Can performing really be addictive? Yes and no. In the medical sense, dancing and performing are definitely not addictive, but many dancers report getting a "rush" from being on stage. While dancing, the body releases endorphins, which are chemicals in the brain that are responsible for positive moods. Endorphins also act like natural painkillers, so even after hours of gruelling rehearsal, dancers don't necessarily feel their aching muscles and joints when they're on stage. Once they start dancing, many people find it hard to quit because the enjoyment factor is so compelling. It's hard to find something else to take its place since few other activities make them feel so connected and alive.
