DanceSport is what used to be referred to as competitive Ballroom Dancing. This glamorous and exciting leisure activity has been renamed to suit its modern image as a demanding sport.

Its characteristics consist of physical strength, agility, co-ordination, stamina, high level of fitness, discipline, teamwork, grace, style and musical interpretation. It is now recognised by the International Olympic Committee as a sport and is expected to eventually be included in the Olympic program. It was featured in the closing ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. DanceSport provides opportunity for developing athletic discipline of body and mind and as well as artistic creativity through musical interpretation, costume design and choreographic programming.

There are a few pathways in DanceSport...  The major one being Competitive, another is for the Medalist dancer or if you just want to have fun, then there is the Social side as well, where most dancers are introduced into the sport. Many see dancing as being an artistic expression of oneself, and not just a physical sport. However whatever the case may be, whether you are interested in medals, or want to be challenged to a higher level in the competitive field, you can rest assured that everyone should at one point in their lives experience the joy to dance. Many find that once they do they wished they had started earlier in their lives. Following this introduction is an explanation of what dancesport can do for you, please read and enjoy!
