Hello, my name is Jenna.  I am working with my friend Siena, a competitive gymnast. I am a competitive dancer. We believe that these types of activities are a sport. These take a lot of effort and time out of weeks.  It takes years and years to perfect skills.  You may be thinking, just because it is hard doesn’t mean it is a sport. But, we compete and people are entertained by it. Here is the definition of a sport: “an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.”. Both of these sports have physical exertion.  We compete with a team at world wide meets and competitions. And people enjoy watching this. Skills such as, ariels, back handsprings, back twist, needle, fouetté, and frappés take so much time to master. People don’t appreciate how much goes into this. I understand if you would not like to sign it.  It would mean a lot to our teachers, mentors, coaches, and friends.  There has been so much controversy around this subject. If Gymnastics and Dance weren’t a sport what would they be? A hobby? That’s doesn’t deserve that type of label. It is rude and disrespectful. It is very upsetting to the dance and gymnastics community. Thank you for your opinions, thought and time to read this.
