What is Social Dancing Etiquette?

Dance etiquette is a set of guidelines that help us navigate the social dimensions of dancing. Why do we care about dance etiquette? Because it is nice to know how to go about in the dancing circles. It makes the difference between having a happy or unhappy dancing experience, the difference between people wanting, or not wanting to dance with you.

For a more complete guide please see "Social Dancing Etiquette" on the Club website under Documents and Forms.


Is there a dress code for dances?

- Yes. Please see the Club Dress Code policy on the Club website under Documents and Forms.
