A study of three dancers was conducted to assess the results of neurofeedback on performance anxiety. Prior to undergoing neurofeedback, each subject completed the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory Test (STAI) in order to ascertain whether they had a reportable level of anxiety. The STAI clearly differentiates between the temporary condition of state anxiety and the more general and long-standing quality of trait anxiety. The STAI was also administered prior to the start of each neurofeedback session and before each significant dance performance or audition. During the course of the study the subjects also underwent 20 neurofeedback treatment sessions of 30 minutes each. Two of the three subjects completed the study and for each the results indicated a reduction in anxiety levels over the course of treatment.
