Owned by American Star Ball Championship dancers Ruslan Meshkov and Alexandra Nema and staffed with experienced instructors, Fred Astaire Dance Studio understand the basic human pining to impress peers and woo prospective mates by exploding into a barrage of meticulously choreographed but equally soulful dance moves. You'll start out with a 30-minute private beginner's lesson where you'll learn the basic ins and outs of the dance floor. After, you can schedule your remaining private lesson and two 30-minute group dance classes how you like (the two private lessons and one group class are $33 based on one of Fred Astaire's intro specials, and the additional group class is $22.50). Two 90-minute practice parties ($24) provide an opportunity to make up for a disastrous prom-night face plant and subsequent nine-week rehabilitation. Fred Astaire lets you choose from 28 dance styles, including American styles such as foxtrot, jitterbug, and swing, and international styles like the cha-cha, pasodoble, and the tango.
