Do you have approach anxiety when it comes to dancing? Sure, that circle of ridiculously hot women looks impenetrable, but have you ever wondered why you get that sinking feeling of butterflies in your stomach?
It’s not because of your dance moves, because if you’re reading this, then you have already picked up a DVD and learned how to get jiggy with it on the dance floor.
And no, it’s not because the bar is really packed, and you’re not drunk enough because you can’t make your way to the bar.
Turns out there’s actually a scientific reason for why we get nervous.
The good folks at AsapSCIENCE put together a short video in honor of the Olympics, because apparently, going down a 100 foot tall ski jump at 60 mph causes some of the athletes to get that sinking anxious feeling too.
If they can take the plunge off a ski jump into the unknown, you can take the plunge to get out on the dance floor!
