The newest addition is Moises ”Moy” Rivas (B-boy Moy) from the USA in the WDSF Athletes Commission led by Mrs. Ashli Williamson (DEN).

B-boy Moy, featured recently at the Olympic Channel podcast, has over 20 years of experience both in dancing but also giving back to the community by sharing his vision and dance all over the world. His story emphasizes on the importance of searching and finding a passion, and he has found it himself in creating opportunities that will encourage everyone that anything is possible.

As a competing b-boy he has been active since 1995 and he has reached top 4 in the main events, including Silverback Open in 2014 and Undisputed USA 2017. Since 2016 he has also been a member of Monster Crew.

Moy was appointed by the IOC as Athlete Role Model for Breaking at the Youth Olympic Games 2018, to serve as the mentor to young b-boys and b-girls who competed in the YOG, and to local youth as well, spending time with them and participating in activities which revolved around sport, culture and education.

"We're so pleased to be able to welcome B-boy Moy to our commission to bring the voice of all of our dancesport styles into the Athletes Commission. We are one of the fortunate Sports Federations that involve the athletes when decisions are made, and are open and supportive of our projects", Mrs. Williamson said.

The Athletes’ Commission is a consultative body of WDSF, submitting opinions held and requests articulated by the active athletes in DanceSport directly to the Presidium. The chairperson represents the commission’s views and opinions at the Presidium meetings.

Over the years to come, the commission is to grow organically and should - ultimately - comprise representatives of all DanceSport disciplines under WDSF auspices. Absolute gender parity among the members is to mark its composition as much as it does DanceSport in general.
