What are the thoughts towards female leads at Herrang?
I've never been to Herrang, or danced much outside of my home community, so I am not sure how others feel towards female leads. At home, I dance both lead and follow because we are short of leads (male leads in particular). Thus, gender roles have become obsolete. I'm not sure if the wider swing dance community shares this view and I'm curious to see how others feel. While I am currently on the waitlist as a follow, I am debating signing up as a lead (no waitlist). I would be wary, however, of becoming "that girl" who leads and then never get to follow. I love dancing both roles and hope to improve both while at camp.
How do you feel about female leads? I'm curious to hear opinions from both leads and follows.
