afraid of class

i don't know why but i'm beginning to be afraid of center work. i can manage most of the combinations but i can't help feeling overwhelmed by the exercises. This has caused me to feel intimidated by other students and really afraid to try new things.


i am especially tensed when i have to do stuff that i'm not good at.


can anyone please give me some advice so that i'll be more confident?? thanks

Are you in a class that is too advanced for you? Perhaps you need to spend a bit more time in a slightly lower level class? If this is not the case, then I don't know why you would feel this way. Are you perhaps spending too much time and energy on comparisons, and not enough on yourself and just doing the work?

in fact i'm in a class which is too basic for me. i've tried more advance classes and they are ok, i can catch up. but i guess i just have inferior complex.


i don't go for classes everyday only thrice a week and can only practice for about an hour everyday so perhaps, i need more practice?

It may be that you need more practice. I use to have problems similar to your in class, until I started going to dance every day of the week for and hour and a half- two hours of dancing a day. It really helped. But if you can't do that, work at home. Trust me, I know where you rcoming from on this one. :)
