Clearwater, Florida – On Thursday October 18th, the monthly Swing Dances for Charity will start a new season in the Fort Harrison’s Ballroom in downtown Clearwater. The Fort Harrison is the international religious retreat for the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization. These dances will occur from October through to April.

“The dances bring people together for a good cause and makes them competent at a new skill. The Founder of Scientology, Mr. L. Ron Hubbard said: ‘The biggest human right that there is in human rights is the right to help’ and this is a great for people can do this,” concluded Ms. Mansell.

The Swing Dance for November 15th will benefit the Herman and Mary G Allen Outreach and the December 20th Swing Dancing will benefit the Children’s Home Network of Tampa Bay.
