Just need to come to the ESSDA events
Or the WOGA in August, it will be taking place in Antwerp...
This is really interesting! I had no idea there was any kind of provision for same-sex couples in competitions. There's at least one girl-girl couple in the class some of my friends are in, but they're absolute beginners and I always thought that would be absent at higher levels.
When I was training for the competition that got me into dancing I joked that next time I'd be dancing with another man because there would be fewer arguments, but in reality I'm not sure I'd want to. He'd definitely have to follow - there's no way I'm good enough to do anything but lead.
If you are interested in checking it out, a big comp will be taking place next Saturday in London ("Pink Jukebox Trophy"). Usually there are some amazing couples competing in this one.
I've just Googled that - thank you.
I sometimes see this in a dance lesson, even in dance party (in VN), in case there's not equivalent between male and female partners. Usually, female and female made a couple. Another reason is the shyness of female who've just learned dancing, especially for an asian girl.
For other cases, male-male couple, I've no experienced, so that got no idea
I competed last year in a female-female couple and it worked out fantastically once we got over the attitude of rumba I also recall seeing a fantastic male-male couple last year at MIT.
OMG...the male-male latin couples at this comp I went to were to die for. There was also a couple from Boston who did all four styles, if I recall correctly, and they were just wonderful. There was also a gorgeous female-female standard couple.
One of my dreams is to follow Gold/Open Rhythm or Latin in competition. And nail it. If there are any leaders around the Boston/NYC area willing to indulge me ...
