Plateau, Dance Floor, Dance Hall
While a dance location can be a location in which you dance, this word actually means landing (as in, a landing between two flights of stairs on a staircase) or plateau (as in, for example, a plateauing economy) most of the time.
While the meaning has changed over time to mostly refer to landings on staircases, it can still be used to mean dance hall or dance floor, although loanwords like ダンスホール are more commonly used these days.
You know all the readings for this vocab already, just make sure to use the kun'yomi ones!
If you’re looking for Chris, we just passed each other on the stair landing.
The current situation could be likened to a plateau in the economy, I suppose.
