levels we have no warm up so we will have to make sure we practice before hand , get to the venue earlier. try and get that first set nerves under control

I hate it when the first set is a straight out final.  Undecided

I think first out finals are a real test of dancing confidence and performance ability - some couples can just nail it straight off.  I'm still not sure what the best way is to warm up - dance a little and go or warm up to near exaustion as if you've just done one heat.  I know a top couple that does the latter...

*bump*  Has anybody done any further work on first set performance anxiety since this discussion was had?  I'd love to hear updates from you all, if there are any.  Cool

I read somewhere that it was a good idea to get tired first - run up and down some stairs!  It gets rid of the adrenalin a bit - and you then have to worry more about being exhausted Grin

yes you should never go on the floor cold...must do a good warm up and if running up and down stairs work that is great but definitely warming up even before stretching.

I wonder if anyone does?  There may be dancers that prefer to go on cold to avoid performance anxiety or something...
