Code of Conduct

Participants at Slowdown deserve to feel safe, respected and valued at all times.

We welcome dancers of any gender dancing as lead or follow and we celebrate diversity. We encourage you to ask a stranger to dance, but put no obligation on dancers to accept a dance. Please decline respectfully and always consider the feelings of others on the floor.

There will be no tolerance for any physical, verbal or sexual harassment on the dance floor, in class or at any other time during the event.

For everyone’s safety please refrain from any aerials or lifts on the social dance floor. Please also avoid any uninvited feedback either in class or on the social floor.

The organisers of Slowdown reserve the right to take any action we deem appropriate to resolve any situations brought to our attention, including asking any participant to leave the event without refund.

If you feel uncomfortable at any time in class or during social dancing, please make the issue known to Shob, Cath or Andy to talk about your concerns. We commit to keeping any complaint confidential if requested.
