Ok so why not? It meets all requirements to be considered a sport. "an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature". Dance includes skill, physical activity, competitions, and technique. Dancers put themselves through long hours of training, pain, blisters, hard work all for somebody like you to just sit here and belittle their sport. You don't have any evidence of it not being one, your pride just wont let you admit it. You're too hung up on this thing that only baseball, soccer, football, basketball is a sport. When you hear dancer you picture a little girl in a tutu twirling on one foot doing nothing but giggling and fluffing her tutu, but that is not what dance is at all. I recently walked into an under armor store and they were advertising active wear with a picture of a dancer on pointe shoes. I think you get my "pointe" now and I'm afraid that you have lost.
