"The etiquette of dancing follows what should be common practice in life. In all things show honor to the other dancers. Gentlemen, it is your part to lead and to take initiative. It is your part to ask the lady for the dance, to see that all the ladies that want to dance get to, to pay special attention to instructions, so that you may lead during the dance, and to lead the lady off the floor after it is done. Ladies, it is your part to follow and to support. It is your part to wait to be asked, to pay attention to the instructions as well, so that you may follow better, and support when your partner fails (yes, when, not if).

We have much to be joyful for. We have life and health, family and friends, art and music. We have been saved and loved by God. Let us not be the people that it is said of “We played the flute for you, and you did not dance” (Matt. 11:17). No, instead, “This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24) This is the time to dance!"
