Should The Olympics Add “Ballroom Dancing” To It’s Field Of Categories? (New Mark Ballas Interview)

Should the Olympics add “Ballroom Dancing” to it’s field of categories (or any kind of dancing)? I sure think so. If they have Ice Skating And Ice Dancing, etc., why not Ballroom Dancing? Mark Ballas remarked on it in a new interview with OK! Magazine. Do you agree or disagree?

“I think it would be a great Olympic sport, just because we’re athletes,” the hoofer, 26, tells me this week while promoting his gig performing at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana’s Summer With The Stars event taking place now through Aug. 16.

“With what we do, we have to train hard, but the technicality is it’s extremely difficult, it’s amazing to watch. It’s like any pair sport — you have synchronized diving and all that kind of stuff. The one thing that would be difficult is making sure the judging was fair.”

Let us know what you think and be sure to read the full interview here. Mark also talks of Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte dancing in the future on Dancing With the Stars as well as his trip to the Dominican Republic to take part in Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana’s Summer With The Stars where he’ll join fellow Dancing With The Stars All-Stars competitor Joey Fatone.
