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 to dance one or two dances with one person, then invite someone else to dance.  Just a custom…
  2. Clothing is dressy or casual and clean
  3. Breath mints are provided and deodorant always appreciated
