Avoid aerials on the social dance floor. Never do aerials on a crowded social dance floor. Aerials should be reserved for performances, dance jams, or when you are the only couple on the floor. Many dancers are hurt by either being part of an aerial, or by having been to close to those who were performing an aerial.
     While they may look "cool,'' the execution of aerials requires training by a qualified instructor. Don't do them by yourself unless you are trained.
