Dance Etiquette 119

Dance Etiquette 119

B) Dancing at Special Events:

Dancing is by its very nature a close contact sport and therefore sometimes requires more explicit instructions than in day to day situations. Here are some helpful hints in this area:
As a ballroom dancer, you will be encouraged to attend many semi-formal or formal events. These events, as would be expected, revolve around a great chance to get outside of the studio and use the social dance skills you have been learning. As dancing is the focus at these events, you should pay attention to the amount of alcohol that is being consumed at dinner. Ballroom dancing on a social floor is a lot like driving, and is a challenging activity after having that one glass of wine too many.

Remember that you are asking fellow dancers to dance, and the experience might not be a pleasant one if too much alcohol has been consumed during dinner.
Courtesy and etiquette is a lost art – help bring it back!
