    Ive currently danced for 12 years in my life and I love it. My last dance show id ever be doing with my dance club is right in the middle of my GCSEs. Ive thought about only doing 1 performance but it wouldn’t be the one thats being filmed. I realise that I really need to give it up but whenever my mum says about it or i think about giving it up i get all teary. I have other performing commitments and am taking performing arts at A Level. Had anyone been through the same thing or have any advice for me?? Thanks!

    I think you shouldn’t give it up, you might regret it later. Just find a way to make dance and studies work together, but I’d prioritize studies and keep dance as a hobby

    I really would live to do it but my geography exam is the day after my dance show and i really want to prioritise my studies. Im also not enjoying my dance class as much as i used to and feel im not good enough, but the thought of giving it up is heartbreaking

    Well maybe you don’t have to give it up fully but do it less often? And because it’s GCSEs, if you prepared for your geography exam before the dance show (so instead of cramming the day before cram the day before that) then I don’t think you’d have a problem anyway.

    Thanks for the help! But im still really undecided. The problem is our school is really far behind with geography and we are having to teach a whole topic as homework and thats the exam i have after my dance exam. And if i cut down my dance classes i am unable to be in the dances anyway

    Well if you act as if your exam was on the day of the show, rather than the next day, you’d prepare yourself for that day. You shouldn’t *really* cram the night before anyway, by then you should be ready to take the exam, so I think if you planned your revision right you’d be able to do it, you can’t lose well revised knowledge in 24 hours. I’d still advise on cutting down on your dance classes when you get to college because of the amount of work you’ll have to do, not being able to take part in shows might just be a sacrifice you’re going to have to make unfortunately. I would wait and see how you get on first though, then if you find it to be an overwhelming workload then I’d cut down but don’t worry too much as of now
