We’re Taking It Back To The Roaring 20’s!

Few eras in American history seemed like such good fun as the Roaring ‘20s. Speakeasies, parties, jazz, skimpy dresses, dancing – what a blast!

We’ll recreate that fabulous bygone day at our Great Gatsby Party on Friday, April 28, from 7-p.m. at the studio (1459 North Dale Mabry Highway). Are you ready for this rewind in time and a visit to the Roaring ‘20s?

Dress in your best 1920s or Great Gatsby themed attire — flapper dress, suits or slacks! Beverages and hors d’ oeuvres will be served. You know our party would never be complete without the social dancing and a special group class that begins at 7 p.m. Contact the studio or your instructor for more information about this event that also celebrates our first anniversary!

Gatsby, of course, was the central figure of the 1925 novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Gatsby’s posh parties at his country estate were all the rage of that day.

Can you guess what the most popular dances were during this exciting time in America? The most popular dances during the decade were the foxtrot, waltz and American tango. From the early 1920s, a variety of eccentric novelty dances were also developed including the Charleston, and Lindy Hop.

You can learn all of those and more at your Fred Astaire Dance Studio of North Tampa, where we proudly offer the finest in ballroom dance instruction in private lessons and group classes. Join us for our Great Gatsby Party on April 28th!
