Important Notice

Message to the Fred Astaire Dance Studios®Family

Dear Dance Family,

Fred Astaire Dance Studios® – Ahwatukee is thrilled to announce the re-opening of our studio on Monday, May 18th!

Please know that your health and safety have been at the foundation of our re-opening plan, which may continue to evolve as we follow CDC recommendations and guidelines.

Our ultimate commitment is to provide a joyous and welcoming environment for all of you while ensuring your health and safety, as we continue to Share in the Magic of Dance.

Here are a few of many changes you may expect when coming to the studio:

Monday – Friday 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM

Saturday and Sunday By appointment only

At this time, we offer programs, open, showcase private lessons in an in-person environment. We look forward to resuming our group activities and events sometime in the future.

Appointments available seven days a week.

We’ve expanded our services and now offer virtual, private, and group lessons. These will continue to remain available going forward. Please keep your eye open for our weekly virtual group lesson schedule, offering a wide variety of topics.

Please arrive at the studio 5 minutes before starting your in-person lesson. One of our friendly professionals will greet you and let you in. 

Lesson duration remains the same; The time in between will allow us to sanitize our facility and be ready to greet the next group of students.

We’ve temporarily limited the number of private lessons available at the same time to a 75% capacity.

Everyone is required to wear a face-covering while on-premises and wash (sanitize) their hands upon arrival.

Students, team members, and visitors will have limited to no access to most common areas. Our changing rooms will temporarily be unavailable.

Following each lesson time, studio surfaces, frequent touchpoints, and all commonly used areas will be cleaned and sanitized.

Hand sanitizer will be made readily available throughout the studio.

A brief health check questionnaire will accompany every in-person lesson confirmation; please take a moment to fill it out and return to us before your arrival to the studio. We’ve simplified this process by sending these with a digital signature option, allowing both computer, tablet, or smartphone digital signature.

If you experience any of the Covid-19 symptoms, please let us know by calling or emailing the studio. We will gladly reschedule your lesson.

We will continue to look for ways to minimize frequent touchpoints. We are switching to remote payment systems, paperless enrollments, and information sharing.

We recognize that these times wake a wide variety of reactions; risk tolerance is varied from person to person. We are committed to displaying the maximum amount of compassion, understanding, and support to all of our Dance Family Members as we transition into creating the “new norm.” We welcome and value any feedback that can aid us in delivering an exceptional and effortless experience.

Our North Star is our mission of enriching lives, and in these uncertain times more than ever, we find our certainty in our values and culture.

Our Team is looking forward to seeing you again on the dance floor!
