General Guidelines

To help us create a beautiful space together, please:

Bring your curiosity, openness, sense of adventure, and acceptance.  
The most important thing we can offer each other is a willingness to show up and be true, take risks and experiment in the way we move, and spare ourselves and others from judgments.

Please, no conversations on the dance floor. 
Using words to communicate an immediate need is always welcome. However, we dedicate the floor to movement, music, connection, the sound of feet slapping on the floor. This allows for the body to speak and be heard and for our minds to rest into the spaciousness of the moment.

Please remember to silence your cell phone.

Interact with small children in a helpful way.
Because small children have a harder time regulating their own talking, we’re mindful when engaging them — we try to do so in a way that encourages movement and physical interaction, not conversation.

Please, don’t take photos/videos.

Be clean.
We arrive with clean bodies and clothes, as some are sensitive to body odors. We also avoid chemical perfumes and deodorants, as some are sensitive to those. At the same time we understand that bodies sweat, and we welcome the inevitable scent that arises when people dance exuberantly together.

And be clean.
Please don’t use alcohol, drugs,  or other consciousness-altering substances before or during the dance.

Be mindful of where your body is in relation to other bodies. 
There are sometimes lots of us. For your safety and others’ safety, maintain awareness especially when coming on and off the dance floor. Be particularly aware of small children, elders and when entering and exiting the dance floor during songs. Dance and move with awareness.

Treat your space with respect.
At the WOW Hall we are asked not to dance on the stage (or play on it). We may have other requests from time to time ~ but generally speaking, please use common sense and courtesy.

Please arrive and depart on time or within the boundaries of our venue rental agreement.
Please exit the space in a timely manner and respect that there are often other events that follow us. We want to cultivate good relations with the folks that put so much love and care into the venues we use, Thanks for your support and…

 

~Thanks for dancing with us!~
