MaDonna Grimes

It is with heavy hearts that we mark the passing of MaDonna Grimes. MaDonna was a beloved member of the dance and fitness community, educating and inspiring many. Her many honors included Miss Fitness International, USA National Aerobics Champion, and the 2008 recipient of the NAACP's Best Choreographer for Theater. Her infectious energy and smile will be sincerely missed by our community. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2013, and was taken from us far too soon. Rest in peace, MaDonna.
