Special Events and Workshops excluded. “People tend to look at dancers like we are these little jewels, little cardboard cutouts, and yet we have blood and guts and go through Hell.” Susan Jaffe Dance Floor Courtesy is a beneficial tool for dancing on the ballroom floor. If all dancers were to observe dance floor etiquette and technique, the dance floor would be able to accommodate up to its maximum capacity and still permit movement and more enjoyment. When the dance floor is overcrowded, all dancers should refrain from "performing" and participate in "social" dance, or perhaps even choose to politely sit some numbers out to ease the situation. Social dances are classified as either progressive or spot dances. In progressive dances such as foxtrot, waltz, etc., the rule is to move around the floor only in a counterclockwise direction. This also includes the patterns that take the man backwards. In spot dances, such as the swing, cha cha, rumba, etc., the couple should try to keep as much as possible in and around the small area where they began dancing. Other dancers' space should be respected. When the dance music is such that it permits more than one type of dance, such as a foxtrot or swing, the swing dancers should go towards the center of the dance floor thereby making it possible for the foxtrot dancers to move freely around the outside of the dance floor. Dance patterns in which the forward movement is temporarily suspended should be executed in the centre or fringes of the dance floor, unless one is sure the dance flow will not be impeded. This courtesy also applies to newer dancers, moving towards the center allows the experienced dancers to really move around the outside of the floor. Dancers getting on the dance floor should not interfere with those already dancing, simply because it is convenient to start in a particular spot. Watch out, and move onto the floor with respect for the people moving towards you. Couples should not stop on the dance floor to make conversation, argue or discuss the working of a dance pattern in such a way that they block others from continuing to dance. If you are trying to get to the other side of the dance floor, walk around not thru the dancers. The way one dances and the selection of dance patterns should be governed by the size of the dance floor and the traffic. It is incumbent upon all dancers to be alert and watch out for others when changing imaginary lanes or executing a maneuver that may put them in someone else's path. Like in driving, dancers should use good judgment. Good manners dictate that you apologize when you accidentally bump or kick someone. It is quite annoying to be cut off, bumped, or hurt by overly enthusiastic or inconsiderate dancers who do not observe good dance floor etiquette and technique. Practice at JDB is $6 per person. A JDB Special Savings Card ($60) is good for Friday & Saturday general dancing, Tea Dances, Sunday Night Practice, Daytime & Evening practice hours. Get 10 sessions plus 2 FREE sessions!
