- Three private lessons
- Two group classes
- One Holiday Dance Party on Fridays
For private sessions, singles or couples saunter onto the dance floor for instruction with an energetic teacher. They then take their ballroom dance steps to a group session, where they adeptly twirl and glide alongside fellow students. The Holiday-themed Dance Party on Fridays gives them the chance to show off their newfound skills, mingle with dance professionals and see student and professional dance exhibitions.
Fred Astaire Dance Studio
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds adults 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 cha-cha. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of tango, swing, or rumba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice provides a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
