I believe dance can be a sport. It depends on the level of dancing. Social dancing - no. But for competitive dancing, we go into training physically and mentally, we spend all our time and money, we seek out the best coaches in the world, and we get as technical as 'inside edge of right toe'. The best in the world start training as children, and spend a good part of their lives striving to be Number One. I call that an athlete, which would make Ballroom Dancing a sport.
