$39 for Two 30-Minute Private Lessons and Two Practice Parties for One Couple ($90 Value)
During private sessions, experienced instructors teach students any dance style from waltz to salsa. The dancers then take their new steps to a practice party, where they adeptly twirl and glide alongside fellow students. See the calendar for practice-party dates.
Fred Astaire Rockland Dance Studio
The consortium of professional instructors at the many 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.
