I am still not a very good dancer and I still get nervous and think too much when I jam with the people in the dance studio. I have gradually become less nervous, though. However, yesterday I went to a Cypher in a city I have not been to before and danced with people I don’t know. I was still fine in the beginning when only very few people were there, but when suddenly a big circle formed and I went into the middle, I got extremely nervous. I did not know what to do, I missed every beat, and my dancing was horrible. I got out really quickly and was too nervous to go back in for some time. After a while, I got better though and tried again and again and again until it ended up being really fun. Sometimes you just have to jump head first into a situation and trust that everything will be fine.
