An atmosphere of kindness, warmth and fun awaits you at every Fred Astaire Dance Studio! It’s what our students tell us they notice from the first time they step inside – an energy and sense of “FADS community” that is 100% welcoming, non-judgmental, and truly joyful!
Since 1947, our passion is helping to enrich lives – physically, mentally, emotionally and socially – through the positive, transforming power of dance. There are thousands of reasons why people start dance lessons… and once we show you how much fun ballroom dancing can be, we know you’ll want to keep coming back. From wedding dance instruction, a new hobby or way to connect with your partner, physical and emotional health, improving your social life…
