I am a very satisfied customer of this Fred Astaire Dance Studio - in Old Saybrook. I always believed that I would... never be able to dance, but, because of the dedication, encouragement and excellent teaching staff of this studio, I have found a new sense of joy and self-esteem...which naturally comes from learning to dance!! The ballroom is lovely and the people are like a family!read more

I have been dancing since the end of 2016 and the studio is wonderful. The people you meet here become your second... family. The staff is wonderful, knowledgeable, conscientious to your learning. Dancing is something that everyone can do and learn and the staff make it a fun experience. It is a stress release, good exercise, and if you need something easy on your joints this is it! You can't ask for a better or more competent team to teach you - give it a try - you won't regret it!read more

If you are apprehensive about learning to dance - this is the place to go! My wife and I had no previous dance... experience, were nervous about starting and unsure of what to expect. That all changed when we met Raeleen and Thommy - they are outstanding instructors with unlimited patience, have the ability to alleviate all of your fears, connect with you on a personal basis, teach at a comfortable pace geared to your ability, provide a studio with a non-judgmental atmosphere and frankly make it really fun to dance. Our only regret is that we didn't start with Raeleen and Thommy sooner!read more

I love Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Old Saybrook! I recently took part in a Ladies' Night sponsored by the studio. ... The environment is warm and welcoming, comfortable and not at all intimidating. In addition to snacks, each of the instructors gave us a ten minute lesson to introduce us to the different types of classes they have to offer. Like the dances themselves, each instructor was different in their style and personality but all in their own wonderful ways and very proficient and professional. And it wasn't all dance - but movement that supports dance, such as Tai Chi and Yoga. I enjoyed the yoga so much that I attended the full class this past week and will be a regular going forward. Class size is small (for now!) which allows for lots of attention per student. The ten class ticket is a great deal and can be used for any of the group classes. Grab your partner or a friend and take a class. It will be fun, great exercise and increase confidence!read more

I had a great time when I went to a Ladies Night, found that there is much more to the studio beyond ballroom dancing.... The studio is beautiful and the instructors are amazing and very friendly. I felt very welcome. It was a great time.read more

From a man’s perspective.Having neither music nor a dance background I was anxious about taking dance lessons.... Publicly looking awkward was not my idea of a fun Friday night. However, prodding me forward was my frustration with sitting on the sidelines during social gatherings with dancing. Another high motivation to learn ballroom dancing was my wife, an excellent dancer, who reluctantly leads me around the dance floor. Meeting Raeleen and later Thommy calmed my anxiety. To this day, both exhibit that rare combination of nurturer and coach; they know when to flatter you, “Great Job!”, moreover, when to push you “Stop looking at the clock, you are not leaving early!”. I am working my way through the Bronze program slowly but surely and thoroughly enjoy the training and friendly atmosphere.One last thought, it is terrific to hear from my expert dancer wife on that rare occasion utter, “Oops, that was my mistake.”read more

My husband and I received lessons for our first dance from Thommy. Being a first-time dancer, I didn't even know the... basics to ballroom dancing. After giving Thommy a few songs we had in mind for our first dance, he combined them into one and started to teach us with easy-to-follow steps. He was incredibly patient and pleasant to work with. The dance lessons were the most fun part of our wedding preparations and we plan on going back for fun. Not just our first dance, but we found ourselves more comfortable dancing to any ballroom songs. Our first dance was one of the highlights of the wedding and we thank Thommy and Raeleen for making it happen. Not only do I recommend lessons for first-time dancers for weddings, I recommend Fred Astaire in Old Saybrook!read more
