Specializing in Latin and ballroom dancing, Fred Astaire Dance Studio’s staff of professionally trained and certified instructors tailors private sessions to match any dancer’s skill level and specific goals. Private lessons last 45 minutes and acquaint students with the studio’s spacious dancing environment before teaching the basics of ballroom dance. Singles or couples come for one-on-one training with waltzing wizards and instill the subtle elegance of foxtrots and the sultry spiciness of the rumba into their dancing gams. In addition to the private lessons, students can choose to enter a 45-minute social group class, or tear it up at a 90-minute group dance party where they trip the light fantastic with fellow students without clumsily tripping on the light itself. Each location posts schedules for its group class and party times and locations online.
Though Fred Astaire Dance Studio sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Fred Astaire Dance Studio
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by the legendary dancer himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. 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 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.
