The moment you walk inside a Fred Astaire Franchised Dance Studio, you’ll quickly realize why we’re steps above the rest. From our Beginner to Advanced customized dance programs, we set the standard of excellence in dance instruction. Our great dance heritage began in 1947 when one of the greatest dancers of all time, Mr. Fred Astaire, co-founded our company. He developed a practical, interrelated dance curriculum that embodied the fundamental principles of good dancing, flavored by his style and grace. Now, over 110 studios spread throughout the United States are teaching the ‘Fred Astaire way.’ Our studios offer all kinds of dance instruction – from ballroom to country western to salsa to nightclub dancing – for all ages and abilities through private, group, and practice lessons. At every Fred Astaire Dance Studio, learning how to dance is always easy and fun! In your very first lesson, you’ll learn the basic elements of which all dance patterns are based and within hours, you’ll be ready to dance! Don’t put it off for another moment – walk into your local Fred Astaire Dance Studio and dance out!
