Smile and Have Lots of Fun!

  • You may be new, shy or plain scared to get out on the dancefloor, just do it and have fun with it.  Every dancer was a beginner once.  You will find us welcoming and inclusive so jumping in and dancing is the fastest way to get good at it.

Comfort and Safety

  • Take sharp keys out of your pockets

  • Do not wear sharp or protruding rings; remove watches

  • Keep your nails short

  • Stiletto heels are sharp enough to pierce a foot!  Wear dance shoes as these don't damage the floor

  • Long hair ideally should be put up or tied, it's not fun to be hit in the face with flying hair during turns and spins

Personal Hygiene

  • Good hygiene before and during the dance shows respect and consideration for the other dancers

  • Take a shower and brush your teeth before going to a dance.  Wear antiperspirant deodorant

  • Bring a hand towel and spare clothes if you perspire a lot while dancing

  • Drink plenty of fluids as dancing can cause dehydration, which causes a dry mouth and this can result in bad breath

  • Nobody wants to dance with someone who is smelly or unclean!!

Asking for a Dance

  • If you want to dance, just ask someone.  Yes, that includes you ladies!  No need to wait to be asked by the guys, ladies can ask guys too

  • Whether you're a beginner or a pro, the general rule is to accept unless you need a break and in this instance it's nice to ask for a later dance instead

On the Dancefloor

  • When not dancing stand clear of the dancefloor.  If you want to get to the opposite side walk around the edge, NOT through the dancers

  • Don't do moves that you know your partner cannot do

  • If the floor is crowded take smaller steps and watch out for collisions


Lastly, thank the DJ!  If you had fun, let us know, if not, let us know that too, we are here to help you progress and have fun so your feedback is important to us!
