Re: DanceSport Olympics Poll Posted by Laura 10/4/2004 5:41:00 PM
There was a period of time in 1999-2000 when there was a good deal of dancesport on TV in the US. There were shows on NBC, A&E, Bravo, Lifetime, and ESPN. Unfortunately, the ratings for these were not good enough to keep advertisers interested in continuing to support such shows.
A few weeks ago the IOC made a ruling on what sports are being considered to be added in 2012, and dancesport did not make the short list. So, the earliest it will be able to get into the Olympics is 2016 at this point.
