Dance Conduct Print

The Harvest Moon Folk Society is organized to promote contra dancing as a high-spirited dance that can be elegant, lively and most importantly, fun! Our organization endeavors to ensure that everyone has fun and feels safe in our environment, and we teach and promote appropriate and safe dancing styles.

Inappropriate behavior could entail rough dancing, or dancing in such a way that make other dancers feel physically challenged or threatened. Inappropriate behavior is behavior that constitutes harassment of any kind. If a fellow dancer does anything to you that you deem offensive or inappropriate, it is suggested that you make an effort to let that person know. If you cannot tell them during the dance, then try to do so afterwards. If you are not comfortable speaking directly with the person who has behaved in a way you feel is inappropriate, contact any of the  dance organizers or board members. Dancers who repeatedly exhibit offensive or inappropriate behavior will be asked to leave.
