Dancing Matters

Dancers deserve the same amount of funding as other sports

"The current list of emerging sports includes rugby, sand volleyball, and bowling as well as cheer and dance. Emerging sports scholarships can be found, though in more limited number." Although dance is emerging on the list of scholarships, this article tells us that there are far less scholarships given for dance than there are for sports like basketball, baseball, and football.

"The NCAA allows football teams to add up to 25 new scholarship players to the roster per academic year."

Dancers are just as hardworking and dedicated as football, basketball, and baseball players and deserve the same amount of support. It's unfair for dancers that they do not get the same chance as the people that do other sports. Every athlete, playing any sport, whether they are male or female, deserves the same amount of recognition and support from colleges.
