Tony Dovolani from Dancing with the Stars will be one of the guest instructors at "Dancing from the Heart," a fundraiser presented by STORM to benefit the Variety Club of Buffalo.  The event will be held on February 12, 2011 at the Adam's Mark Hotel, 120 Church Street, Buffalo.

Dance workshops will run from 12:00 noon to 7:00 PM and cover a mix of dance styles including ballroom, belly dancing, salsa and hip hop.  During the evening, the Grand Ballroom will be transformed for a masked ball.  There will be professional dance performances and general dancing. 

"We are delighted to be able to support Variety Kids Telethon for a third year", says Tommy Radon, owner of STORM. "We are planning a great event and having Tony here gives people a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from a world-class dancer." 

No prior dance experience or partner is needed to participate in the workshops.
