Dancing at the Olympics

Competitive dancing (dancesport) was one of 12 sports which was initially considered for inclusion in the 2020 and 2024 Olympic Games, but it did not survive the first cut.

There is contention whether dancing is even a sport, though anyone who knows about the competitive form of dance will agree that fits the criteria of a sport. Dancesport has similarities to the Winter sport of ice dancing and figure skating, so it is not unreasonable to think that it is an option for inclusion at the Olympics.
