Here is something I bet you did not know. Some military personnel who have transitioned out of the military have taken a fast-track training program at Fred Astaire Dance Studios. In just a few months (that’s right MONTHS) they have gone from knowing little-to-nothing about dance to being actual dance instructors. In a VERY short amount of time they moved up to managing, owning a franchise and now to being among the top producing studios in the company. What we have found at Forward March Inc. is that military personnel are especially suited not only for the training and becoming instructors themselves, but becoming highly successful in the company. Forward March Inc. has an outstanding relationship with our customer Fred Astarie Dance Studios. You owe it to yourself to check out our previous post to learn more about the outstanding opportunities for employment and even franchise ownership with them.
Learn about the great work Forward March Inc. is doing with Fred Astaire Dance Studios through Dancing With Our Heroes. To date we have worked together to raise over $300,000.00 for The Fisher House Foundation and the USO.
