Being A Good Participant

Please do not offer unsolicited advice to fellow dancers either in class or on the social dance floor.

Be courteous and respectful to others, however, it is not required to dance with someone if you feel it is an uncomfortable situation. Trust your instincts.

Please use your full range of senses on the dance floor to avoid accidental collisions and injuries. It is every dancer’s responsibility to be aware of their own and their partner’s movement and position, as well as the movement and position of the dancers surrounding them, in order to avoid all forms of dangerous contact.

Please be respectful to both event staff and Endicott staff, even if you are experiencing a personal frustration. Without the goodwill of these individuals, a smoothly functioning event is impossible.

Finally, be aware of your own boundaries and physical needs. Do not neglect your health, do remember to sleep, do wash your hands frequently, and do remember to take your meds if applicable.
