The competition will proceed by the rules of the dancesport organization governing such ballroom dance competitions- North American Same Sex Partner Dance Association (NASSPDA).

The Championship is the only same-sex ballroom dance contest in New England. After its first annual event “Boston Open Dancesport” in 2013 NASSPDA Executive Board had awarded us the privilege Boston to host the 2014 North American Championship.

This event will benefit the general population- 18 years old and above; man, woman and transgender. It is open to everybody especially supporting the LGBTQ community. One of the main goals is to introduce ballroom dancing as an outlet, a safe environment and an alternative pro-social event for the young LGBTQ. Such event is teaching them about partnership, understanding, tolerance, and responsibility not only on the dance floor but in life.[pullquote] This event will benefit the general population- 18 years old and above; man, woman and transgender.
