When I was in Primary school at 12, I was the lead in the school musical.
It was fun, and I did have a good time.
I remember it like it was yesterday, and often go past that very place where
we performed.Nothing has changed in 48 years.
In high school I took drama and we did quite
a few productions to the whole school and in front of a paying audience. I found
it a lot of fun to be part of such shows learning lines and getting dressed up and made up to look like a character.
At high school, college and university but not really in recent years. I always enjoyed singing and dancing but didn't like having to do it in front of people.
As an adult I have regularly conducted training, or given presentations and that is different as I don't feel as judged as I typically know what I am talking about whereas if I was singing or dancing there is (in my case) a huge margin of error.
At High School I was in the choir which is hilarious as I can't sing and had to mime whenever the teacher came near. (It was to get out of sport)
As an adult I have danced at Folk Festivals with an English Country Dance group. I still don't really like it but the first time was terrifying. Not so much because of being on stage but because I'm inclined to make mistakes and was worried ab out spoiling the performance for the others.
Yes, at the age of 6 I was in a tap dance at a ballet recital, wearing a military type outfit. I remember Mum saying that if I forgot the steps, to just smile at the audience. So.....you guessed it - I forgot the steps and "smiled"!. This became a family joke perpetuated by my father. Groovy Grandma
Yes. When I was pretty young I was part of "Singing in the rain" performed by the church I was attending. I remember it was at thd town hall and I was dressed in green with clear cellophane rain hanging on the umbrella I was using. I also did physical culture and also debating, both performed on stages.
