|leisure = dance|
|A dance venue or dance hall.|
|Used on these elements|
|Tools for this tag|
Begin by tagging an area or a node with
|leisure=dance||A reasonably well-maintained dance floor is available on a regular basis. If shared with other activities, dancing is the primary leisure=* function of this venue.|
You can also place a node tagged as above inside large building areas or complexes to indicate the presence of a dance floor somewhere within: useful for places that offer dancing in a similar way to a custom-built dance hall on certain nights of the week.
To further describe the sort of dance sessions on offer, whether lessons can be obtained etc. use the following:
|dance:teaching||boolean (yes/no)||no||Dancers can obtain tuition.|
|dance:style||Values from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dance_style_categories||No assumed value||Semicolon-separated list of dance styles, e.g. "modern_jive;lindy_hop". Might be a good idea to lowercase and underscore_separate for consistency.|
Other uses of the
dance:* namespace are encouraged. Please document what you do here.
Many venues (in the UK, at least) put on activities other than social dancing or dance classes, so combinations will happen in practice.
|building=*||Typically either "yes" or something describing the sort of building the dance floor is in.|
|name=*||Name of the venue.|
|amenity=music_venue||The venue also plays live music on some nights.|
|amenity=*||The amenity namespace doesn't clash, so it can be mixed in freely.|
If you do get a clash with some other leisure=* use, use separate nodes and ideally place the leisure=dance node in roughly the centre of the dance floor within the area representing the building. Try not to be too fussy about it, just get the information in there.
