The training of novices is a very serious matter given that the initial training determines their attitude to the entire process.
If a wrong tone is set, the novice may not come for the training session next time.
Once you spot a novice in the gym, approach him, get acquainted, and have a short talk to win his sympathy.
Before beginning training, learn about previous injuries, state of health, sporting and dancing record and, most importantly, the goal of training sessions.
Adjust the load based upon the answers received.
If a student comes to train not for sporting achievements but for rest after work, do not pressure him/her, give him/her a chance to do the elements in his/her own tempo and for own enjoyment.
Conversely, if you are dealing with a sportsman determined to achieve results, put him/her under control and apply strict requirements in performance of elements.
Whoever your novice is, do not force him/her in the first days to exert too hard every minute of the session.
Give your student a chance to rest between approaches, look around himself and observe others.
Novices are sizing up the situation. They try to determine if this choice suits them.
They heed themselves. That is why your support is extremely important for them in the initial stage.
Praise the novices for whatever small advance, supply examples of and argument for the pole dance.
Another important task, from the very first moments of training, is to create a positive mood and maintain attention.
Even if a student is physically strained, but morally satisfied, he/she is sure to return.
Be friendly and keep up a cheerful atmosphere in the group of your pole dance classes.
Work with novices is a never-ending, search for motivations, approaches to a student and a means of developing the right skills.
