Dancing With Our Heroes

Premier charity event for America's Veteran organizations

Dancing With Our Heroes is a unique event that pairs Military Heroes (wounded warriors and veterans) with local Fred Astaire dance professionals to compete at a fund-raising gala supporting Veteran charities and Veteran service organizations.

Dancing With Our Heroes was born out of the idea that dance can be an effective form of healing, physical therapy and confidence building. In 2012 Fred Astaire Dance Studios and FMI’s Operation Outreach worked to bring together professional dance instructors with Wounded Warriors at the San Antonio Center for the Intrepid. The results were amazing and Dancing With Our Heroes was born. 

Since 2012 Dancing With Our Heroes events have been held in cities across the nation.  FMI’s Operation Outreach has a mission to make Dancing With Our Heroes Gala a great fund raising event that impacts Veterans and their communities. We are an organization of veterans with a passion for helping veterans. 

Join us on our mission to support Wounded Warriors, their families and our nation’s heroes – our veterans and their families.
