Latin-American and Ballroom Dancing, has been popular in South Africa for quite long time. But only recently (1996-1997) was Ballroom Dancing accepted as a sport in South Africa and the World! On the 4th September 1997 the International Olympic Committee (IOC) granted full recognition to the international Dance Sport Federation (IDSF) as the governing body of DanceSport.

The IDSF today is fully recognised by the IOC as an International sports federation, open to all DanceSport athletes (competitors), coaches, trainers, and adjudicators. The IDSF fulfils all the requirements for a program sport in future Olympic Games.

DanceSport is a highly organised International competition structure and is conducted at the highest competitive level. DanceSport will be included in the 2000 Olympic Games as a demonstration event and the 2008 Olympic Games as a competition event!

DanceSport (Latin & Standard) is currently the 3rd most popular Sport in South Africa! Unlike most sports, DanceSport is a very expensive sport. Due to the lack of publicity that DanceSport has received in the past, Professionals and Amateurs do not get enough financial support (sponsorship).
