Dancing Etiquette

Welcome to our vibrant dance community! Just like any social activity, dancing comes with its own set of etiquettes to ensure a positive and enjoyable experience for everyone. Here are some guidelines to keep in mind as you hit the dance floor:

Personal Hygiene

  • Please be mindful of your personal hygiene. If you tend to perspire heavily, consider bringing a towel and/or spare t-shirt to freshen up during the dance sessions. It's recommended to bring deodorant, body spray, or cologne to maintain a fresh and inviting atmosphere on the dance floor.

Clean Hands and Spaces

  • Stay home if you have flu symptoms or have been in contact with someone who does. When blowing your nose, move away from others, sneeze into your elbow, discard tissues in a bin, and wash or sanitize your hands before rejoining the class.

Respectful Communication

  • Approach others with respect and a friendly attitude. Non-verbal cues are crucial, so pay attention to your partner's comfort level and adjust your dancing style accordingly. If you need to decline a dance, do so politely. Remember, everyone is here to have a good time, and courteous communication enhances the overall dance experience.

Inclusive Atmosphere

  • Be inclusive and welcoming to dancers of all levels. Remember that everyone is on their unique dance journey, so offer encouragement and support to those who may be less experienced.

Space Awareness

  • Respect the personal space of your fellow dancers. Pay attention to the density of the dance floor and adjust your movements accordingly to avoid collisions.

Feedback with Tact

  • If you wish to offer feedback to your dance partner, do so with tact and kindness. Constructive feedback can be helpful, but it's important to communicate it in a way that fosters a positive learning experience.
