How often are you moved by someone: that special someone who inspired you and, regardless of how long it’s been since you’ve last seen or talked with them, is always in your thoughts: that person who has hit that special spot and who you’ll never forget……..
MaDonna Grimes is that person for me. I was fortunate to meet MaDonna when I was in college and she was friends with Patti Palese, one of my dance teachers. I was visiting in LA and attended one of MaDonna’s dance classes at a Bally’s; the way she taught really opened up my eyes to how a great dance instructor could really inspire people. We kept in touch, and when I moved to LA she hired me as a dance teacher in her Hollywood studio and then on her dance team, where I was able to dance all over the world.
Like she has dozens of others, MaDonna has given me opportunity after opportunity, inspired me to always be better and always go after my dreams. And now it’s time to give back!
Two months ago MaDonna found out she inherited Colon-rectal cancer from her late grandmother and, although she has health insurance, needs help to pay for what will be very expensive surgery. I’m excited to be a part of a group of people who know and love MaDonna and are coming together with and for her to help Dance Away Cancer.
On May 5th an All-Star Team of LA Fitness Pros will celebrate with MaDonna at Crunch Fitness in West Hollywood. The team includes Me, Petra Kolber, Milo Levell, Michelle Dozois, Patrick Goudeau, Michelle LeMay, Laurie Carpenter, Deb Praver, Kendall Hogan, Star Agreed, Marvin Thornton and many, many more. This WILL be the “it” place to be and you do not want to miss it. Spread the word and share away. There will be a raffle; gift bags plus so much more. ALL are welcome and, if you live in LA, we want you there to help support MaDonna.
If you don’t live in LA or can’t make it, but want to help this beautiful person BEAT CANCER, you can still be a part of this benefit by clicking and donating here: http://www.gofundme.com/MaDonnafightingcancer.

See you on MaDonna’s Dance Floor!
