Come Dance for Life As We Recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and your Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Tucson has a very special event on the horizon as we work to combat this terrible disease.

Come Dance for Life with us at the studio on Thursday, Oct. 19, from 8:20-9:30 p.m.

Please join us for refreshments and general dancing, as well as organized group dancing. Each instructor will have a dance card. Reserve your dance with a $10 donation. Help keep your instructor dancing as we raise funds to fight breast cancer. All proceeds will be donated to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Foundation. 

There’s a $25 cover charge, plus the $10 per dance with the instructors. What a great way to step in and help battle this scourge.

According to, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. Currently, the average risk of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer sometime in her life is about 12%. This means there is a 1 in 8 chance she will develop breast cancer. This also means there is a 7 in 8 chance she will never have the disease.

More than 40,000 women die every year of breast cancer.

Step up and step out on the dance floor with Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Tucson to help out in the fight against breast cancer. Come Dance for Life on Thursday, Oct. 19.
