Discover the Dancer In You
Our Introductory Special is a great way to take the first step into the wonderful world of dancing. Fred Astaire Dance Studio provides New Yorkers demand for excellence. Fred Astaire Dance Studio tailors your dance program, whether to prepare for an event, to master a powerful social skill or to become a competitive-level dancer. An overall knowledge of several dances is generally most beneficial, as it makes an individual more versatile and provides him or her with a greater vocabulary in any dance.
However, if you’re primarily interested in a particular dance, a program focusing on that interest can be tailored as well. Dancing gives you confidence in your own physical presence few other activities can provide. It extends beyond the dance floor. It will serve you forever in all other types of social and professional endeavors.
We find individual lessons are the best way to learn to dance. Each lesson is catered to the individual’s needs and desires. Lessons available one on one, with the teacher as your partner, or as a couple with a teacher, permit abilities and talents to be honed quickly and special attention to troubled areas can be addressed immediately.
The introductory offer consists of 2 40-minute private lessons for $85 per person. This is the best way for you to experience the Fred Astaire method of instruction, and become acquainted with our staff. It is also an opportunity for us to show you the value of our curriculum and teaching style while introducing you to social dances.
We highly recommend that you take the two lessons separately as the introductory offer is designed to show how much you can retain from lesson to lesson.
Practice parties are a really fun and low-stress way to get started ballroom dancing! They are held monthly and are as important as dance lessons in the learning process. Practice parties give you a wonderful opportunity to get more comfortable socially with the steps you have learned in your private lessons. By dancing with various partners including staff, other students and guests, you really start to “own” the dance!
Dancing in this relaxed environment eases any stress of dancing in front of other people and builds confidence for all your future dancing. And this is a great way to meet new friends!
It will last their whole lives long.
Gift Certificates are available in any denomination and can be used towards lessons, competitions or showcases. The Introductory Special makes a great stocking stuffer and it’s the perfect gift for the guy or gal “that has everything.” (It’s easy to wrap, too!!!)
