Etiquette

The Ballroom Culture We Wish to Create

Partner dance is enjoyable as long as it is based on mutual respect and trust. At Harmony Ballroom, we desire to create a culture in which you can feel comfortable and have fun.

Our Ballroom Culture

We want to create a positive environment that encourages learning for everyone through mutual trust and respect of teachers and students. If you have any questions, please contact us.

  1. We have a 24-hour cancellation policy for private lessons.  Failure to cancel within 24 hours of a private lesson or no-shows will result in a charge for that lesson. Missed group lessons are not reimbursed.

  2. Be on time to your class. If you are running late to your private lesson, please call or send a text. If you are late to a group lesson, you are welcome to join in, but the instructor will not be able to start over for you.

  3. Please silence your cell phones.  If you have an emergency, please make the call off the dance floor.

  4. Ballroom dancing is a close contact sport. Remember mints and deodorant.

  5. Our group classes welcome students of all levels. Please abide by the standard policy: “Students don’t correct other students.” When the instructor chooses not to correct something, it is for a reason.

  6. Questions are always welcome.  When registering for a class, talk to us about proper placement, as some classes are aimed at beginning dancers and others are geared more towards advanced students.

  7. Please keep your comments positive during group classes.  If you have a disagreement with the instructor, address it privately with him or her.  

  8. We do not have a set dress code.  Please dress appropriately for a dance studio.  Ladies, wear “dance spandex” or shorts under your short skirt. Men, no cut off shirts, please.

  9. Dance shoes are preferred, but street shoes are welcome.  Please check for rocks or exposed stiletto heel nails before you step onto the dance floor.

 

Please keep these etiquette policies in mind when you are at Harmony Ballroom, and also when you are a guest at other studios.  We love hearing positive feedback from other professionals about our students. Thank you!
