What is DanceSport?

DanceSport is what used to be referred to as competitive Ballroom Dancing, renamed to suit its modern image as a demanding sport. Characteristics consist of physical strength, agility, co-ordination, stamina, high level of fitness, discipline, teamwork, grace, style and musical interpretation. DanceSport is now recognised by the International Olympic Committee as a sport for eventual inclusion in the Olympic program. 

DanceSport provides opportunity for developing athletic discipline of body and mind as well as artistic creativity through musical interpretation, costume design and choreographic programming.
