A person who has been admitted into the life of particular religious institute. Before novices make a permanent commitment to an order or congregation, they begin a period of intense spiritual formation, called the â€œnovitiate.â€ The novitiate is an opportunity for the novices and members of the institute to grow in an understanding of their vocation to the vowed life and to their institute. They also deepen their understanding of prayer, Scripture, liturgy, Church history, and the nature of the particular institute. The novitiate is between one and two years in length, depending on the background of the congregation.

a layman who is preparing to be a monk, but has not yet taken the vows. As such, he wears the inner cassock (podrjasnik), lives as part of a monastic community, and is under the guidance of a spiritual father. Since he is not bound by vows, he may without prejudice terminate his novitiate and return to the world if he finds the monastic life unsuitable. The usual period of novitiate is three years, but this may be longer or shorter according to the discretion of the monastic authorities and the spiritual father. In the life of St. Tikhon, his friend, Nikandr Bekhteev, remained a novice until his death.
This event is geared for those that are not necessarily beginners, but not yet advanced. This event normally consists of two dances, such as Cha-Cha and Rumba (Latin) or Waltz and Quickstep (Standard), just to name a few. Sometimes it will consist of three dances. Both dances, or all three dances are danced in succession with enough time between each dance to establish a starting place on the dance floor for the next dance. This event is usually offered in either 'Closed' or 'Open'. 'Novice Closed' requires that the dancers include patterns found in the syllabus only. 'Novice Open' allows dancers to dance patterns not necessarily found in any syllabus.
