Help for audition nerves! Please read below

I am auditioning for the ballet Don Quixote today. I am trying for the role of Kitri, who is usually danced by a prima, but not in our student production. My stomach is doing flips, I can't see straight and I've been sick every morning for 3 days now. I haven't even made myself throw up and have actually eaten in preparation for this audition. I really want to get it, I just need tips on how to feel better so that I can dance my very best. Thanks so much

I heard visualizing the whole process of audition (tests, interviews, whatever) over and over could reduce the stress and build up confidence. It's like imagining physical exercises really help to build strength!

Practice relaxation techniques (you can google them) and rely on your training. Once the audition starts, you will not feel this way if you focus. And, this is beside the point, please don't throw up on purpose. Ballerinas are beautiful and shouldn't hurt themselves.
