For the first time in the program’s history, a two-man dancing couple competes. Halldorsen believes that it is important that “Skal vi danse” represents diversity in society.
“Do we dance” should be more than “just” an entertainment programme, we also want to represent diversity and pave the way for tolerance, she says.
– I can’t believe I agree with that! I’ve always dreamed of participating in Shall We Dance, and I had an even bigger dream of being allowed to dance with a guy, and Benjamin is the perfect dance partner, says Joachim Klevin who will be dancing with Benjamin Jaiacody, according to TV 2s press release.
