Saturday Night Downtown Hanoi That results for "dancesport" in a Google search under "News" are frequently dominated by posts in Vietnamese has much to do with the fact that "DanceSport" is generally kept in English, proper WDSF branding included. Something which can produce a headline such as this: 

Môn DanceSport tỏa sáng với số vé bán nhanh nhất (DanceSport Shines with Fastest-Selling Tickets)

That is how the Vietnamese Olympic Committee (VOC) titled its report on DanceSport tickets selling better than those to any other of the 20 sports featured in the 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Art Games (AIMAG) in Ashgabat, TUR. In the same article, the VOC celebrated the AIMAG gold medal obtained in Salsa by Vietnames athletes Nguyễn Trung Kiên and Phạm Hồng Anh as well.

DanceSport's public profile seems to be exceptionally high in Vietnam for other reasons too. There is more dancing in public and on TV than in most countries. It seems virtually omnipresent.

Only one or two or three other sports are practised as publicly by people of all ages: Vietnamese foot shuttlecock and -maybe - football. Simply Popular!
