Milestone for same-sex dancing in New Zealand!

Congratulations to the New Zealand Ballroom Dance Council, which has changed its rules so that "A couple of the same gender can dance in any event in New Zealand". This is a great step forward for equality and all the more reason to get involved in same-sex dancing.
