Stage Fright is a form of extreme anxiety or phobia linked explicitly to performing. Whether the person is afraid of acting, public speaking, singing or dancing, the fear is the same. Stage fright is a form of social anxiety where the person afflicted feels afraid to be in front of a large audience of people. People with stage fright get similar symptoms to someone who has panic or anxiety attacks, sweaty palms, racing heart, shortness of breath or difficulty speaking. Here you will find articles about the origins of stage fright as well as the signs of symptoms. You’ll read about techniques to combat this devastating form of performance anxiety. There are methods that therapists use to help people to be able to speak freely in front of other people.
