DO NOTs
  • DO NOT…Blame each other, 80% of the time it’s the lead’s fault, 20% it’s the follow’s, no one is right 100% of the time
  • DO NOT…Refuse to dance with someone who asks you for the first time (If you turn someone down for a dance you must not dance with anyone for that song)
  • DO NOT…be rough! (this is for GENTLEmen in particular) be respectful of your partner and do not toss her around, if you are rough and she fears being hurt, she is entitled to walk away from your dance
  • DO NOT…Give lessons to your partner while social dancing (unless your partner is ok with it) you’re there to enjoy the music, not take a class
  • DO NOT…Dance numerous songs with the same person in a row, everyone should get a chance to dance with everyone else
DOs
  • DO…Dance with as many people as possible, it’s SOCIAL dancing
  • DO…Stay in your dancing slot and control your partner, dancing can be dangerous if you start crashing into each other
  • DO…Ask people to dance (it is socially acceptable for both men AND women to ask, we love it when you do!)
  • DO…SMILE, even if you make a mistake, or your partner messes up
  • DO…Tell people if you’re a beginner or learning, we all had to start somewhere and it helps to let people know
  • DO…Be patient with each other, dancing is a relationship and it takes time to understand each other
