DANCEWELL BALLROOM GENERAL PARTY ETIQUETTE
Our dances are as much a social event as a "Dance". We feel parties are for socializing and having great fun with everyone!
1. The "One Dance Custom" is that of dancing one or two dances with one person, then inviting someone else to dance. This is not required at our parties but is the general way.
2. Clothing is dressy or casual and clean
3. Breath mints are provided and deodorant always appreciated
4. We believe that Individuals "teaching" on the dance floor is inappropriate to a social dance, especially when "unasked-for"
