Alexander Bryan and Adam Francis - a dynamic dancing duo

Those of us who take any interest in dancing at all expect dancing couples to be of men and women.  But what if both partners are of the same gender, how does that work?  The results can be startling - and very lively!  In the video clip below Alex and Adam give viewers a compelling demonstration.  
   


Both dancers are highly accomplished in conventional ballroom and Latin dancing both as dancers and instructors.
     I had the good fortune to see them on satellite television last evening in what appears to have been the 2010 series of the  Australian Strictly Dancing competition.  They certainly were very watchable.  
     From what I can understand of the competition results they came second overall, a considerable achievement given the rigours of dance competition judging and a style of dancing that falls outside the usual range of interpretation. 
     I'm puzzled that this has not screened in New Zealand, as it includes couples from here as well as Australia, especially in last years absence of the very popular local series of "Dancing with the Stars" which was axed due to funding cuts.  Come on, TVNZ!
