    At my school theres going to be a performance thing after exams are over, and a group of my friends from my dance school wanted to do a piece in it and asked me if I wanted to do it with them. I wasn't sure but one of my other friends said i might as well do it so I said I would. We had a first rehersal last week and throughout I realised I really don't want to do this performance thing, but I already said I would do it.
    They're planning another rehearsal and I really really don't want to do it, but I don't know how to tell them without them all getting really mad at me. What should I do, should I tell them I can't do it or that I don't want to, or should I still do it even though it's going to take time out of revision and be something I really don't want to do?

    Just say you don't want the time out of revision and you aren't totally sure that you want to do it. Simple.

    Thankyou, that was what I was just thinking of doing but they've already started setting it, and in the first rehearsal two people were supposed to be there but they didn't show up and they spent ages talking about how annoyed they were, and I don't want them all to get annoyed with me

    You're over thinking this - who cares if they get annoyed at you? They'll still be your friends, surely.

    Well if you don't want them getting annoyed at you, you should do it then.

    you either do it or you say you don't want to and they get annoyed, there isn't really a way to 'fix' it so they don't mind, you just need to decide
