Is figure skating and dancing sports or not?

I hate sports, except golf. I have done three tyupes of dance in 7 yrs and figure skating this past year.

As far as I know, figure skating and dancing are both sports :)

When we talk about a sport it doesn't have to be only like football, hockey, volleyball, basketball, etc. It can be many stuff...
Many people think that to play a sport we need a ball, but that's just wrong.

Yeah, they're sports, I'm pretty sure of that, at least jazz (i dunno if that's the same word for other countries too, but it's a quite populair sport in here) is and ballroomdancing is, if you get high enough and I'm sure figure skating is

YEah I really love dancing and figure skating
I have done Ballet, tap and Ballroom
Because some kids think that I am just a lazy bum because I only do dancing, because dancing is considered and art if you ask a professinal, just like music and drawing so I was just wondering has anyone her ever danced

Ofcourse they are sports, you can see figure skateing from EuroSport almost every day. And dancing.. depends on what kind on dancing do you mean but loosely yes.
I don't know wery much about golf but it seems nice. So keep training :D lol

I have danced. I took ballet for 7 or so years when I was a kid. :D

I would say figure skating is a sport. Dancing...I think it depends on if you compete and what not if I'd consider it a sport. But it's definitely a lot of work, so someone who dances is no lazy bum. :)

To me they would be quite physical... alos you find them at the Olympics so to me the answer is a great big YES! :)
