Lee Fox / Board Member 2010 to Present
How are you actively and currently involved in same sex ballroom dance?
I've competed in the Gay Games in 1998 and 2002. I judged same sex country dancing at the Gay Games in 2006 and the Out Games in 2006 and 2009. I judged at the 5boro Competition in 2007, the Orlando competition in 2008, the April Follies in 2010, 2012, & 2013, and the Boston Open in 2013. I have also competed and judged several same sex country events for the International Association of Gay/Lesbian Country Western Dance Clubs (IAGLCWDC). I have been teaching same sex country dancing in Fort Lauderdale regularly since 1993 and have coached same sex couples preparing for competition. I have also choreographed for formation teams over the past 20 years.
What relevant leadership experience, such as serving on a board of a membership driven or non-profit organization and/or experience in helping to create such an organization, do you have?
I am president of the National DanceTeachers Association having served for over 13 years. I am a delegate and serve on the Championship Criteria and Invigilation Committees for the National Dance Council of America. I was the Director of Dance for IAGLCWDC for over 10 years and am now the Competition Director for IAGLCWDC. I chaired the committee that put together the rules and regulations and the format of the competitions IAGLCWDC runs yearly and the rules that were adopted by the Gay Games and the Out Games for their country western competitions. I was chair of Southern Country South Florida for 10 years.
