Many people dance in their own space, and others share their space with another. To engage in a dance with someone, use sensitivity: Are they open to sharing their space with me? Mirror movements, offer a hand, brush by, make eye contact, and see & feel how they respond...
If you'd rather not dance with someone, or are ending a dance with someone, simply thank them by placing your hands in prayer at your heart. "Namaste... Thank You. My Spirit Recognizes Yours"
