The answer is yes- stage fright is an anxiety disorder. Stage fright is also known as performance anxiety, which is a type of social anxiety disorder (social phobia). Stage fright, or performance anxiety, is the fear of embarrassing yourself or the fear of social scrutiny when you are giving a performance in front of an audience. So this can be the fear of giving a speech, giving a presentation, singing, or playing music in front of an audience. But stage fright only occurs when you are in a performance situation. Nonetheless, stage fright is an anxiety disorder that can be quite debilitating without help.
