Ballroom dancing is a far more efficient method of impressing the crowds at swanky social functions than by singing Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde in its entirety. Win your peers' foots and minds with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get two private 45-minute dance lessons in any ballroom or Latin style (a $180 value), two 45-minute group lessons (a $30 value), and two Friday-night dance parties (a $30 value) at Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Chagrin Falls (a total value of $240).
Armed with all of the grace and gumption of their nimble namesake, the instructors of Fred Astaire Dance Studio reach out with a private, 45-minute duologue to bring the basics of Latin or ballroom dancing to beginning ballerinettes in their choice of style, from Argentine tango to the waltz and more. Following the conclusion of your second private session, you'll be ready for two 45-minute group classes (class size 8–15) also in your choice of style, where you and your fellow students will finally figuratively trip the light fantastic, instead of literally tripping over errant spotlights. Finally, let your hair down and your feet run loose with two Friday-night dance soirees, where you'll get real-world dancing experience and meet other students, instructors, guests, and if you're lucky, an orchestra for the falling-in-love montage.
Specializing in Latin and ballroom dancing, Fred Astaire Dance Studio is a national studio and offers lessons in ballroom, swing, waltz, rumba, tango, and more. 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.
Fred Astaire Dance Studios
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 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 and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. 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.
