The Fred Astaire Curriculum
Originally inspired by Fred Astaire’s superb style of dancing, Fred Astaire Dance Studios’ ballroom dance curriculum covers the full range of American, Latin-American, International Style, Exhibition/Theater Arts dances and more. World famous dance champions and registered members of the Fred Astaire International Dance Council continually study and review our curriculum, to ensure that only the finest, most up-to-date programs are offered to our students. Our unique teaching method includes a three-tiered system of regularly scheduled private lessons, group classes and practice parties.
Private lessons, with one or more dance instructors, give you the specialized and personalized attention to look and feel confident on the dance floor, while developing the ability to lead or follow any partner. We move at your pace, perfecting and polishing your dancing all the while.
Group classes complement your private lessons, because this is where patterns, technique, and style are learned. Group classes also enable you to meet other students with similar dancing goals, develop balance, and learn the mechanics of dancing.
Regularly scheduled practice parties complete the information taught in your private lessons and group classes. At Fred Astaire Dance Studios’ practice parties, we turn down the lights, turn up the music, and enjoy time dancing with different people in a relaxed social setting. Practice parties help you “put it all together”, aid with music identification, and help you learn how not to run into other people on the dance floor. Practice parties are a great (& FUN!) way to apply what you’re learning.
The Fred Astaire Trophy System
The Fred Astaire Dance Studios Trophy System offers an easy way for you to track your progress while you enjoy dancing! Our Beginner and Social Foundation Programs teach newer students the step patterns and techniques to move comfortably around the dance floor. From there, students can progress to the Bronze Trophy Program (our most popular!), which enables students to dance on any size dance floor, to any music, with any partner, and feel comfortable and confident. From there, students can continue to the Silver Program and then all the way to Gold!
Social dancing is one of the most popular pastimes in the world – enjoyed in every country, by people of all ages. In the art of getting to know and getting along with people, dancing is a genuine social advantage. The good news is that because dancing is a natural form of human self-expression, every person is a potential dancer! At Fred Astaire Dance Studios, you’ll find that learning to dance, (like dancing itself), is filled with exhilaration and a sense of accomplishment. As you begin to master this timeless art, you will come to realize the countless social, physical, emotional and aesthetic benefits of dance. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned ballroom dancer, our staff will do their very best to bring out the dancer in you, and help you achieve your dance goals. And you’ll have so much fun along the way, we know you’ll want to keep coming back! Contact us today, let’s get started!
