DanceSport Asia Limited (DSA) Gives WDSF's Asian Member Bodies a Strong Voice in WDSF and in Asia 27/08/2019

A standing ovation of support, solidarity and unity during the DSA meeting

Congratulations to all on the inauguration of DanceSport Asia (DSA) on 25 August 2019, a newly-constituted and truly representative Asian Continental Federation for DanceSport.  The DSA Presidium was elected August 25, 2019 based on a democratic nomination process and good governance. A true testimony of the DSA’s principle of inclusiveness and broad participation, the DSA Presidium which was elected comprises 14 different countries’ WDSF DanceSport bodies across Asia.

DanceSport Asia Limited was incorporated on 19 July 2019, as a “company limited by guarantee” under Singapore Law.  This step had been approved by the unanimous vote of a World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) Asian Member bodies’ information meeting in Budapest in June 2019.  It was also confirmed at that time that draft By-Laws would be passed and office-holders elected at the new company’s first Extraordinary General Meeting, to be held in Singapore on 25 August 2019. 

The newly elected office-holders are: 

President: Crossen Yin Guo Chen (China)
General Secretary: John Fam (Malaysia)
Treasurer: Ang Ai Nee (Singapore)
Sports Director: George Tan (Malaysia)
Communication Director: Kabdulla Baizhanov (Kazakhstan)
Vice-President of Marketing: Jimmy Su Jie (China)
Vice-President of Development: Fanny Tanudihardja (Indonesia)
Vice-President of Membership: Chang Hwan Choi  (South Korea)
Committee Members are representatives of the following countries: Philippines, Lebanon, Mongolia, Macau, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Vietnam, and India.

DanceSport Asia has the unanimous support of the WDSF Presidium. 

The DSA is proud of its very broad representation across Asia, as its 14 member bodies constitute more than 77% of all of WDSF’s Asian member bodies.  The names speak for themselves.  Everyone has a voice, Members spoke and discussed Motions freely, and elections were conducted with proper governance of the Secret Ballot.  All Motions presented at this legal meeting were passed unanimously.  The DSA meeting has once again restored the collaborative relationship of Asian WDSF Member bodies when they meet under Rule of Law, and has energetically rejected all arbitrary measures. 

We say in sporting friendship that, according to any objective view, “ADSF” effectively no longer exists as any kind of continental representative.   

The remaining few Asian Members of WDSF can still join DSA if they wish and they are encouraged to do so by sending DSA their Applications for Membership, together with their formal, unconditional, signed, written resignations from the ADSF group, by August 31, 2019.
