Ballroom Dancing is officially recognised as a sport. When the IDSF tied us to the IOC (International Olympic Committee } I wonder if they ever believed that Ballroom dancing would ever be an Olyimpic Sport. There are to many obsticles in the way. One is. Can a South African born, dancing for Germany with a German partner ever represent Germany. Or could they both represent South Africa. There are so many mixed partnerships. We have Americans dancing with Russians. English with Australian and so on. It is never going to work. In some countries we have representing that country couples of which neither of them were born in that country. To be continued, I`m sure.
