    From the time you walk in to the time you leave you are welcomed, and encouraged no matter what your level of dance is. Goals are made together and progress is noticeable and acknowledged. Dance is taken seriously with structure but done in a way that is super fun! Highly recommend this dance studio!

  • Danni Straube

    With no dance experience going into my first lesson, I just planned to take a few lessons with my fiance to learn a few basics but am still dancing 4 months later and plan on continuing. The teachers make learning comfortable for any skill level and are very knowledgeable and customize your dance lessons for your goals. Everybody is welcoming and kind as well which makes a warm environment full of amazing people and friends!

  • Chelsea Jackson

    Love it!! Very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this dance studio for all levels of dancers

  • Laura Watson

    We have had so much fun taking lessons from this dance studio! We were skeptical to step out of our comfort zone and take a dance class – especially a ballroom dance class - and the instructors made us feel so comfortable, worked at our pace, had great customer service, and just made it an all together fun time. I highly recommend it!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We host and attend many socials and events throughout the year with our students such as, Thursday Night Socials, Regional Student and Professional Competitions, Social Outings out of the studio. Throughout the year, there are many opportunities with Fred Astaire Dance Studios to get out there and dance.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

We would recommend beginning with the Introductory Lessons to meet your instructors and see how you enjoy the studio. This is a great way try out the studio before making any future commitments. 

We receive the question, "What do I wear?" often. We recommend something comfortable yet nice. We recommend a button down, polo, slakes or khakis for the gentleman. For the ladies we recommend a nice top, blouse, skirt or dress pants. We advise not to wear tennis shoes because they tend to stick to the floor. If you do have a country western focus, you are welcome to wear your western wear. 

Many think you need a partner to begin dancing. We have many individual students that take lessons as their own hobby. Your instructors will be your partner at lessons and events.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

If you have a specific dance you would like to add to your dance program, let us know when scheduling your first lesson. If you are not sure what you like and what you do not like, do not worry about what you do not know. We will guide you every step of the way.
