LET'S DANCE 2

We specialize in teaching brand new students, giving them confidence, a sense of rhythm and a love for dance!

What is a Private Lesson? 

We personalize each dance lesson based on your individual needs, desires, and goals, adjusting our teaching style to your ability, personality, and expectations. This ensures the most thorough and rapid learning process, all while keeping it fun, easy, and comfortable.

We accommodate each student’s schedule and create a custom tuition plan that makes each personal goal affordable.

What is a Group Class?

Group classes are a fun way to learn how to dance in a friendly social atmosphere

Learn basic techniques and get comfortable with the fundamentals of specific dances. We offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels to accommodate your dancing ability.

Have your own idea for a group class? Want to bring some friends together for a healthy fun activity? Want to do it on your time? No problem! Create your own group class!

Grab some friends and tell us what you want to learn and we’ll make it happen.

What is a Practice Party?

Practice parties provide an ideal setting for perfecting your freshly learned moves, meeting new people, and simply having fun. The environment is comfortable, welcoming, and perfect for developing your party skills. The Fred Astaire Tucson staff ensures that each guest is fully engaged in the party atmosphere and walks away filled with memories of a wonderful time.

New Ballroom Dance Stretch and Balance Class! Fridays at noon. 

Why is stretching so important in Dance?

The Strength, endurance and flexibility that are associated with Ballroom Dancing not only make you a better dancer but also can transfer to all different aspects of your life.

Come and learn exercises that will help to not only improve your balance in dancing, but also improve your flexibility.  The more flexible you are, the less likely you will be to pull a muscle or feel pain during your Ballroom Dancing. The class will be offered in a private, as well as group, setting.

Teaching Methods

Our unique teaching system includes a Three Tiered Method of regularly scheduled private instruction as well as group lessons and practice lessons:

PRIVATE INSTRUCTION

Private instruction, with one or more key teachers, gives you the specialized and personalized attention necessary to look and feel great on the dance floor, while developing the ability to lead or follow any partner. This is where we perfect and polish your dancing while moving at your own pace.

GROUP LESSONS

Group lessons are also a necessary part of instruction because this is where patterns, technique, and style are learned. Equally important, group lessons provide you with the opportunity to meet other students with similar dancing goals, develop balance, and learn the mechanics of dancing.

PRACTICE LESSONS

Practice lessons are a great practical application of what you are learning in your program because they complete the lesson information taught in our private and group lessons. Learning is one thing, but making the material work in a live setting while dancing with different people is quite another. The practice lesson will put everything together as well as aid in music identification and help you to learn not to run into other people on the dance floor. You can meet other students and practice your leading and following skills in a fun, relaxed environment! Teachers can tailor their private lessons based on how they see their students progressing.

Our Teachers

Our dance instructors are highly skilled and trained to help you learn using the unique Fred Astaire Method. Hailing from around the world, our teachers are actively competing, award-winning professionals and gifted educators. Many of our teachers have degrees in the fine arts and all have passed rigorous exams given by the Imperial Society of the Teachers of Dance and/or the Fred Astaire Curriculum certification.

Our Trophy System

We offer the Fred Astaire Trophy System as an easy way for you to track your progress while you enjoy dancing! Our Beginner and Social Foundation Programs teach newer students the step patterns and techniques to move around the dance floor. From there, a student can progress to either Social Bronze or Advanced Bronze. The main goal of either Bronze level is to get our students to the point where they can dance on any size dance floor, to any music, with any partner and feel comfortable and confident. The Social Bronze focuses more on social dancing and the Advanced Bronze is for students looking to progress beyond “just getting by”. From there, our students can move onto the Silver level and then all the way to the Gold!

Our dance curriculum covers the full range of American, Latin-American, International Style, and Exhibition/Theatre Arts dances. World famous dance champions and registered judges on the Fred Astaire National Dance Board constantly study and review our curriculum to make sure that only the finest, up-to-date programs are being offered to our students.
