We all have moments when we want to refuse an invitation. Maybe we’re tired, or we don’t like the song, or we don’t dance this dance, or we want to go to the bathroom, or we plan to make a phone call. Don’t take rejection as a personal insult when someone says no! Accept the rejection and feel free to invite later.

3. Say you’re sorry.
If You run into another couple on the dance floor, step on someone’s foot, knock over someone’s cocktail or just take away someone’s partner, inviting her to dance, say sincerely: “Sorry”. If Your actions have more serious consequences, consider compensating for the damage: “Let me bring You some ice?” Let me put that away, “ ” Let me buy You another cocktail?”. This will allow us to maintain a sense of comfort in the community.

We all know which parts of the body should not be touched in public. Even when it’s dark on the dance floor, avoid it. If You just have to cross the line, be sure your partner doesn’t mind. Don’t assume it’s okay just because Your partner danced like that a minute ago or because You’ve done it before. Consent is important all the time.

5. Behave correctly
If You want to share Your observations about the dance partner, first ask if it is necessary for him. We don’t always focus on improving our technique – sometimes we just want to relax and have a good time. Make sure your partner is interested in Your opinion or analysis. (Note: if Your partner is hurting you, please talk about it immediately. Such feedback is always acceptable, and if the partner does not accept it, this is the reason for stopping the dance.) If Your partner really wants feedback, try to Express it in a constructive way. Mention what You liked or what it does particularly well. Then give a General idea of something that turns out worse and how it can be corrected.
