$20 for Two Private Lessons, Two Group Lessons, and Two Dance Parties ($240 Value)
During private lessons, students saunter onto the dance floor for instruction with an energetic teacher. They then take their ballroom dance steps to a group session, where they adeptly twirl and glide alongside fellow students. Relaxed Friday-night dance parties allow students to practice what they’ve learned in the lessons with various partners, including instructors.
Fred Astaire Dance Studios
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
