Julie Fitzgerald Step Dance School 

Hey everyone, our very own Julie Fitzgerald is opening a step dance school and online academy and could use your help to get some major start up capitol, heres the message from Julie:

I submitted an application for a competition to start up ONLINE STEP DANCE instruction, as well as starting up a STEP DANCE SCHOOL. I have qualified for the 2nd (of 3 rounds) of the competition .... In order to move on to the final round of the competition, I need your help to VOTE for my 2-minute promotional video!! The students with the MOST VOTES from their video move on to the final round. If I make it on to the final round, I has the chance to present my pitch to a panel of judges to win up to $40,000 in start-up capital. It's easy.... I will post a link of my 2-min. video, where you will be able to watch it and vote :)

Check my FB page often for the link so you can cast your vote (the link should be up an running by this coming Monday!) Also watch for "Julie's Step Dance Page", coming within the next few days!

Thanks a billion! Teaching step dancing is something I have always wanted to do. Having the opportunity to potentially receive funding will help me reach my goals for providing step dance instruction!
