Fred Astaire North Canton Ballroom’s schedule of Tuesday–Saturday classes invites couples to join encouraging, relaxed group lessons where that can learn moves such as the cha-cha or foxtrot, providing an easy way to jazz up morning walks to get the newspaper. Classes welcome dancers of all skill levels, focusing on basic steps and helping duos progress to advanced techniques at their own pace. Group practices provide a social setting where tandems trot out their new techniques while teachers stand ready to offer advice on twirling, toe tapping, and flossing between toes each night.
