We proudly serve Dedham, Westwood, Norwood, Canton, Milton, Dover, Needham, Newton, Wellesley, Boston and other surrounding towns.

After your Introductory Lesson we will sit down with you and come up with a plan that is personalized just for you.

The Fred Astaire System for Dance Lessons

At Fred Astaire Dedham Square we teach 3 types of lessons. Private, which is one on one instruction. Group, where 8-12 students work with 1 instructor learning the mechanics of a dance. Parties, where 30-40 people come to socialize and dance every Friday night. Each piece of our 3 lesson system for learning work together to help you learn faster and more efficiently than any other method available. Our friendly and encouraging staff will have you feeling comfortable and ready to dance in no time.

Private Lessons: Are scheduled anytime between the hours of 1:30pm and 10:00pm Monday through Friday and 11:15am to 5:15 pm on Saturday. Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Dedham Square excels at teaching people to dance because of our Private Lesson based programs. Private Lessons are the most valuable lessons, because of their individualized approach. On your private lesson your instructor will introduce new concepts of dancing one on one or as a couple. Having the information presented in this one on one format allows the instructor to focus on your needs and tailor the information to you. Every person learns differently and at their own rate. Private Dance Lessons allow you to move at your own pace without the pressure of a group, and develop a much deeper understanding of movement in a fraction of the time. On your Private Dance Lesson you can feel how each dance is supposed to feel through your teacher’s movement.

Group Lessons: Are prescheduled 45 min classes and are available to view on our calendar . Group Lessons will usually have 8-12 students and 1 instructor. Most Group Classes will be focused on one dance (with the exception of the beginner classes) and are designed to teach the “mechanics” of dancing. Balance, control, rhythm and coordination are especially prevalent in the Group Classes because you’re dancing on your own. You will also have the opportunity in Group Class to learn both the lead and follow part of the step. This is especially helpful to understand what your partner is doing while you’re dancing together.

Practice Parties: are a the practice for the big game! The atmosphere at the Party is similar to what you would see when you go out to use your dancing. Wether you’re dancing at a wedding reception, at a salsa club, a black tie gala, or specifically at a ballroom dancing event you will need to know how to navigate a floor. The party gives the perfect opportunity for you to…

Practice your moves with different people ( leading and following).

Practice dancing with other people on the floor (floor craft i.e.. navigation).

Socialize with other people (builds confidence and community).

Practice putting steps together consecutively to a whole song (blending and ad libbing).

just to name a few.
