I teach REFIT, a dance fitness program, at the shelter. We believe in community and enriching the heart. I want the women and kids to have a great time, dancing to fun music and getting their minds off the stressful situation they've been through. I so enjoy the smiles and hugs. Knowing its made them feel good for an hour, plus a healthy bonus included. Gayle Maples, REFIT Instructor
