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!
- The “One-Dance Custom” is to dance one or two dances with one person, then invite someone else to dance. Just a custom…
- Clothing is dressy or casual and clean
- Breath mints are provided and deodorant always appreciated
