How To Cut In At A Dance

If a gentlemen would like to dance with a lady who is already dancing with another man, he may cut in by approaching the dancing couple, tapping the man on the shoulder, and asking, “May I cut in?”

It is inappropriate for either member of the dancing pair to refuse the request to cut in.  If the first gentlemen would like to dance with the lady again, he must wait until the next dance to ask her or cut in.
