Is Corta Jaca Dance a properly run, bona fide teaching organization?
Corta Jaca Dance is run by Andy Mundy, who is a Fellow (both Ballroom and Latin) of the International Dance Teachers Association and also holds separate Licentiate degrees in both Ballroom and Latin dancing with the Canadian Dance Teachers Association. He is, therefore, a professionally qualified and licensed dance teacher.
Corta Jaca Dance holds a current, valid Certificate of Performing Right Licence issued by SOCAN, the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada, as well as business insurance to cover third party risks and public liability.
Andy also holds a license from CONNECT Music Licensing (formerly AVLA - Audio-Video Licensing Agency Inc). This is a legal requirement if music is played using sound recordings from any kind of computer hard drive, iPod, MP3 player, CDRs, cassettes or other duplicated format. It is not required only if playing original CDs.
