Developing a Community

A strong, active community quickly becomes a hotbed for gloving talent. When glovers have friends who consistently watch their light shows and offer constructive feedback, they level up at a faster rate and are more encouraged to practice. Developing and facilitating a community helps everyone around you get better, while also making gloving more fun!

What are the benefits?

- Lasting Friendships
- Larger community offers more feedback to learn from.
- More advanced glovers in your area means more talent to help you improve.
- The most active communities produce the most skilled glovers

Finding & Creating Other Glovers

One of the biggest challenges you will face is finding more glovers & flow artists., or even creating brand-new glovers in your area. Creating New glovers, or introducing new people to Gloving, is and always will be one of the most unique experiences you can have as a flow artist. There are a two ways someone can become a glover-

  • Experiencing It First Hand
The easiest way to get someone hooked on Gloving, is if they see it with their own eyes. Videos hardly do the art justice, if you’re able to get someone to a Gloving meetup, and get them to mingle with other good glovers, chances are they’ll be interested. People who like Video Games & Movies usually like Gloving, so if you have a friend who fits the bill, send them an invite to your next FNL!
  • Watching Online
A huge part of Gloving is the Online Community. You’re already gathering group photos & videos of each of your FNL’s, you could put it to good use by creating recap videos, spotlights for the really good Glover’s in your area, and show it to your friends that don’t practice Flow Arts. If you do it right, they won’t want to miss out on the next meetup. Sharing your recap videos on your personal timeline might pull some people you wouldn’t expect

When showing new people gloving, go for the wow-factor. But teach them the simple stuff first.

    Getting people to try out Gloving for the first time, and learn their first set of moves, is tricky. You have to be able to explain clearly what Gloving is, and how to get started. Get familiar with teaching the very basics like Stacking, or Finger Waves. These are easy-to-learn moves that will help it “click” for them. Creating the sense of “wait I can do this too!”, versus harder skill moves like Dials & Digits.
