DanceSport is a team sport. It is generally defined as partner dancing between a man and a woman combining as a couple and using the required technique together with floorcraft and artistic interpretation to produce a highly disciplined dance performance.
DanceSport developed out of the narrow confines of competition ballroom dancing. But today it includes any dance style which has achieved an internationally recognised competition structure and has adopted a sports based culture.
Couples are compared on their performances in a number of areas: Timing and basic rhythm, Body lines, Movement, Rhythmic interpretation, Footwork, Floorcraft.
DanceSport becomes an official Asian Games sport in Guangzhou Asian Games, 2010.
