Dance Floor Etiquette

The dance floor etiquette defines where to dance certain types of dances and in what direction.

There are 3 dance areas.

-- CENTER: stationary and "wall" line dancers.

-- INNER LANE - Slow traveling dancers.

-- OUTTER LANE - Fast traveling dancers.

2. Traveling dance direction is ALWAYS in counter-clockwise (ccw) rotation. As you face the stage, you will dance to your left in ccw direction at the speed of the dance lane you are in. DO NOT pass others who are dancing in your lane.

"TRAVELING" dances includes line dances that travel versus line dances that face one or more walls. If you don't know the difference - ask.

 

"SLOW vs FAST" depends on you, not on the dance style.

If you are dancing slower than the fast lane dancers, then move to the slow dance lane. If you are dancing faster than the slow lane dancers, then move to the fast dance lane. If you are dancing faster than the slow lane dancers AND slower than the fast lane dancers -- just pick a dance lane and go with the speed of the dancers in that lane.

REMINDER: Please DO NOT pass others who are dancing in your lane -- it can create an unsafe condition for you, your dance partner, and other dancers near you.
