If you like moving your body to music. Then dancing is for you regardless of your weight or size.

I was at a dance party the other day and a hefty guy began dancing and I thought, "Wow. He's a great dancer." On a cruise, I saw a very elderly lady come into the nightclub using a walker. But she and her husband were able to dance together without the walker.

Dancing is fun and size isn't a barrier as long as you're healthy enough to move your body. That means almost everyone can dance.

Dancing is about movement and balance

As far as professional competition goes I haven't seen any overweight competitors. I could be wrong. Maybe it has to do with the level of agility to execute multiple spins, splits etc. As far as social dancing goes, I don't think it matters. Just have fun with it.

Of course everyone would like to be fit, but that's not reality. Dancing is fun and great exercise.

sad if people are judged by there size, what if the same person you villify due to there size was the surgeon standing over you on operating table, would you say no thanks your to large or to thin. every single person on this planet has a skill, irrelevant of size

A healthy BMI is more important for functionality and to accomplish highest athletic performance possible.
