My youngest was trying out for the professional nutcracker production. This is her second year of ballet and she really wants to do ballet because she says it is her life. So, we both had no idea what auditions would be like. We showed up, gave the application, and waited. There were so many people there and parents that had no clue what to expect either. She tried out, and then we waited for almost a week. Guess what? She got the part! If she decided not to go because she was nervous, then she would never have been able to experience an audition or have a chance to be in the production. Showing up to things when we are nervous is difficult, but just do it. You never know what awaits you!
