Youth Dance Guidelines & Etiquette

Appropriate Dress
  • Be neat, clean, modest, and appropriate in your clothing and grooming.

  • For casual dress dances, this generally means nice shirt and nice pants, but refer to the regional website for additional information.

  • For Sunday dress dances, wear clothing that you would wear when attending Sacrament services.


“The scriptures compare our bodies to a holy temple, a place where the Spirit can dwell….. Avoid (dress) styles that emphasize or draw inappropriate attention to your physical body instead of who you are as a child of God with an eternal future. Let moral cleanliness and love for God guide your choices. (FSY: Your Body is Sacred)

Dance Etiquette  

  • Try out appropriate new moves and steps—especially the dances you have learned at FSY! 

  • Politely ask many to dance and take the opportunity to get to know someone new.

  • Graciously consider each invitation to dance.

  • Engage in conversation that allows you to get to know your partner. 

  • Have fun and smile! 

Avoid the Following

  • Full-body contact (such as bear hugging)
