PROVO, Utah – For the first time, same-sex couples will be allowed to compete in the annual ballroom dance competition at Brigham Young University.
The university has hosted the U.S. National Amateur Dancesport Championships for more than 20 years.
The change comes as the National Dance Council of America has changed its rules, allowing for same-sex couples.
BYU was originally exempt from the new rules, but that changed when the council was threatened with a lawsuit.
