We love this place! Everyone is treated like family. They helped me and my Dad learn a father daughter dance for my wedding and it was so much fun! Everyone enjoyed watching us and we got endless complements. We looked foward to our lesson every week!

My father and I recently used Fred Astaire Dance Studio to take lessons for our father-daughter dance at my wedding. Paige was our teacher and could not have been more fun or easier to work with! My father and I had never had dance lessons before and Paige was able to choreograph a dance to the song we wanted and taught it to us within a month. Each lesson was so much fun and Paige made everything easy to follow. The entire Fred Astaire community was so supportive of us and welcomed us as if we had been dancing there for years. My father and I absolutely loved how our dance turned out and our guests were so impressed. I would highly recommend Fred Astaire for dance lessons of any kind! We would definitely return in a heartbeat!

It feels so good to be back in the studio and dancing! Larry and I are so impressed with the staff at FADS. They have gone above and beyond to meet all required regulations necessary to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Don’t hesitate to return to the studio to mix with friends and do what you love most - “DANCE!”

"If it doesn't look easy, it's that we have not tried hard enough. The higher you go, the more mistakes you're allowed. Right at the top, if you make enough of them, it's considered to be your style. I just put my feet on the ground and move around." - Fred AstaireWhen I first moved to Rhode Island, I was looking for a place to call home and where I can feel like I belong. I found Fred Astaire Dance Studio Warwick through Groupon and a series of trial and error looking for the right fit for a dance studio. I have tried many other dance studios, but Fred Astaire Dance Studio Warwick was the only studio that felt like a perfect fit. The dance studio offers several levels of ballroom dance for smooth, rhythm and contemporary styles. Each instructor brings forward their passion and love of dance with every lesson and group class, they love watching each student grow in confidence, creativity and skill as each lesson progresses. The studio provides a warm and welcoming environment for individuals of all different skill levels and personalities. I remember growing up watching movie musicals and wishing that I had the finesse and charisma that each dancer had. I love coming to Fred Astaire Dance Studio because I have found a community that I can call home, and a new family that is so supportive, helps one another and is full of fun and loving characters. As a very reserved and quiet individual around strangers, I have found that the studio has helped me to rebuild my confidence and creative side that I thought I had lost. With each group class, dance lesson, showcase and competition, I have found that my new family continues to grow in team spirit, love and support. I have loved growing as a student, and I look forward to many more dance lessons to come. I hope to see you at our next dance party.
