What is "Ambidancetrous?"
In swing dancing we typically teach people to dance one of two roles: Leader or Follower. Being ambidancetrous means knowing how to dance both roles! Some people who are ambidancetrous also enjoy switch dancing, where they fluidly swap roles with their partner in a single dance. The Switch is a Lindy Hop workshop event held in San Francisco, California that celebrates breaking down gender boundaries in dance and emphasizing a space where everyone can freely choose which role or roles they want to dance.
