    I have seen many gender switching dance. It's awesome!

    Yes that is true! And I had it in my mind when I decided to change my dance role.
    I considered myself as a vandal, breaking down existing social structures for my private pleasure. I think this mindset made me actually more flexible and I accepted the resistance and other opinions.

    Only thing I asked for was some social space to dance in my way - I did NOT ask the others to change their habits, not even change their minds, but just allow me some extra space.

    The transition took only a few months and I have never been seriously attacked for my dance role change. The issues on the way have had other grounds.
