Re: Is dance a sport? Posted by Serendipidy 2/1/2008 11:03:00 PM
Dr Elle. Its impossible to answer question. Take Figure Skating, its a sport and yet Ballet isn`t. They both move to music. They both interpret the music and also they both act. With the Skating I have in mind the Pair Skaters featured in, " Andre Rieu in Vienna ", skating and acting to the theme from the Titanic My Heart will go On. In some countries because dancing is classed as a sport they have access to their various Institutes of Sport and have done for years. Then there is local funding for Ballroom Dancing on an equall to Soccer or Baseball or Athletics and so on.
