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.

DanceSport developed out of the narrow confines of competition ballroom dancing but today includes any dance style which has achieved an internationally recognised organised competition structure and has adopted a sports based culture. The currently recognised sections or disciplines in International-Style DanceSport are: Standard, Latin, Ten Dance.
