Welcome to our Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Brookfield.
There are a few things you should know about dancing at Fred Astaire.
First of all, there is no need to have a partner. Ballroom dancing without a partner? Yes! Your partner will be one of our highly accomplished teachers. Why? Because this guarantees you the fastest possible progress and most individual support you can get.
If you wonder why you can’t find a schedule of our private ballroom dancing courses, there is a simple reason. We have none! Every dancer gets his individual program, depending on individual abilities and goals. Together we create a mixture of private lessons, group lessons and practice parties that exactly matches your needs based on the Fred Astaire System. There are also customized bundles with special discounts available.
No equipment is needed! For your dance lesson you just wear comfortable clothes and bring clean and comfy shoes with you. That’s all you need.
We also offer classes for different styles of dancing. Check out Zumba® dance fitness or Dancing for Kids!

History of Fred Astaire Dance Studios
Today, one almost can’t turn on the TV or radio or, open a newspaper, magazine, or web page without hearing a mention of Mr. Fred Astaire in reference to dancing. He has left a lasting impact on the world and when people think of a dancing legend, Fred Astaire is the first to come to mind. We are proud of our great dance heritage which began in 1947 when the Master of dance himself, Mr. Fred Astaire, co-founded our company. Mr. Fred Astaire, considered to be the greatest multitalented dancer of all time, wanted to establish a chain of studios under his name to make sure that his techniques would be preserved and passed onto the public. Mr. Astaire was instrumental in the choice of dance curriculum and instructional techniques. With the opening of the first Fred Astaire Studio on Park Avenue in New York City, Fred Astaire brought his immense talent out of the glamour of Hollywood and onto the dance floors of America and the world. “Some people seem to think that good dancers are born.” Astaire once observed. “All the good dancers I’ve known have been taught or trained. To me, dancing has always been fun. I enjoy every minute of it. I am glad that I can now put my knowledge to use in bringing personal confidence and a feeling of achievement to so many people.” Today, numerous Fred Astaire Franchised Dance Studios located in cities throughout North America and internationally, are required to maintain the highest standards of excellence through our National Dance Board and Fred Astaire Franchised Dance Studios curriculum certification. Although Mr. Astaire is no longer with us in person, our studios have produced a wealth of amateur and professional dancers who are living embodiments of his style and grace.
