Everyone loves to dance! People were shaking their stuff on the dance floor long before YouTube launched Gangnam Style and the Harlem Shake. Dancing is a skill; an art rather than just tapping your feet on the ground and clapping around. Dancing brings people close and helps them forget the world around them. Committed to including the sports you love, DanceSport will be one of the sporting events at Gay Games Hong Kong 2022. Everybody is capable of moving to music. And dance breaks all barriers of race, gender, sexual orientation, and age.
Not everyone realizes that dancing has been a sport since the early 20th century. It was Camille de Rhynal, a French businessman, and other magnificent dancers who initiated dance contests in place of the traditional ballroom dances. In 1907, the first international Tango tournament was held in Nice, France and later followed in Germany and England. ‘DanceSport’ was the term coined by the World DanceSport Federation in 1980s. As a sport, dance delivers all the physical requirements of a sport, and also incorporates unique artistic attributes. DanceSport is a balance of “Art and Athleticism”- most similarly seen in Ballet. Moreover, it represents the comprehensive image of an activity that remains within the reach of every individual- crossing all barriers.
No matter who you are, DanceSport is for you! One of the sporting events at Gay Games Hong Kong 2022, Dance Sport events will be sanctioned by IFSSDA (International Federation of Same- Sex Dance Association) and Asian Dance Sport Federation (ADSF). Planned event venue will be located at Queen Elizabeth Stadium Oi Kwan Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong Island.
Gay Games Hong Kong 2022 will be an empowering experience for all – anyone can participate- regardless of ability, age, sexual orientation, race, gender, nationality, political or religious beliefs, ethnic origins, or HIV status- and let their passion for sports bloom without fear of being judged or stigmatized.
