    And that is in one sentence why it Ballroom is neither - Olympic sports don't really fit into what MFA programs are trying to do. OTOH i think that ballroom dancers should be able get a degree in more general programs without too much trouble - i know for example that Sharna Fabiano (a tango dancer) is getting a degree in world arts and culture: dance. I am not sure if thinking about cultural context, history and performance practice would be that useful to a competetive dancer, though
