The corporate office of Fred Astaire Franchised Dance Studios has recently announced
the opening of the Cape Town, South Africa dance studio.
CEO and President Jack Rothweiler called the opening
“an exciting chapter for both the company and Cape Towners.”
As the second most populous city in South Africa, Cape Town is an indelible symbol
of the beauty and promise of post-apartheid South Africa.
Its logo – an outline of the majestic Table Mountain superimposed over a rainbow
suggests its historic mix of races and cultures. A popular tourist attraction, located on
the shore of Table Bay, Cape Town is a health-oriented city which takes social dancing seriously.
New franchisee Chris Sauer, along with wife, Gail, both South African natives,
will run the daily operations of the studio. Gail has over 15 years experience
teaching dance, and both have previously worked at FADS Sandton. As the newest
franchisees in the FADS organization, the Sauer’s already knew about FADS’ philosophy,
teaching methods, and naturally – its iconic namesake.
