Last weekend my friend invited me to this new ballroom dance competition held here in NY: the 5-Boro Challenge, a competition for same-sex ballroom dance couples. I couldn’t go and now I’m kicking myself because it looks like it was a total blast. And, it got a write-up in the City section of this Sunday’s New York Times!
I can’t seem to find a link to the Times — they don’t seem to have their City section online. But if you’re in the New York area, look for the article in hard copy at your local newsstand (Edit: Jennifer found the link – it’s here — thanks Jen!) And, read about the Challenge at the above link. Also, I am told that this photographer was at the event — it doesn’t look like she has pics up yet from the 5-Boro, but she has some other great photos from Hungary, where there is apparently the largest same-sex ballroom dancing comp in the world!
Here’s a picture my friend sent me of some of the lovely ladies who participated:
