The United Kingdom Same Sex Dance Council (UKSSDC) was first founded in May 2006. The primary aim of the Council is to represent the interests of same-sex dancers in the UK, as well as their trainers, the adjudicators, and competition organisers on a worldwide basis. This has included setting out the framework of rules for Same-Sex competitions, which are currently adopted by UK Same sex competition organisers.
Today, the Council continues its campaign to increase the awareness of and participation in same-sex dance competitions. This includes offering a network of advice, providing a directory of all of the same-sex competitions, as well as offering a partner search facility so that anyone who wishes to begin their journey in same-sex competitive dancing.
