Salsa Nightclub Dance Floor Etiquette

Dance Floor Etiquette ...

Yes, there are rules about dance floor rights and wrongs.  Here are some of them...
  • It's not cool to stand right ON the dance floor to socialize.  Even experienced salsa dancers, who should know better, sometimes stand right on the dance floor talking, drinking, smoking.  Do what you like, but do it AWAY from the dance floor!
  • Speaking of which... be nice to fellow dancers and avoid bumping into them.  If it's crowded on the floor - and these days most floors are crowded, dance small.  Most important, try to remember, your partner is not disposable - don't toss her around like a bowling ball.
  • A hardwood dance floor should be treated with care.  Drinks and cigarettes on the dance floor are a NO NO! When you spill liquid on a hardwood floor, it becomes a hazardous wet spot.  Even when it dries, this spot is pretty much ruined for dancers the rest of the night because it becomes "tacky" and you can't slide across it.
  • If you are a beginning salsa dancer, remember that everyone out there has probably experienced that same sweaty palm, stiff-as-a-board, jittery feeling.  It will pass.
  • If you or your partner screw up a step, get past the urge to argue about who's screwing up.   Remember - there are no mistakes!  It's ONLY dancing, and everyone's there to have fun.
  • If you're a woman who's not being asked to dance, try standing near the edge of the dance floor; smile, sway to the music, and look like you really NEED to dance to this song.  Make eye contact.   Dance with the first person who asks.  Once you get out there a couple of times with different partners, other potential partners will know you won't turn them down.  ALSO, don't be afraid to ask guys to dance.  It's cool!
  • Final and most important point, if you want to look good dancing, you should  take dance lessons at By the Sea Ballroom & Latin Dance Studio.
