I was an amateur dancer for a bit. I've also given a few speeches and been in a play.

No; I did operate the stage lighting for a few school plays though.

I did a comedy bit in front of a full auditorium once.

When I was in college I had an alter-ego who sporadically show up late at night, sometimes at the bar or a party, sometimes at the computer lab or the machine shop, but only in the wee hours of the morning when I was too tired or *festive*. She was a sassy, angry, no-BS, Judge Judy-ish caricature that was great for venting/roasting/satire. My senior year I was asked if the alter-ego would present a few awards at the department fake awards show (mostly humorous categories), so I did a little routine while in character and in between awards. It's the only time she's showed up before midnight, but she seemed to be a hit. I figured I'd retire while at the height of my performing career. That's it as far as stage performances for me.

Yes, but I very much try not to. Last time was back in HS, as part of a performance for the drama class I was taking.
Bork is too lazy to bother thinking up a witty signature. :polarbear:

Yes, many times. Mostly music but occasionally theater or dance too.

Yes! But I preferred to do tech.
Ugh, I'm tired of my signature.

Yes, during the late 90s. I joined a stage in our village. It was a great experience :-)

Yup a couple of times modelling my own art thing or a friend's hair creation. If you count performing without a stage I took a few really amazing performance art classes in school which involved a fair amount of performances.

I actually loved it despite normally having a lot of performance anxiety for other things (presentations, guitar classes). Both can be pretty meditative. But in small doses.

Yes.

When I was in college, I did some folk dancing for some shows that celebrated Filipino American culture. It was fun despite all the times I had performance anxiety (which were for all shows).

I even danced in a loin cloth in my first show because that was the Freshman men's rite of passage dance for those participating.
