Sometimes, very important things happen in very ordinary buildings.

That could be said for this Pay it 4Ward segment.

You’d likely drive by The Metropolitan School of Dance many times without it drawing your attention.

But, what happens inside is changing lives one dance step at a time.

Frances Pitts has spent 18 years of her life building this unique dance school. Through it, she reaches young people - from toddlers to young adults - who might otherwise get out of step.

With her own money, she feeds her students and gives them extra food on weekends, so they won’t go hungry.

She also feeds their hunger for love.

When Frances opened the door to our camera, her reaction was one to remember. Join Linda Cavanaugh and Derek Ebert from First Fidelity as they Pay it 4Ward.
