The Urban Dance League (U.D.L) is a professional sports league of organized street-dance competitions, classes, and showcases. The U.D.L presents professional dancing in the same arena as the professional sports and athletic world.
My entire life I have considered dancers as athletes. We train for years, while investing countless hours training in sessions, classes and rehearsals. We hone our craft, exercise all of our physical capabilities and sometimes defy them, pushing past the limits of the human body. As dancers, we withstand injuries and endure both treatment and rehabilitation. I would strongly contest with anyone who argued that dancers are not athletes.
Sports, by definition are all forms of competitive physical activity, which through casual or organized participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical fitness and provide entertainment to participants; to be a professional dancer is to do and be all of these things. The foundation of the UDL is based on precisely that.
