You can come dance with *us* any time. The SCD class I dance with
varies as to composition enough that there are times when we have more
women than men, times when we have more men than women, and (rarely)
times when we have equal numbers of each. This happens often enough
that nearly everyone who is an experienced dancer is comfortable with
switching sides. In fact, we've had occasions when a pair of women
elected to dance together, leaving some men with only other men to
choose from for partners - which they happily did (no request to "split
up" the pair of ladies).
