Important Notice

Message to Our Fred Astaire Dance Studios®Family

March 18, 2020

As we all follow the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Fred Astaire Dance Studios® wants you to know that your safety is our top priority. You are an important member of our Fred Astaire Dance Studios® family, and we are working to ensure the highest standards of safety, cleanliness, and service.

We are using helpful guidelines detailing best practices from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We have been provided information on how to identify symptoms of COVID-19, how to mitigate its spread and what to do if we suspect a case of COVID-19. We have been instructed to thoroughly clean and disinfect our studio each evening and as much as possible throughout the day, according to the CDC’s guidelines. We will continue to monitor this ever-changing situation closely, following sources including the CDC, WHO, and U.S., state, county and local health authorities.

Fred Astaire Dance Studios® is built on a culture of superior customer service, and we will continue to provide that level of service to you during this time. Our franchised studio locations and their team members are dedicated to delivering great dance experiences to you, and your health and well-being are essential to making dance excellence a reality. We understand you and your family have decisions to make, and we encourage you to consider the guidance provided by the WHO and CDC as you make them. If you are feeling ill, have been exposed to someone who is ill, or are in self-quarantine, please contact us to reschedule your lesson. If you are ill or cancel within 24-hours you will never be charged for a lesson. If you have any questions about your lessons or our  Fred Astaire Dance Studios® plans for addressing COVID-19, we encourage you to reach out to us directly for information at 563-332-1900.

Please do not worry if you need to change your plans. We want you to know that Fred Astaire Dance Studios® is here for you during this time, and you can rely on us when you schedule a lesson with one of our certified dance instructors.

We look forward to helping you experience the joy of dance at our studio soon.
