In the series of helpful flowcharts here is another… Following a conversation between dancers on social media the question arose what to do when you experience (more than) uncomfortable encounters on the dance floor. People agreed you should stay corteous… but the situation can become such you should say “Personal Safety FIRST!”
Thus, leaving a dance is ALWAYS an option. Eventhough it’s one you will (hopefully) hardly use.
Did you ever leave a dance (or wished you had) due to a bad experience during the dance?Join the conversation…
So if you ever find yourself in a situation you don’t like consider your options. If you are not sure how to non-verbally communicate your needs or want to learn blocking movements you don’t like or to protect yourself from (further) injury, consult your dance teacher or ask questions in a workshop.
