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
- Watching Online
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.
