Candace Cameron Bure tells People that she’s been working on her self-confidence this week in preparing for tonight’s new dance on Dancing With The Stars. She’s been fighting her nerves for the whole experience. Read on for more and let’s hope she can conquer her demons tonight.
This week was all about building my self-confidence on the dance floor. After last week’s Little Mermaid dance, Carrie Ann said what Mark has been telling me since week two: I need to get my nerves and self-doubt out of my head! I’ve been dealing with nerves through this whole experience, and while I was hoping they’d get better each week, finding my comfort zone during camera-blocking day and the live show has had the opposite effect. I’ve found myself doubting more and more.
Week six is “party anthem” week, and it’s all about having fun and letting go. This seems to be my inner stumbling block, which is actually the opposite of who I am with my family and friends! Mark and I practiced our cha-cha all week, but the real test will be when I get out on the dance floor in front of the lights, cameras and live audience.
I really do feel that my insecurities are becoming a little less important each week, and I’m trusting and believing that my confidence will shine through more and more. As I read so many of your comments, I consistently see, “Just let go!” – and trust me when I say, “I’m trying!” I really am.
