BALLROOM TRAILBLAZERS

The Hamilton Spectator - - FRONT PAGE -

Jeff Fox, left, and Trevor Copp are chal­leng­ing the tra­di­tional gen­der roles en­trenched in ballroom danc­ing. The lo­cal per­form­ers, who have a TED Talk, show off their moves at Glendale Sec­ondary School in east Hamil­ton on Tues­day.

Jeff Fox takes Glendale stu­dents through an ex­plo­ration of non-tra­di­tional ballroom danc­ing at the east-end school Tues­day. Fox and his dance part­ner, Trevor Copp, also demon­strated the Liq­uid Lead, which does away with tra­di­tional gen­der roles by en­cour­ag­ing both part­ners to take the lead, not just the male dancer, which is the case in con­ven­tional ballroom danc­ing.
