Every performer will, at some point, fall down on stage. It's what you do when you get up that makes the show.

Mistakes will always happen. You may forget choreography or words or you may trip and even fall down. The key to making a performance is the recovery. In some instances you can make it seem as though there was no mistake at all. In others, however, recovery is not as disguised. I have my “Smile-and-Shrug” Method. Its easy. Whenever you fall down you use it as an opportunity to connect with the audience, make eye contact or look into the light, smile out of one side of your mouth then just give a small single-shoulder shrug. That's it. The audience will love it. Happy Falling!
