This looks like big fun. I've always wanted to learn how to ballroom dance. Getting dressed up and attending the Lambda Ball was a big thrill for me. I love when people design these things for same sex couples so that folks can be comfortable. I'd posit that a mixed-couple session should be the way to go, but it can be hard enough to learn a new skill and be self-conscious about that without adding in the "why are those two women dancing together?" vibe. Plus, it really gets old explaining who is the man in the relationship.
However, the fact that this company recognizes a niche market promises well for the future of mixed orientation ballroom dancing events in Pittsburgh. And that, my friends, is a good sign.
