Dancing . . . can breathe new life into a tired soul; make a spirit soar; unleash locked-away creativity; unite generations and cultures; inspire new romances or rekindle old ones; trigger long-forgotten memories; and turn sadness into joy . . . . 1 Dancing in itself is pleasurable enough, but this
pleasure is easily multiplied many times over. All it takes is a few moments to discover and reflect upon the extraordinary significance of dance, both historically and today, and its powerful life-supporting, life-enhancing benefits.
Dance is an absolute expression of the whole human being. Fred Astaire Dance Studios (including our dance studio of Schererville) is the only dance company maintaining that concept at the core of its philosophy. We know that dance is an activity capable of enhancing all aspects of life.
Our knowledge of this value, acquired through many years of experience in teaching dance, is reinforced by expert research showing that dance is the one activity that can improve so many features of a person’s life: their physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being.
