Fred Astaire Middletown Reviews

See what others are saying about the dance lesson experience at Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Middletown

“Last year we had an upcoming wedding so my wife and I thought it would be a good idea to try something new and take a few dance lessons. Well, the wedding never happened, but those few dance lessons turned into over 6 months of dance lessons because their instructors are phenomenal. We had such a great time learning something we never imagined we would do. Unfortunately COVID struck, but Andrew (the owner) went above and beyond to ensure the safety of the instructor and us: temperature checks, masks, gloves and only one appointment at a time in the building.

Annie is a fantastic instructor! She is professional, but more importantly we didn’t feel any pressure when making mistakes. She is very kind and PATIENT because when you’re learning to dance, you’re going to look awkward and make mistakes. If you’re looking to challenge yourself and get in better shape while having a great time, give them a call! They both are passionate and dedicated to their craft and it shows.” -Middletown Student

“Andrew is an excellent instructor. His energy will carry you through any step. I love the way he explains the correct way to move.” Andrea

“Highly recommend this dance studio! The instructors are amazing! Very dedicated to teaching while creating a fun, welcoming atmosphere. They have taught me so much and helped me achieve and even exceed my dancing goals and dreams. My fellow students are awesome too. I have made lifelong friendships here!” -Lynne

“I have been with the dance studio Little over a year and I have learned so much… the instructors are fantastic everybody is so friendly and it’s so much fun. Never thought I could do this but I actually pulled it off and it’s absolutely the best decision I ever made to join ballroom dancing with a great dance studio.” -Dena

“My wife and I started taking lessons (initially just) for our first dance two years ago. We loved it so much that we’ve continued and ended up doing a competition! We’d highly recommend FA Middletown for anyone in the area looking to start up dancing!” -JP

“A best kept secret of Middletown! With talented and dedicated instructors, a fun atmosphere, and welcoming environment it can’t be beat! If you want to learn to dance just for fun, for fitness, or even competitively, the studio can accommodate your goals.” -Lisa

“Friendliest dance studio around! Love, love, love this place! The instructors are patient and kind, in addition to being beautiful people inside and out. The people who go here are fun and friendly. I’ve been dancing here for over 5 years, for fun, and it’s far exceeded my expectations. I’ve made a ton of new friends and most of all can hold my own on the dance floor! Try it!” -Barbara

“I’ve been a student at Fred Astaire Middletown for over a year now and highly recommend the studio. My private lessons have been excellent (thank you Annie) and the group classes have been great as well (thank you Annie, Jolene, and Andrew). The Friday night dance parties are the highlight of the week with the best ballroom songs and dancing with my fellow students. Give them a try!” -Don

I started dancing here six years ago and it’s thanks to the wonderful experiences that I’ve had here that I’ve... continued to dance with such passion and joy. All my teachers along the way—Chris, Annie, and Andrew—have helped shaped me as a dancer, and I will always be grateful I decided to give it a try. From dancers who are just looking to have fun and learn basic skills to those who want to compete at the highest level, there is a place for you here.

Go take a lesson! You won’t be sorry 🙂

We love our lessons with Annie, she keeps us on track and makes us feel wonderful. She is very patient,talented and a... great personality. She is very informative about the studio. She and the entire team is a pleasure to be around! Eddie is awesome too he is funny and easy to be around. He corrects you in such a graceful funny way that makes my boyfriend and I feel comfortable and not awkward at all. Martin is just the cutest thing ever. You can feel his passion for dancing though him. I love how they all work as a team. Makes us feel very comfortable to go to any of them. Friday nights are so much fun and we learn so much.read more
