Dance Floor Etiquette - UrbanPro

by Anamica Goel (Kala Vatika Dance Studio, Gurgaon)

dance floor imagIts common & natural to get immersed in the dancing tunes and forget about surrounding world while dancing unless you are a profession. However like everything else, its good to practice certain etiquette while on a dance floor. Many dancers and many styles of dancing can be accommodated on the floor at the same time. This means that we have to follow traditional dance floor etiquette. Let’s always be courteous and we will all have a great time dancing! 

Dances that move in a continuous forward movement should be danced in the outer lanes (counter clockwise which is also the line of dance). There are two lanes depending on the forward movement of the dancers: the outside (fast) lane and the inside (slow) lane. Progressive dances which are danced in the two outer lanes are Waltz, Fox-trot, Tango, Viennese Waltz, and the Two-Step. These dancers generally have the right of way, but should not cut through the floor center!

The floor center is where line dances, spot dances, and “position” dances are held such as the Jive, West Coast Swing, Slow Dancing, and Cha Cha. Do not dance in the outside lanes unless everyone else is doing them at the same time!

If we all follow the golden rules of dance floor etiquette, then all can enjoy dancing to the fullest.
