Jeffrey Hajko, owner and manager of the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Naples, Florida, was recently quoted in the Fort Myers Florida Weekly publication:
"For me, dancing is a different way of expression...You can write a poem, you can tell a story, or you can do the same thing with dance. And once people start dancing, they begin to realize that there's more to it - there are benefits. Exercise, making new friends, that sense of achievement that comes with moving so well."
Professional instructors at the Naples studio are currently training with nine prominent local celebrities for the "Dancing With The Stars" gala fundraiser for the Literacy Volunteers of Collier County held in mid-November.
