I think Dance Is not a sport because it does not include a ball or board. Plus if you look it up google it says it isn't

Well first it depends on what type of dance we are talking about. Dance is like martial arts in that it can easily become art more than sport. I don't consider the nutcracker to be a sport. More "cultural" forms of dance are art not sport.

That said most dance I do consider a sport. Sports fundamentally come down to 2 or more parties competing in some way that involves physical effort where the outcomes of one depend on the outcomes of the other.

In a dance battle this clearly fits seeing as two people are moving and if one does better the other need do worse.

But even in a more club setting this can be seen. If one guy is able to use his sexy moves better he is more likely to end up with the girl at the end of the night then the other guy who doesn't.
