Tip #8 Host or attend a Professional Aerial Performance or Host a Student Recital Night
As a Pole Studio, hosting events is one way to keep members engaged and introduce guests to the world of Aerial Arts. Hosting Professional Pole Aerialists or Student Performance Events are some examples of how to keep members and guests interested. Here is an example of a past event with world renowned Aerial Artists. There is no doubt your current students will be excited to see the Pro's perform.
The main goal is to host regular events and keep students coming back. Motivating students to reach their goals and overcome obstacles is an important responsibility. Many students are striving to reach their personal fitness, flexibility and dance goals. Events are a great way to keep members involved. If it is too hard to get the Pro's to come to you, consider gathering a group to attend a Pole Performance show. Additionally, you may want to host an event for your students to show the routine they have been working on. Ask your instructors to perform or assist with choreographing the opening and closing numbers so your show motivates and members and guests can see the range of experience and the benefits of Pole Dance Fitness.
