Massachusetts is home to one of ballroom dancing’s most lauded same-sex partner dance couples. Yet the Bay State has yet to host a competition.
That changes later this month.
You may have seen them last summer, gliding, turning, stepping, snapping around the streets of Provincetown.
Kalin Mitov and Michael Winward are North American Same-sex Partner Dance Association champions.
They have danced to critical acclaim in competitions across the country and all over the world. And now Mitov thinks it is time to bring a sanctioned competition to the dance partners’ home state of Massachusetts.
On Saturday, September 21, at the Hynes Convention Center, New Englanders will be able to witness some of the most beautiful ballroom dancing on the planet.
