The consortium of professional 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 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.
Some workouts feel less like work than others. One undeniable example is Dance 2B Fit's Zumba class, which combines core-strengthening exercises with fun, international dance beats. The studio even offers a special Zumba class for kids ages 7–11, which brings games and cultural activities into the mix. And for adults looking to branch out from the high-energy dance workout, the studio offers Pilates mat classes and group workouts that focus on sculpting abs, glutes, and pinky toes.
