What You'll Get
Discover a better way to impress the crowds at swanky social functions than by singing Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde in its entirety. For $18, today’s Groupon gets you two private, 45-minute dance lessons in your choice of ballroom style and one practice party or 45-minute group class at Fred Astaire Dance Studio (up to a $115 value). Come for one-on-one training from highly experienced instructors and instill the subtle elegance of waltzes, fox-trots, tangos, and more into your dancing gams.
Specializing in Latin and ballroom dancing, Fred Astaire Dance Studio is a national studio. No matter how busy your schedule or how leaden your feet, Fred Astaire’s staff of professionally trained and certified instructors can tailor private sessions to match any dancer's skill level and specific goals.
Private introductory lessons ($95 for one class, with the first one often offered for free) last 45 minutes and acquaint students with the studio's spacious dancing environment before teaching the basics of ballroom dance. Following the conclusion of your second private session, you'll be ready for a practice party ($20) or a 45-minute group class (a $15 value), during which you'll trip the light fantastic with fellow students—without clumsily tripping on the light itself.
- They challenge you to learn new steps and with the group lessons offered, you can learn many various dances at your own pace. Best part is the instructors, friendly, funny, witty, charming and elegant with many being international champions. – lauhoffm123, CityVoter

About Fred Astaire Dance Studio
Dance icon Gene Kelly once said, “The history of dance on film begins with Astaire.” Since its founding in 1947, the Fred Astaire Dance Studio has continued to turn out dancers with the aid of a pragmatic curriculum that imparts Hollywood–quality footwork. Now taught at more than 140 studios, the curriculum teaches students diverse styles ranging from ballroom to latin to swing and salsa. Stratified by skill level, classes can take students on a journey from rudimentary basics through the foundations of social dance, and then on to more advanced moves, with a trophy system delineating each student’s progress. Dancers of all skill levels and ages can expand their repertoires with group classes, personalized one-on-one instruction, or special wedding dance programs that fortify couples for their first dance as newlyweds.
