People Saying Dancing Isnâ€™t a Sport and that Males Who Dance Are Gay
Dance is one of the many arts. I mean, I base it on how you treat the art of it. If you just dance for the fun of it and you donâ€™t exactly love it, I would label it a hobby. If you dance because you absolutely love it, and if itâ€™s your passion, I see nothing wrong in calling it a sport. Why canâ€™t people respect the pure beauty and the grace of it?
Iâ€™ve been dancing contemporary since I was 3, and Iâ€™m 19 now. Thatâ€™s about 16 years of hard earned skill for my passion. Heck, I made it to choreography on SYTYCD, season 7. Do you know how much it takes to even get to where many contestants, including myself, were? A lot. Iâ€™m not saying everyone should stop saying itâ€™s not a sport, Iâ€™m making a point on how people make accusations about it and the people who engage in the activity. Especially how people call the male dancers â€œgayâ€. They have so much strength and potential, they enjoy it and love it. Itâ€™s a privilege to watch males dance, it really is. Just let them do what they please. We donâ€™t discuss you looking gay as you play football, or say itâ€™s not a sport.
Anything that involves movement/working your muscles in an activity is eligible as a sport. We dancers have our views on our sport, keep your negative opinions to yourself please. Youâ€™re talking trash about our passion here.
