I read this newspaper article from a New Zealand newspaper with my own eyes. The countries champion has been banned and stripped of his title because in the Studio he belongs to (in which he is allowed to teach Social Couples ). To help the Studio he taught a competition couple. That was enough to get him banned by his association. How ridiculace is that Here where i live, a visiting competing top German couple were allowed to teach and it was advertsed on the net. This is how unfair this can become. If the banned person took the Dance Society to court the costs would come from his own pocket. The Society would defend the action with his own money. He being a paid up member.
