ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47)-When you look up the word sport in the dictionary it’s defined as “an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.” So what about dance, does it fall it to that mix? It’s a debate as old as time, should dance be considered a sport? The Mayo Spirits Dance team makes up 1 of 28 competitive sports teams at their high school. Despite their status in the schools athletic department they often find themselves being questioned by their peers. However the team continues to work hard on the dance floor day in and day out to prove why dance is in fact, a sport.
