This is, unfortunately, one of the more common breaches of dance etiquette.
This often happens when a dancer stops in the middle of a song to correct his or her partner, or tell him/her how to execute a dance move. Ironically, this error is often committed by individuals who are not fit to teach!
Experienced social dancers dance at the level of their partners. Even for experienced dancers, the social dance floor is not the place to teach or to correct your partner. It is better to concentrate on moves that both partners can do and enjoy.
Unsolicited teaching can be humiliating and takes the fun out of dancing.
