The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legend himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through dance lessons. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form using their expert eyes. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic ballroom, 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 and demonstrations.
