My husband and i have been taking lessons at Fred Astaire Dance Studio in South Windsor for over a year, and each week... we’ve learned something new! Between the variety of dances to learn, and technique and posture, each week is a lesson well spent. Ivanna has been great about working around our schedule and is always in a pleasant mood. The studio also offers a lot of great opportunities, whether it’s dance competitions, trips, or Friday group dances where we can fine tune our skills, moving around a dance floor. My husband and I get to share a hobby, we’ve learned a lot, and each week we get better!read more

Dancing is a great skill to have in your toolbox, and since starting at Fred Astaire in South Windsor, my then... girlfriend (now wife) and I have really been able to enjoy dancing with confidence at weddings. It’s also a good hobby for my wife and I to enjoy together. Ivana (our instructor) is always pleasant and upbeat, and able to adapt to our learning speed, interests, and our busy lives. Although I still feel like I have a lot to learn, when I look back on where we started, I’m stunned with how far we’ve come.read more

Taking lessons at the south Windsor Fred Astaire is amazing! They are always doing fun parties and there are different... decorations every week we go there! The instructors are so patient and friendly. I would recommend this studio to anyone who is looking to take lessons and feel comfortable about being brought out of their shells!read more
