One thing I love about social dancing is that you can dance with anybody.  The thing I hate about social dancing is that you can dance with anybody. lol.

Meaning, in a social setting, there are plenty of opportunities for awkwardness, especially when it comes to the etiquette of asking for dances, which IMV varies from dance to dance and from area to area.  It's a minefield, especially if you don't want to/can't dance when asked.  And IME, its even more awkward when you have to turn down a dance.

What kinds of things do you do to minimize the awkward moments?  Yes. Sudden bathroom breaks count. lol  Or does the social scene where you are sort of take care of itself (thinking of ee's dance scene where it's just known that there are certain people you don't ask.)

Thoughts?
