Was having a conversation on dance floor etiquette and floor skills the other day. As with everything, I find that some things I found acceptable were considered sins by my friend. Dipping, for example, I always thought that if you had enough room and she said yes, you could go ahead and dip on the dance floor. My friend insisted that with aerials, drops and other fancy moves, it should be kept off the dance floor. But I see many dancers dip and drop to their heart's content in the floor. What are some 'rules' that should be applied on the dance floor and why are these not taught with turn patterns?
