About Fred Astaire Dance Studios

Great Beginnings
Our company began when Mr. Fred Astaire co-founded a chain of dance studios under his name, to make sure that his dance techniques could be preserved and passed onto the public… and on March 7th, 1947, the first Fred Astaire Dance Studio opened, at 487 Park Avenue in New York City. Since then, our network of worldwide dance studios has produced a wealth of amateur and professional dancers, who are the living embodiment of Fred Astaire’s style and grace. And since 1947, we have had the honor & privilege of improving the lives of our students, staff and everyone who is associated with our company, through the joy of lifelong dancing!

Track Your Progress
The Fred Astaire Trophy System is an easy way for you to track your progress & stay motivated, while you enjoy dancing. Our Beginner and Social Foundation Programs teach newer students the step patterns and techniques needed to move around the dance floor. Students then move on to Bronze, which will enable you to comfortably and confidently dance on any sized dance floor, to any music, with any partner. From there, you can hone your skills and talents within the Silver level, and then all the way to the Gold!

Our dance instructors complete the rigorous work required to become certified in the Fred Astaire Curriculum, a teaching method that not only teaches the mechanics of partner dancing, but also presents the building blocks of how people ABSORB and RETAIN information.
