India is a country where all forms of dance are practiced and performed. The knowledge that we gain is very interesting and useful and is respected over a period of years. As years passed importance to dancing was appreciated and accepted. Researches about dancers and their dancing have been traced over a long period of time. It has become common to see dancers making an independent career in dancing. The present study was an attempt to study the perfectionism and self-compassion in dancers. Self-compassion entails being kind and understanding toward oneself in instances of pain or failure instead of being harshly self-critical. It is an attitude of unconditional kindness towards oneself, whereas perfectionism is often seen as a positive trait that increases your chances of success, but it can result in self-defeating thoughts or behaviour that make it harder to realize goals. Standardized scales of perfectionism and compassion in dancers were measured. Participants ranging the age from 20 to 40 were measured. The results have shown that there is no significant relation between perfectionism and self-compassion.
