We were dancing this at a weekend, and the sets were reasonably crowded.
As it was, I didn't feel like we were coming dangerously close.  With
inexperienced dancers, I suspect that it would take up rather more room.
As it was, I was doing a fair bit of role switching with my partner, many
of those switches on the pivots, which probably meant we were taking up a
bit more space.  Nonetheless, I never felt like I was too close to the
other gent.  As long as people balance in, *and out*, I think it would be
pretty safe and wouldn't take up significantly more space than a regular
petronella.
