Dance Network

Our founder, Marilyn Fordney, has made an important new affiliation and the Fordney Foundation is excited to present them to you.  In recent weeks, Mrs. Fordney has been in communication with Dance Network, a brand new, first ever, full service network devoted entirely to dance.

Dance Network also did the live stream of all the Ohio Star Ball competitions and the team match this year.  As you know, Marilyn Fordney and her husband, Alex Havasi and the Fordney Foundation are very involved in the Ohio Star Ball. The plan is to meet with some of the Dance Network representatives to see how the Fordney Foundation can work along with Dance Network in the upcoming months.
