You need insurance because it protects you from financial loss. What happens if you have a property loss, such as a broken water pipe that ruins your dance floor, or a liability loss, such as when a dancer is injured and sues you for negligence?
If you don't have dance insurance, you have to pay for losses out of your own pocket. Paying to replace a floor is bad enough, but paying for a liability loss is even more expensive. You'd have to pay for a lawyer, and if you lost the case, the damages. Liability cases can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, so it's crucial to have liability insurance.
