I danced in both places, and didn't hear anything of
the sort.  In fact, it's kind of disappointing to hear
that kind of commentary, since, in essence, you're
being harmful to potential dancers which could find
itself on par or even above you, some day.  It makes
little sense to cut it off at root.

I don't even look at the person's garb until I've
walked them out on the floor.  I usually look for
someone sitting in the back, maybe with friends, maybe
alone, who might want to dance.  I guess it's the
anti-wallflowerite in me.  =)
