A broken toe is a common injury that most often occurs when you drop something on your foot or stub your toe.
In most cases, a broken toe can be immobilized by taping it to a neighboring toe.
So, if you're freaking out over how much space to put between you and your date, this may be the way to go.
Take one hand and place it on your date's hips or wrap your arm loosely around their waist. Stepping on your date's toes is obviously something you want to avoid when you're dancing. Look down at where you and your date's feet fall when you first join together to dance.
Then use your other hand to take their hand and hold it up and to the side with your elbow bent. This will give you a general idea of how far over you can move your feet without stepping on your date's toes.
