Further commitment to the proper legacy of Dancesport in Malaysia is evident through the continuous efforts of the Sports Director, Mr. Chua. From attending events like the Safe Sport Code launch by the Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS) to engaging in discussions about anti-doping and anti-corruption measures, Mr. Chua's presence underscores MYDF's dedication to ethical practices. Moreover, his participation in sports science courses conducted by the National Sports Institute (ISN Malaysia) signifies MYDF's commitment to advancing the sport's technical aspects.
The sports director’s effort in further solidifying MYDF's role as the guardian of dancesport's core values and conveying MYDF’s willingness to collaborate and grow is also demonstrated through the seeking of advice from Youth & Sports Minister, YB Hannah Yeoh. Mr. Chua’s active participation in vital congresses and workshops related to both the national and international sports arenas exemplifies MYDF's determination to uphold the highest standards.
