Dance is linked to the ancient Olympic Games as far back as the 8th Century BC. At the time, the temple virgins would perform a scared dance in a circle in honor of a god, to begin the games. 

Ballroom dance was only meant for the crème de la crème of the society and folk dances for the folks from the lower levels of the society. Usually, ballroom dancing took place on grand social occasions, social dinners and even for competitions.

The name Dance Sport was created to help competitive ballroom dancing gain Olympic Recognition.  In September 1997, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognized the International Dance Sport Federation (IDSF) as the sole representative body for dance sport.   
 

The National Ballroom Dance Association of Trinidad and Tobago (NABDATT) is the local body responsible for dance sport. Please follow this link for more information about the NABDATT: http://nabdatt.com/ website/dancesport.htm
