Same-sex dance ban plan sparks row

11 July 2014 Last updated at 22:35 BST

Dance organisers are considering banning same-sex couples from some ballroom dancing competitions.

It is claimed all-male partnerships are two steps ahead of their mixed counterparts because they're physically stronger.

The British Dance Council denied it was banning same-sex couples from competing, but said it wanted to "regulate the situation".

BBC's David Sillito caught up with some lunchtime dancers.
