To ensure that your dancing in the salon
is an enjoyable experience for yourself, your partner and other
dancers, please observe the following:
Ideally couples should be moving round the
floor (anti-clockwise) as one. To this end, please do not take
too long dancing on the spot figures or stop for a chat with your
partner or with others.
The dance floor is meant to have lanes.
Depending on floor size, there may be an outer, middle, inner,
and centre. If you must merge into another lane, do so consciously
and courteously. Also, please try to avoid stepping back and travelling
against the line of dance.
Please be aware of other couples and keep
your distance in order to avoid collisions. If this happens, apologise
with a smile, even if you don’t think it was your fault.
Cut-ins and zig-zags across lanes and steps
or movements that could create kicks can be unsafe so please try
to avoid them.
Please do not teach on the dance floor.
Please don’t walk across the dance
floor when people are dancing.
It is polite to dance with your partner
for at least 3 dances although more is fine, if you both want
