Inc. was established in 1960 by Mr. Franc Peri with the goal of producing
high quality dance records for national and international distribution. As the
company's catalogue of music grew, the popularity of Roper Records became
widespread. Dance studios, ballroom competitions, instructors, professional
dance associations, and dancers themselves came to recognize the familiar
sounds of Roper Records music. Big band sounds, great production, and sound
engineering made every Roper Record a popular choice for dance music.
addition to its classic ballroom catalogue, Roper Records grew to include music
for the Performing Arts, with an extensive collection of Ballet, Tap, and Jazz
compilations. These are produced with many of the finest pianists and music
supervisors in the industry.
Today, Roper Records continues its
reputation for music excellence, offering frequent New Releases and an
impressive Catalogue of Dance Music. Many items are available in LP format,
cassettes, and CDs and are conveniently shipped from the company's facilities
in Long Island City, New York.
