Maintain a healthy diet and good hydration habits. An athlete’s body requires solid and sound nutrition to make and keep it strong enough to handle both practice and performance. Healthy foods fuel the energy required for competitive ballroom dancing. Drinking water is important to prevent dehydration and cramps.
Enjoy the victories and don’t wallow in defeat. Most sports have a 24-hour rule that calls for letting go of the most recent competition and getting on with the next one. Overconfidence from winning or discouragement from not winning will surely affect your next performance. So let it go!
