DANCE FLOOR ETIQUETTE

Dance Floor Etiquette is designed to make the dance floor a safe and pleasant place to dance and to limit the occurrence of accidents. It may look like common sense but sometimes a reminder is needed.

DO:
….Dance in lines! Listen to the DJ to know what dance is being played and for any floor-splits.
….Sit at the edge of the dance floor and make sure your chair does not get in the dancers’ way.
….Move forward when asked by the DJ – dancers may be struggling for space behind you.
….Leave the floor when the music ends, unless staying for the next dance.
….Be aware of others – take smaller steps when learning a dance or when a popular dance is being played (the dance floor may be fuller than normal).

NEVER:  Kick too high or jump with both feet off the floor – it’s not gymnastics!

DON’T:
….Walk across the floor when the music is playing – always walk around.
….Try to join an existing line when where there is no room for you – it’s called ‘pushing in’!
….Bend down in the middle of the dance floor to tie shoe-laces – move away to the side.
….Carry drinks across the dance floor at ANY time – any and all spillages should be cleaned immediately.

Other information:

A floor-split is when 2 dances are being done at the same time to the same piece of music – usually front & back. It is VERY important that space is left between the two sets of dancers to ensure there are no collisions when dancing.
Partner dancing is occasionally done around the edge of the floor – it is acknowledged that partner dancers have right-of-way, so be aware and give them room.
Everyone was a beginner once and newcomers should be encouraged – but please don’t get up for a dance you don’t know, or exit from the dance floor in the middle of the music.
It is courteous to apologise to a fellow dancer if you bump into them or kick them accidentally!
