A lot of people get anxious about performing when watched by others, because we desperately want to perform well. Relaxation techniques like breathing before the event can help a lot, learning to reduce our own expectations, understanding we do not have to be perfect are things which are very helpful too
It is natural to feel stressed while under others observation. You can tell people how you feel and ask them politely to move aside.
