Watching professional bartenders perform and imitating their movements is the right thing to do. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, if you really want to succeed and be famous, you need to have your own unique style.

Interact with viewers

Always smile, no one likes sullen people. Remember that you are an artist first and foremost and flaming is your performance and should be fun and entertain the audience. So keep eye contact with the audience, and always smile. Also make sure your movements are graceful and fluid, not rough and tight.

Take Your Profession Seriously

Since you are a bartender, always try to be friendly and accommodating. Provide a high level of service with a smile. Always try to fulfill the requests of your customers. Be humble and apologize if you’ve made a mistake.
