FFRA is a non-profit Citrus County organization serving the needs of persons with developmental disabilities. This is another effort by the organization to enhance and showcase the skills and talents of those developmentally disabled adults in Citrus County. FFRA has been holding dance lessons for this special population of our members for the past two months and giving them instructions on several dance styles. While the Top Hat Big Band Concert is a fundraising event for FFRA it’s also an opportunity for members to learn, grow, show off and be proud of a newly acquired skills and to always “reach for their abilities”.
