    Suffering an accident while ballroom dancing

    Ballroom dancing may be thought of as a sedate activity, but anyone who actually does it will know how complicated it can be. A great deal of fancy footwork is involved in some dances, which means that there is always a risk of feet getting trodden on – potentially a serious problem if your partner is wearing stiletto heels. When women dance the tango they place their safety entirely in the hands of their partners and if those partners are careless, or don’t know what they are doing, serious back injuries can result. When multiple couples are on the dance floor, the presence of unskilled dancers means that sometimes people will crash into each other or trip over one another’s gowns. Other hazards are caused by things such as drinks being spilled on the dance floor.

    The actions of an individual dancer could be responsible for an accident while ballroom dancing. In a dance class, however, a dancing instructor could be held legally responsible if an injury results from people doing things under his tuition for which they are not ready. Problems with the condition of the dance floor, meanwhile, are usually the responsibility of the venue. If you are not sure what applies in your situation, call our team and they can advise you.
