"Dance isn't even a sport"
Typically people say dance is not a sport because it is not like others. It doesn't have a ball; we don't have weekly "games" to play in. What people don't realize is that a ball in most sports, is just like our routines we learn in class. Those "games" are our competitions. We have to train for it, just like any other athlete. Dance might not be as aggressive, but they all have the same components. To be able to dance well, an individual needs to be flexible, strong, have stamina, endurance, balance, good sense of movement, proper turnout, straight lines, strong stage presence, but most importantly have the love and passion for what they are doing. All while looking graceful and light on our feet. So to me and any other dancer, we consider dance to be a sport just like any other. Actually, maybe even a bit harder than the rest of them ;)

OF course everyone walks up to me and kicks there leg in the air and says dance isn’t a sport because I can do it. But I’d like to see them do a perfect double pirouette and a split in the air!
