DanceSport is the name given to competitive ballroom and latin american dancing. Most DanceSport competitors believe that DanceSport is both a sport and an art. With the creative freedom to express their inner selves and the extreme agility and fitness of the most elite athletes, DanceSport for most competitors is a passion, an art and a sport.
Dance is an endeavour which improves the quality of life.
In its simplest form, it can provide pleasurable aerobic and weight bearing exercise, at the highest levels it can transcend language barriers as music and movement stir the emotions of audiences. In the case of wheelchair DanceSport, at least one of the dancers is in a wheelchair.
DanceSport promotes family participation, develops social interaction, and builds community relationships.
In fact, the advantages of DanceSport encompass almost every aspect of life and therefore impacts every person around the world who is capable of moving to music.
DanceSport requires no special skills or equipment,
except the wish to learn which is unique amongst the various forms of dance. People of all ages, gender and culture can enjoy the challenges that range from social dancing to competitive action.
