  • What about competitive dance

    Because if u do do completive dance you are dance up against other people.And when u go up against other people its like u are playing u against team b and if u get a higher score than team b then u win thats what u do when u compete. Like in soccer u go up against others also football,volleyball,and another sport.And dance is not all about the fancy costumes its about learning how to balance and most important having fun.And FOOTBALL PLAYERS TAKE DANCE TO IMPROVE THERE BALANCE.So without ballet there where would your fav football players would be today NOWHERE.So just think about it without dance football would SUCK.And we dancers can do better than all of u at dance we can split,kick high,turn,and do a ton more.Sorry if i got so into this its just dance is my life and i hate when people say dance is not a sport well when u compete like me u go up against other like another sport so yeah thats all i have to say about that.

  • Physical exertion, sport it is

    The dictionary clearly states that every sport needs physical activity. If you look up the definition of dance, it also states that dancing requires physical activity, like exercise, balance, flexibility, etc, like gymnastics. So, if gymnastics is in the olympics and it is considered a sport, dancing is too, officially.

  • Of course it is.

    Dancing takes as much of EVEN MORE energy than football of any other sport. It is so healthy for you. PEOPLE ARE LIKE WELL DANCE IS NOW A SPORT

    yes it is

    So for anyone out there that thinks that dance is not a sport they are wrong! Think of really good dancers like Sophia Lucia or Maddie Ziegler er something, think of how hard they train to dance. Its hard

  • It is a sport

    I'm a dancer and I've been doing it since I was seven. The definition of a sport is "an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment." Dance you work either by yourself or with a group to preform and compete against other teams or other dancers. Dance is a skill and it requires physical exertion. If you say dance is not a sport then really what is? Dance fits the definition of a sport and should be treated as that.

  • Dancing is a Sport

    Dancing is an art that goes to competition just like any other sport so therefore dancing is a sport because football is competitive and so is dance so for all who think it's not it is your wrong I'm right. Thank you for be living dance is a sport that is competitive.

  • Dancing is a sport

    I am supporting this argument as I know that dance is a sport because I do dance and it is a regular sport in competitions people think it is an activity just because people think it is a fun game or something like that so I hope everyone supports my issue

  • Dance is a sport

    You have to be flexible strong have stamina and love for what your doing. I am a dancer and just because sports involve competing doesn't mean dancing doesn't! Dance has it's own competetions and I think well not think I know that we dancers work our but offs doing what we love to do.

  • Yes it is

    Dancing is a sport because it is physical education. It tires you put as every other sport does, it doesn't matter about the fantasy costume like every other sport is in muddy clothes. Maybe to some people dancing is a art, but I think it is a sport because if you try to do anything dancers do you will practically die, I have been dancing for ages now and even I find it hard sometimes to even breathe. Xx

  • Yes dancing is a sport

    Dancing is a sport because it involves movement and skill and people who say it is not a sport is wrong and stupid but the people who say yes is amazing and cool so good job and I like you so you people who say no think again and answer yes

  • No, a competition but not a sport

    All sports are competitions, but not all competitions are sports. Dancing can be a competition. It certainly involves physical movement, but so does darts, bowling, etc. They involve moving and point scoring, but can they be called sports? No. In a competition there is a goal or action that is scored, scores are compared between competitors, but there is no direct physical interaction between competitors that could be described as offense and defense. There would certainly be some competitions that fall into a gray area between competition and sport. Some racing events are largely without offense and defense except perhaps at key moments like along turns, and coasting behind the lead runner or lead car. But things like soccer, baseball, football, tennis, etc that contain offensive and defensive aspects fall into what I consider sports.

  • Its not a sport deal with it

    Its an activity because there is no ball involved. All sports have balls involved. Plus, its not considered a sport in school because in my high school you can only sign up for one sport each sport season and there are people who do dancing and a sport. Plus, the dance you are doing on stage is already planned, you know what is going to happen. In a real sport the chances are endless and you have no idea what to expect. That is why dancing is not a sport.

  • What sport has fancy costumes

    What sport has fancy costumes? Dancing isn't a sport becaus it's not very hard exercise. The hard spurts of exercise don't last very long and dancers are known to become anorexic. What sport has fancy costumes? If you were ment to swet you wouldn't have on some glittery tights on. Also it's a false spence of a sport when you need to use real sports skills in gym class you'd be in for a rood awakening.

  • Do you ever see dancing at the Olympics

    Dancing is not something that is a sport it Is more of an energetic hobby that you do even though you usually pay to go it is not as if you have special shoes for hip hop dancing or anything and I mean think about it. JUST THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dancers get more than enough credit as it is

    Dancers already get credit for being graceful and beautiful and getting years of difficult training. None of witch are easy. Athleticism wise, it is not a sport. Because what people do in dance may not be much help to an athletic body with the exception of flexibility. Methiods used in dancing are not used in any sports. Yes, I know you may gain some mucle but the gaining of mucle is not even close to the mucle you gain in a sport for example: swimming

  • Not a sport

    Just because you have to work hard doesn't make it a sport. Sports don't have judges, they have coaches. Sports have tryouts, not auditions. Sports teams don't spend time with makeup and hair. Sports teams have fields or arenas, not theaters or studios. Sports don't have costumes, they have jerseys . Yes in dance and sports you have to be physically fit and mentally strong, you have to practice multiple times a week and there are competitions for both. And you cant say that whoever says its not a sport is wrong, dance wasnt intended for it to be competitive in the first place either, it was supposed to be traditional an a eay of expressing yourself through movement. (by the way, yes i know how hard it is i did dance for 8 years) Dance Isnt a sport it is an art, and I don't understand why people won't accept that dance is special in its own way

  • No it is not.

    Dancing is not a sport! You can't get stats, and dance is more like an art all over the world.
    For the people who think it is a sport should think about what is different in a sport and dancing, in dancing you do get judged but you can not get any points relative to sports. In sports like football or soccer, they do get statism for their effort in playing the game.

  • Dancing just isn't a sport.

    I agree that it requires skill and training and there is competition, but it's just not a sport. In sports, there is no routine or something you have to memorize. You just do it and make decisions on the spot. For example, in soccer, you get the ball and you make a decision. You don't know what is really going to happen next. I know in dance, you sometimes have to make a routine on the spot, but it is still a ROUTINE. And anyone can dance. It can be taught and learned with the right amount of training. For instance, if you don't know how to figure the beat, someone can teach it to you. But in sports such as basketball or soccer or volleyball, some people are born with it. That's why some people are amazingly good. Also, there is no goal in dance. By that I mean when you dance, you don't think of winning. You just try to perform and do your best. That's why sports is a SPORT. You have a goal and that's winning. I am a soccer player and a volleyball player, plus a competitive dancer.

  • No way Jose

    A sport is always competitive and you are always required to try and out wit your opponent whereas in dancing you can just do it by your self without having to think about trying to beat somebody else. Personally, I count dancing as an Art, not a sport. But that is just my opinion, however my opinion is obviously correct ;-)

  • It is not a sport!!!

    If you are that passionate about dancing then you should know that it is an art! They also do not have it in the Olympics therefore its not a sport. Finally they do not work as hard as gymnasts (like me😆) and they wear preety tutus, athletes don't wear tutus!!
