Random debate I got into with my family. Is Dance a sport ?
I don’t think so. I recognize that it takes a lot of skill and can be very physically demanding and competitive. I am not a good dancer for the record.
A sport must meet a minimum physical exertion requirement. I think competitive Dance meets that condition.
However, in order for something to be a sport I think there must be a objective winner or loser. For example, soccer who scored more goals? In basketball who made more baskets resulting in the most points?
The winner in Dance is based on a judges’ interpretation and is too subjective. Not straight forward like the soccer or basketball examples cited. Ironically I put this post in the “other sports category” but should probably be in health and fitness.
