Encourage Practice

Make sure your child is practicing their routine in advance, as this will help them to feel more confident and ready for the recital. Encourage them to practice the routine in its entirety and to focus on their technique and form.

Have a Positive Attitude

A positive attitude is key to success. Make sure your child is feeling confident and excited about the performance. Encourage them and remind them of the hard work they put in to make this moment possible.

Ensure Self-Care

Make sure your child is taking care of themselves both physically and mentally. Make sure they are getting enough rest and eating healthy meals. Additionally, ensure they are taking breaks to avoid burnout, and that they are doing activities they enjoy to decrease stress levels.

Talk It Out

It’s completely normal to be a little nervous before a big performance. Talk to your child and let them know it’s okay to be nervous and that you’re proud of them for stepping out of their comfort zone and giving the performance their best effort.
