"Dann beschreiben Sie ihrem Partner die Wohnung"

Whenever you intend to use the word, dann in your phrases, must you always place it at the beginning then? How about between Sie and Ihrem?

Thank you

    You can put dann between Sie und Ihrem as well. However I would assume that because of the positioning at the beginning of the sentence (= emphasis) beschreiben is part of a series of actions.
    Also, if you were to put dann between Sie und Ihrem, the phrase could be (mis)construed as an imperative. Granted, the same holds true for the first sentence, but since there is no exclamation mark the meaning should be clear.
