I might not know a whole lot about sports; I can barely recall the rule of football other than the goal is to make a touchdown. Sports are lost on me. What I do know though is that dancing should be considered a sport. Many would be quick to counter, that dancing is not a sport, it’s not competitive and it does not fall in the same lines with hockey and soccer or for that matter, table tennis.
