In 1947, on New York City's Park Avenue, the first Fred Astaire Dance Studio—cofounded by the eponymous toe tapper himself—opened its doors to the public. More than six decades later, now boasting schools across North America, the dancing institution still adheres to the legendary Mr. Astaire's curriculum and instruction techniques.
Specializing in social ballroom and competitive dances, the schools' current consortium of professional instructors shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through dance lessons that span from classic ballroom and foxtrot romps to the modern steps of salsa, swing, or mambo. In addition to classes, the studio hosts social practice parties where up to 40 students hone newly acquired rug-cutting capabilities. As foot-charming music blares from the speakers, instructors work to cultivate a lively social setting where each guest can dance, mingle, and surgically correct their second left foot without fear of embarrassment.

Couples easily chat while swaying slowly through fox trots before the long mirror at Social Life Dance Center, or become a whirlwind of limbs led along by salsa music. The sleepy cry of steel guitars fills the studio during two-step lessons, and cha-cha, rumba, and a host of other Latin dances torch calories and forge new friendships in group lessons. During private lessons, instructors slowly adjust the footwork of pupils to prepare them for wedding dances, competitions, or new jobs stomping all the bubble wrap at an office.
