I do not believe dancing is a sport. My reasoning behind this is the way that this "activity" is judged. A sport is simple, and the winner is determined by facts, such as a score. In the example of golfing, the amount of shots it takes you to get the ball in the hole determines the winner. Same goes for tennis, swimming, and other non contact sports. Now dance is not a sport because there are no definite facts that determine a winner. Judges choose the winner and loser. The winner does not win by a scoreboard (although i understand there is scoring), but wins by the opinion of a judge. I stress the fact that there are judges needed to score, and judges are people who can have separate opinions. A dancer could receive one score from one judge and a different score from a different judge. Which is exactly why there are usually a panel of judges.
