Events

Ballroom Dance Competition events are an important part of every Fred Astaire Dance Studio’s calendar. At Fred Astaire National and Regional Dance Competitions, our students meet, mingle and compete with other student dancers to feel accomplished and confident as dancers. These glamorous dance competition events are held in resort venues across the country, and give you inspiring opportunities to travel, watch, and hone your own dancing skills in a supportive and exciting environment. A variety of other dance events – such as showcases, spotlights, themed dance parties, coaching sessions, dance-themed charitable events and more are also offered throughout the year, to encourage social interaction, help you apply what you’re learning and make your dance lessons experience even more exciting, fun and rewarding. Participating in these events gives every FADS student and student/instructor team the opportunity to progress more rapidly in their dance endeavors, to enjoy fabulous vacation destinations and venues, and have lots of fun along the way!
