German term or phrase: karnevalistischer Tanzsport
Encountered in a list of hobbies. From Google images it looks rather like "cheerleading" - does anyone know if it's the same thing? Or could it be more like "street dance"?
All suggestions welcome!

Thanks - I think this probably covers part of it, and I'm still not sure that majorette dancing is an exact equivalent. I think for the purposes of the translation it's OK.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for the suggestion Michél, and I think your comment has pointed me in the direction to the answer, Nicole - we have this in the UK, where it is known as "majorette dancing". :) Thanks!


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Nicole Schnell: Sorry - I have to disagree. Karnevaltanzsport (baton twirling and such, usually in uniforms) cannot be compared to Carnival as celebrated in Brazil or Mardi Gras as celebrated in the South of the USA.
