Without offending a bunch of dancers, your chance of getting that much room on a real dance floor are zero.

Fabulous dance. Very interesting take on a polka. And as for needing a lot of room ????? That’s rubbish. Any good dancers use what floor space they have they!!!!!

Fabulous dance, feels so good to do, and as you are all moving together it doesn't need as much space as you might think!
