NH Men Learn How To Be Gentlemen at Community Partners

Read the comments from the staff at Community Partners. I recently had the opportunity to work with 37 men at Community Partners www.dssc9.org The sessions focused on How to Be Gentlemen.  Simple table manners, choosing appropriate clothing for going out in public, dating do’s and don’ts, confidence at a dance, and simple dance instructions.  The sessions prepared the men for an upcoming Dance Social.

Comments from staff director:

Great session last night. As you noted the guys have been very attentive which bodes well with their retaining the lessons from your presentation. The techniques you use that are very effective with this group certainly start with,
  1. Your enthusiasm and high energy – its contagious with this group and is essential for holding their attentions
  2. Humor – making light of situations and every day occurrences (“what a gas!”) almost everyone in this group can relate to and have fun with, while driving home the important points.
  3. Interactive – getting members involved such as having volunteers come up to practice appropriate boundaries while dancing.
  4. Making it relevant to specific events/situations that many of the participants will find themselves in such as the upcoming dance.
