At iDance we consider the health and safety of all of our attendees to be an important priority. Please familiarise yourself

with the following codes of conduct to help make sure that everyone can enjoy an enjoyable event without upset or injury.

When dancing

When you enter the dance floor, please do not step into the path of anyone dancing. Likewise, when your dance is finished

please move to the side of the room being careful not to step into anyone’s path.Please be aware of the space around you,

especially when stepping backwards or performing long travelling moves. Please try to help your partner avoid collisions.

Please do not try and dance moves that you have seen, but not yet been taught. You may not be aware of any potential risks

unless you have learned the move in a lesson.

You should always ask for permission from your partner before leading dips and drops. Dips and drops should be

performed with care, again giving particular consideration to the space around you. Do not execute dips and drops that you

have never been taught before.

Please do not assume your partner’s ability. Always start with some easy moves until you know the level at which to pitch the

dance. Beginners can very easily be intimidated by someone who dances complex moves with them, and your role is to

make your partner feel comfortable.

Please do not teach moves to others without the express prior consent of an iDance teacher.

When not dancing

Please do not walk across the floor while others are dancing and please avoid, at all times, walking across the dance floor

with drinks.

Please report any spillages immediately to a member of the iDance crew so they can be mopped up.

Please do not place drinks on or near speakers or other electronic equipment.

Please keep bags tucked away under the chairs, and ensure no coats are blocking pathways.

Please do not stand directly in front of or behind the fans for any length of time, as it will reduce the fan's ability to cool the

room.Please do not walk onto the stage as there will be cables that could cause a risk of tripping.

Clothing

Try to wear layers, you will warm up as the night progresses.

Avoid footwear that offers too much grip. Trainers and rubber soled shoes are usually best avoided. Leather or suede soled

shoes are preferred as they allow your feet to move across the dance floor without too much resistance.

Please avoid high heels until you are confident with your balance.

We would discourage the wearing of jewellery, especially items that could catch another dancer. Long necklaces and sharp

rings should be avoided.

Hydration

Please stay hydrated throughout your evening. Most of our venues have a licensed bar. If you choose to drink alcohol,,

please do so in moderation. Excessive alcohol consumption may result in a ban, especially if is poses a risk to other dancers

in the venue.

Hygiene

Please bring a change of top, particularly in the summer months, as you will get sweaty.Do remember to shower, brush your

teeth and wear clean clothes to ensure you are presentable. Dance is a contact activity, and your partner will thank you for

this. Also remember to wear deodorant, and wash/sanitise your hands frequently.

Safeguarding and inappropriate behaviour:

iDance operates a zero-tolerance policy towards antisocial behaviour on and off the dance floor at our events, and is fully

committed to protecting all of our dancers and promoting a happy, healthy and safe environment for everyone. Any report

of harassment such as physical, personal, sexual, psychological, third party or discriminatory will be investigated and could

result in a ban or possibly even legal prosecution.

Conduct

We ask all attendees to conduct themselves in a thoughtful, considerate and appropriate manner at all of our events.

Dancing does involve contact. Please ensure any physical connection with your partner is appropriate and considerate.

Dance the moves as they are taught, and respect people’s opinions if they ask you to avoid certain moves.

Dancing is a great place to meet people and make new friends; please do not treat it as a pick up joint. Partner dancing is

also intended to be a social activity. Please be aware that having multiple dances with the same partner may be seen as

detrimental to the social harmony of an event. It also has the potential to make that person feel unable to socialise with the

wider dance community.

Be thoughtful when speaking to others. Ask for dances politely and understand that everybody has the right to refuse. Bad

language is inconsiderate to those around you, and should be avoided.

Bullying, either physical or verbal, will not be tolerated, and could result in an immediate suspension.Please endeavour to

make your dance venue a safe and enjoyable space for all. Have the confidence to speak politely to your fellow dancers if

you are ever uncomfortable with their behaviour, always empathising that they may be unaware of what they have done or

how it may have affected you. If their behaviour persists, please speak directly to a member of crew, teacher or event

organiser present that evening. Our team are always available to help.

Please also understand you have a right to refuse any dance, however, please be considerate to the feelings of others when

your .

Do look out for your fellow dancers and speak to an organiser if you witness any inappropriate behaviour. Try to be available

to offer support to those who ask.

iDance will investigate all matters that have been reported, initially speaking to and requesting information from all parties

involved, and then making a decision. In the case of legal matters, or those which have involvement by the police, the entry

of all parties to iDance events will be temporarily suspended until a legal decision has been reached and communicated

back to iDance.

Please note that iDance is entitled at any time to refuse you admission to any iDance class or event.
