While we here at Arizona Ballroom Champions support all types of dance partners, same-sex ballroom dancing hasn't always been accepted.
In 2014, for example, members of the British Dance Council considered changing their rules to define a partnership as "one man and one woman" for all amateur and professional competitions.
Why? We don't know. All we know is that they must not have been able to predict how beautifully artistic and passionate the dramatic Dancing With The Stars routine set to the tantalizing opera Carmen would be four years later.
