Boston Open DanceSport is open to people of any level of dancing, any age, and any sexual orientation. The Boston Open, sanctioned by NASSPDA (North America Same Sex Partner Dance Association), promotes equality, artistic, and competitive same-sex ballroom dancing.

The competition was held in Junior Ballroom, at Hynes Convention Center, downtown Boston in September, where dancers competed in single dance (Bachata, Merengue, Salsa, Hustle, Polka, Country Waltz, and Two Step), multi dance (International Style, American Style, and Argentine Tango), formation teams and the show dance division.

The same-sex couples, pro-am couples, reverse role couples (where females lead and males follow at least for 75 percent of the dance) were judged separately.

Kalin Mitov, who directed the event, said 48 couples competed before more than 350 spectators. If you missed this year's competition, don't fret — Boston will play host to those wanting to cut a rug in 2014.
