Battle Plan Media started as an idea late last year and became a reality at the beginning of 2015.

He took a deep look at the state of the current industry and felt there was a better product for business owners – a better way to tell their story. As natural storytellers, Battle Plan Media wanted to provide the best experience for their clients. They use proven techniques that not only brought record ratings to television markets, but local Emmy nominations as well. The company was built on helping partners gain an edge on the front line of the business battlefield; that’s where the name comes from. Battle Plan Media isn’t just a name, it’s a strategy. They made the investment in broadcast quality equipment, professional-grade editing software and hardware, and a promise to offer your video… your way… on time.

The Fred Astaire Dance Studio was founded 68 years ago in 1947, when the Master of Dance himself, Mr. Fred Astaire, co-founded the company. Mr. Astaire established a chain of studios under his name to make sure that his techniques would be preserved and passed onto the public.

Fred Astaire Dance Studio offers a unique teaching system of private instruction, group lessons and practice lessons. Private instruction is where you perfect and polish your dancing at your own pace. Group lessons provide you with the opportunity to meet other students with similar dancing goals, develop balance and learn the mechanics of dancing. Practice lessons will help you put everything together as well as aid in music identification and help you learn not to run into other people on the dance floor. All dance instructors are highly skilled and trained to help you learn using the unique Fred Astaire Method. Their dance curriculum covers the full range of American, Latin American, International Style and Exhibition/Theatre Arts dances.

Owners of Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Bonita Springs, Yuriy and Alexandra Datsyk are a world renowned professional dance couple and dance educators. They have more than 30 years of professional dance experience and retain the titles of former Ukrainian National Professional Grand Finalists and Champions in International Latin, Standard and 10 Dance divisions. They have traveled extensively throughout Europe, competing successfully and teaching International style Latin and Standard Dance. In 1999, Yuriy and Alexandra moved to the U.S. to join Fred Astaire Dance Studios and for the past 11 years they have been running a successful New York Midtown Fred Astaire Studio in the heart of Manhattan. The Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Bonita Springs is Yuriy and Alexandra’s newest project.

Owner, Pavlo Bilych began his dancing career in 1980 with the “Estet” Ballroom Dance Company in Lviv, Ukraine. He is a two-time winner of the championship title in International Standard Formation Team competition in the former Soviet Union. Pavlo’s most prominent accomplishments include the development of the Children’s Dance Formation movement, establishing a dance program on Lviv’s popular television station which he directed and choreographed. Over the past two years, Pavlo worked for the Arthur Murray studios in Taipei, Taiwan, as dance director and manager. As a result of his work there, the dance studio became the No. 1 studio in the region.
