The Publication was made by the Board following the World Dance Council’s purported dissolution of the Competitors Commission in January 2018.

We The Competitors Commission would like to point out that as dancers we have to support the best musicians that provide us with the best dance music and therefore help us to enhance our performance. To have the great opportunity and the great pleasure to be able to dance to such wonderful music arrangements as the La Mariposa Tango composed by Ashley Frolick, the musical director of the Empress Orchestra, we must purchase original CD`s, to be able to have more of of the wonderful melodies available on further CD’s as the process of producing in studio-quality is very expensive in the making. Please keep in mind, that if we copy or share the dance music, we destroy ourselves a great opportunity to have more wonderful dance music like in the CD – “Always and Forever”!
