There are few more-effective forms of grass roots lgbt activism than
same-gender couples who really know what they're doing
Out On The Dance Floor!!
No same-gender couple dancing in a non-lgbt social environment ever needs to even 'ask' for aknowledgement; even by the most ardent anti-lgbt individuals in the room, because if you know what you're doing, and you can switch lead and follow roles at the drop of a hat (because it's not a boy-lead/girl-follow world that we live in and 'that's what we do!'), you will have EVERY EYE IN THE HOUSE UPON YOU!! ...even those who are ALSO DANCING will have a difficult time ignoring you. And from the past experiences of some of us who've tried it, the respect and amazement (and sudden welcoming attitudes) that you get for this unheard-of talent is unending. We are grassroots lgbt activists, not in the courtrooms or at the ends of picket signs, but changing minds and opinions and gaining respect and acceptance Out On The Dance Floor!!

Consequently, once again ....

We want YOU!!...

Showdance (show category for individual couples)

Formation Team (show category for teams of couples or individuals)

Participation

Each dancer is expected to enter the division and category that most closely fits his or her actual skill level. To achieve a fair contest, equally leveled couples must compete together in the same division, category and level. There are no pre-determined classes in same-sex competitions. Grading rounds are required for the International style, American style, and Argentine Tango divisions before the competition rounds of multi-dance graded categories. The purpose of grading rounds, also called “separation rounds” or “classification rounds,” is to group all couples of the same average level/quality in the same class.

A participant's age is determined by that persons' age as of the first day of the Games, 9 August 2014.

If one category has more than 8 couples or teams entered/registered, elimination rounds will be held.

Required dances per Category:

International Style Division

American Style Division

Country Western Style Division

Line Dance Division

Argentine Tango Division

Medals will be awarded to the top three couples/teams in each division’s category and class level.

 

Mixed Gender Division

Participation is to couples consisting of one man and one woman.  Either partner can lead or follow for the entire dance or the couple can switch lead and follow either between dances or mid-dance. The events will not be graded so there will be no grading rounds scheduled. The events will not be age restricted, and couples of any level can enter. Otherwise all other NASSPDA competition rules are applicable. Participating couples are expected to dance all 3 dances in each category as follows (these dances corresponds to the dances in the "C" level of each dance style):

International and American Style Division Rules

The competition rules of the North American Same-Sex Partner Dance Association (NASSPDA), the sanctioning organization, will govern the International and American Style divisions. The rules of competition through NASSPDA can be found here.

Highlights of these rules are:

Country Western Style and Line Dance Division Rules

The Country Western and Line Dance Divisions will be governed by the rules of the International Association of Gay/Lesbian Country Western Dance Clubs (IAGLCWDC). The rules of competition through IAGLCWDC can be found here.

Highlights of these rules are:

Photo of same-sex dancers-Robert Cortland It Gets Better - Same-Sex Partner Dance Community
by Robert Cortlandt
http://vimeo.com/20529798 [VIDEO]

One of the worst parts about being an LGBT youth is the isolation one can feel – typically, that no one else is like you, you are alone in hostile territory, and there is nothing ahead of you but more of the same. Knowing that there is a proud community of like-minded individuals that are warm and welcoming might be the thread that helps a struggling teenager hang on.

The same-sex partner dance community is that community! We wanted to let others know that we will include them, that they are welcome among us, and that we embrace, celebrate and honor each individual.

We are proof that you are not alone, that yes, it does indeed get better.

Partner dancing for same-gender couples can be on of 'THE' most effective forms of grass roots lgbt activism available to us today. We know that because we have proof of it Out On The Dance Floor!! (click here)
And just as importantly, you meet a lot of great new friends and IT'S FUN!!

New classes for lgbt Ballroom, Latin, C/W, Tango and Swing dancers coming soon so check back.

**********************************

A book selection that EVERYONE should read with "No Excuses".

Faced with impossible challenges, Kyle Maynard lives life with no excuses. He was born a congenital amputee, his arms ending at his elbows and his legs at his knees. But that didn't stop him from becoming a champion, on the wrestling mat and in his life. "No Excuses" is the inspiring story of Kyle Maynard's battle against the odds. With help from the family who supported him, the coach who trained him and the faith that strengthened him to face the toughest fights, Kyle faced the seemingly impossible challenge to live a normal life—and won a phenomenal victory in the process. (So please don't come to class telling me what you "can't" do...I want to hear everyone repeating over and over again what they CAN do!...)

(Lambda DanceSPORT DC and DC Rawhide Fridays

“Lambda DanceSPORT DC”
training and practice is now available on Sundays for social dancing or those interested in training for and attending
World OutGames and Gay Games, either as competitors OR as attending spectators.

No previous dance experience is necessary, so please don’t hesitate. Most of those competing will be in the beginner levels and will not be competing against the more advanced dancers. The objective is to encourage participation, regardless of your level and wheter or not you intend to compete. Either way, you'll want to prepare ahead of time for dancing with the hundreds of Ballroom, Latin, Swing & Country/Western dancers during the many social balls and events associated with these major LGBT dance phe·nom·e·na.
Fund-raising dance events will be organized over the next year to help cover expenses for those who participate (both as competitors and spectators) and may also include joint fund-raisers with the "DC Council of Sport's" (Team DC), as well as joint events with other individual teams that will be attending these two unprecedented North American sports events.

Oscar-nominated Heath Ledger
1979 - 2008
So many of us are truly devastated by this incredible loss. Never before have two actors on their way to the top of their game accepted the challenges and potential repercussions of playing gay characters in such honest and revealing roles as Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhall did in 'Brokeback Mountain'. And in in the process never before have two actors been so incredibly successful in portraying the true plight that so many in the LGBT community have endured throughout their lives, while bringing that plight to the awareness of mainstream America in such a uniquely beautiful and touching love story. The talents of this gifted actor through this classic motion picture performance and others will continue to be remembered and missed by us all.

During the January 28th, 2008 SAG Awards ceremony, the amazingly gracious, talented and selfless Best Actor winner Daniel Day-Lewis (for 'There Will Be Blood') unexpectedly dedicated his award to Heath Ledger, noting that "His performance in 'Brokeback Mountain' was perfect". Day-Lewis later noted that while he had never actually met Ledger, his death was all that he could think about for the past few days. His dedication speech can be viewed below.
