- Laura is in the beginning phases of creating a professional dance association in order to create and uphold a standard of professionalism across many areas, especially as sexual misconduct.
- There is very little accreditation, if any, in order to become a "professional" in the dance scene and this leaves many instructors, DJs, performers, and event organizers very ill equipped to handle more serious professional matters.
- It is important for the association to have as much of a global reach as possible and for it to span across multiple partner dances.
