The husband and wife duo of Chad and Joanna Lessard boasts an impressive resumè of performing with stars such as Edyta Slowinska and dancing as Fred Astaire National Rising Stars and Open 10-Dance finalists. Together, they put this experience to use by introducing students of all ages to ballroom and Latin styles during private lessons and no-pressure group sessions.
Students shouldn't worry if they don't have a partner, as the Lessards do not require them to have one. See the class schedule here.
Fred Astaire Dance Studios
The consortium of professional and certified 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, certified 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 foxtrot 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.
