In performance things can go wrong within a split of a second. If the pole is just slippery on one little spot it can throw off everything you have choreographed, and you will have to quickly improvise. If it’s a live performance then your audience can throw you through loops with comments and actions, your wardrobe can malfunction, not to mention the shoe errors I have encountered on countless occasions. Even ever stage has booby traps — from uneven floors, to sticky floors, to even holes in the stage, or nails, or splinters …  I have encountered it all. A performance peace equals life experiences. Life always throws you obstacles. Things change from one second to the other. You never know what’s going to happen next. One second you are fine, the next you hear a family member had a stroke or is even dead … But just like in performance you have to go on with dignity. No matter what, you continue even if you don’t feel like it. You are a professional performer and a professional life battler. The show goes on. The show must go on.
