The cadre of expert instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio honours the legacy of dance legend Fred Astaire, who founded the first of his eponymous studios in 1947. Students seize the beats of enduring dance styles boasting vibrant worldwide communities, such as swing, salsa, Viennese waltz, merengue, and rumba. Two half-hour private lessons get hoofers moving confidently under a certified instructor’s safekeeping, and the group class lets pairs whirl through 40 minutes of tandem rug cutting. When pupils are ready to test leading and following technique on partners or unsuspecting bystanders, a 90-minute dance party further cements skills and advances the art of both foot and lip conversation. Peruse the schedule for class and party times.
