Here’s what people are saying about Ron Putman!

It is to many emotions that I write about the impact Ron Putman has had on my life through dance. Who would ever think that saying yes to a dance competition for a community charity would result in a competitive dance partnership and a lifelong friendship?! Dancing is the new love of my life and has reshaped my mind, body and soul. It wouldn’t have been possible without Ron.”

— Liz Dalton

Ron Putman is a symbol of strength, confidence, patience, and compassion. Ron was presented with a challenge that took deep consideration – that challenge was training a complete non-dancer who has a physical disability resulting from a work related injury and creating a competitor in the Dancing with Athens Stars 2009. Not only were there weekly dance lessons over 9 months, but the behind the scenes time and energy put into this performance made it very personal. He constructed the dance routine and molded it to my ability. Success and happiness were the only option. Not only did he train me, but he became a part of my healing. Our paths crossed and now a true friendship has bloomed. Thank you.”
