Scents and Personal Hygiene

Sensitivities to a wide variety of scents do vary, and we are often not aware of scents on clothing we are ourselves wearing — remember that these scents can linger on garments. The nature of our sport is that it requires close proximity and contact with others to work well, so please be particularly aware of this if you use scented products, or if you are a smoker. If possible, take the time to change to recently laundered clothes before you come dancing. And remember that good personal and oral hygiene is a simple way to show respect for other dancers.
