Join us August 17th from 6:00pm - 11:00pm at Ceruti's Banquet and Event Center for the Dancing with the Heroes fundraiser event, an effort to raise money for Honor Flight. A plated dinner will be served while veterans from different wars and branches of service will be dancing with The Fort Wayne Ballroom Company professional instructors. Expect to see performances of all ages spanning many styles of dance. Whether you love dancing, are inspired to help, or want to show your appreciation of those who have served our country, Dancing with the Heroes will entertain, tug at your heart strings, and help create services for our veterans. Last year over $77,000 was raised to fund a full Honor Flight. This year our goal is to raise $100,000 to fund another flight. We hope you celebrate our veterans with us and enjoy some very special performances!
The Student Spotlight is featuring Jan Madlem. She became involved in dance after a swing dancer in Indianapolis danced with her and lifted up her spirits after a divorce. It was enough of a lift that Jan began dancing competitively and placed 2nd in the rising star at Ohio Star Ball. She now enjoys dance for the mental challenge, exercise, social outlet, and a love of the music and atmosphere. At the Fort Wayne Ballroom Company, she is fond of the friendly family feeling and the class choices that offer something for everyone, even tap!
