Something that I think about from time to time (and even got asked to comment on as part of a college newspaper's report on social dancing). While certainly not intending to generalize by any means, I have observed that the friendliness level at social dances seems to be connected to the type of dance it is. For example, I have personally found that EC Swing events seem to have the friendliest most relaxed atmosphere and people, while more traditional ballroom is noticeably less so at times, somewhat more uptight (though I have been to one regular mixed ballroom studio party that is extremely friendly). WC Swing events I have noticed some uptightness at too (though I love the dancing). I haven't really delved into the Salsa scene yet, so I am curious of your observations in that realm too. Any thoughts or observations from y'all?
