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 fun lessons that span the style spectrum. Within their comfortable studios, low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques through personalized experiences, whether they're looking to enjoy a weekly date night, choreograph a wedding dance, or lose weight. 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.
