WHAT IS DANCESPORT?
DanceSport  is a team sport. It is generally defined as partner dancing between a man and a woman combining as a couple (or groups of couples combining as a team) and using the required technique together with floorcraft and artistic interpretation to produce a highly disciplined dance performance. 

Ten competitive IDSF dances include the following
:
Standard: Slow Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep
Latin: Samba, Cha-Ch-Cha, Rumba, Paso Doble and Jive.

WHAT IS "PROJECT GRACE"?
Project Grace is an initiative by SGDF to introduce DanceSport to young people from age of 7 to 17 in mainstream schools. This will encourage students to participate in this interesting sport, and potentially take up DanceSport on a continual basis.


Why DanceSport?
a. Improve in physique & well-being through a sustainable game.
b.
To develop alternative soft skills through team interaction and learning appropriate behaviour on the dance floor. 
c.
 Keep youths off the street by engaging their attention in a positive activity.
d.
 Character building through discipline needed to excel in DanceSport.
e.
 This is a fun sport suitable across all ages and gender.
