Being a lady that often dances with other ladies I'd like to put my 2 cents
into what, at this point appears to be a man dominated discussion (not that
I haven't enjoyed the thread :-)
Consideration is always the first and best rule of thumb. I do consider it
barging if it is presumed that "Of COURSE these ladies would rather dance
with MEN" I would far rather dance with a woman who dances well and is good
company than a man, simply because he is a man. It is okay to ask if we are
willing to split up, but it is NOT okay to take offence or make comments if
we refuse. There have been functions here where there were two men left
over, and they appeared unwilling to dance with each other. The MC requested
if there were any two lady couples that would be will to do these men the
honor of splitting up and dancing with them. There is usually no dearth of
However two man couples shouldn't be an issue anymore than a two lady
couple, they are just less common. We just have to be sympathetic to the
poor blokes that feeled threatened, We're just dancing after all!
