What are these men thinking? It makes me ill to think that you can't trust anybody. Why does this seem to happen so often? Ten grand is not enough and whatever punishment he gets will never be enough.

We are shocked by the allegations brought upon Georgio Fagan. Our children have been attending Georgio’s American Dance Center since 2004. Until he is proven guilty, we stand behind him. We have entrusted our children with him. He is a mentor to many children in the community. I hope that if he is innocent (which we hope he is), that these girls be punished for ruining his reputation and everything that he has worked so hard for. We feel sorry for his family especially his two children.

That was my exact thought. This guy does NOT belong on the streets!!!

If I were a parent of one of these girls, he would not be safe.

I be more inclined to think he was innocent if there weren't seven victims.

I have supported Gee in many community events. My 10 year-old daughter just made his performance company and is absolutely devastated! I would like to say that I can give him the benefit of the daoubt, however, with the number of "victims" growing larger it is hard to stay positive. I, too, feel soory for his family and all of the youth who look up to him as their teacher and mentor. I am anxious to hear who the the female teacher is that is being investigated.

In response to the message below, they are saying that the female teacher is Gilliane Lopez. She left Georgio's a couple years ago but was the assistant director at that time. To our knowledge, she left to pursue other dancing opportunities.

The investigation has been going on for 7 months; if he wanted to he would have skipped town long ago.

Yeah... but he wasn't charged/ arrested during that time...

If I were you, I'd play it safe until this is resolved, and NOT leave your children unsupervised with him... That would be irresponsible.

10K is way too little for these very serious allegations. I definitely wouldn't want this guy near any kids until the public knows more. Sorry, but he sounds like(and has the appearance of)real creep to me.

My little sister has been a student at this guys studio for years now so I've been to many of his dance shows and have witnessed his relationships with his students which are all girls for the most part. Since day 1, I called this guy out. From another man's point of view, he always seemed to be waaayyyy too close to these girls and it seemed like he had no other life other than to hang out with these teenage girls. This comes as absolutely no surprise to me whatsoever. GUILTY AS CHARGED!

Come on people - wake up! I fail to see how people can stand behind someone like this. Blind faith to people like this is ignorance. You are probably the same people that use an activity like this as baby sitting. His studio was dirty, the people who worked the desk were rude. He was praying on your money and your kids.
Thank goodness for my daughter too young or maybe not a good enough dancer to be his pray. Property appraiser shows he lives in Astor Farms - watch yourself in the neck of the woods.

Right on Josh! Didn't he have sleepovers at his studio too.
You are a savvy person! The rest are way to naive and trusting.

if this was a female she would never have been charged.
they call it "rape".......the girl went back 50 times so she could be raped again and again.

Yes, but these investigations are done in secret, not with his knowing about it! That wouldn't be an investigation, but an interview.

im one of the students and company members at Georgio's American Dance Centre. the people commenting negatively about G really should hear from someone who is actually knowlegable about him and this situation before ignorantly slandering him, which in turn negatively affects me personally, along with the other students and staff. i have known G for 10 years and he hasnt done anything less than good for the kids, the parents, the community, everyone. he's the best thing to happen to lake mary since 1998. God bless you Gee and keep your chin up.

IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN IN THE PERFORMING ARTS COMPANY AT GEORGIO'S AMERICAN DANCE CENTRE FOR MORE THAN 3-4 YEARS YOU SHOULDN'T BE SAYING ANYTHING. YOU DONT KNOW THE MAN. AND WHATEVER HE IS CHARGED WITH HE WILL BE DELT WITH ACCORDINGLY. I SAY WATCH WHAT YOU SAY AND DONT LEAVE YOUR CHILD WITH THIS MAN UNTIL HE IS PROVEN THAT HE IS NOT GUILTY!
