Eat, Drink, Dance, and Be Scary!

We love October!

The weather cools down, there are festivals and holidays and our minds begin to turn toward indoor activities and a long, cold (but not lonely at Fred Astaire Dance Studio of West Hartford) winter.

We kick off the festivities on Friday, Oct. 6, with a day-long crafts fair. Stop by and take part. What’s your specialty? Beading? Knitting? Building bird houses? Come on in and have some fun with us. The crafts fair party begins at 6:30 p.m.

Who doesn’t like an Oktoberfest party? We certainly do. We hope you will be in the house on Friday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m., for beer, pretzels and tons of fun with social dancing.

We’ll be warming up for Halloween on Friday, Oct. 20, with our Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice party. Wear orange and bring us a pumpkin treat. Get ready for a BOO-tiful experience. We’ll dance and have a great time and get ready for …


Grab your costumes and join your favorite ghouls for a night of dancing at the studio at our fabulous Halloween party on Friday, Oct. 27. The fun begins at 7:30 p.m., and who knows when it might stop?

Also, mark your calendars looking even further ahead: We have our Regional Competition coming up Nov. 9-11 in Stamford as well as a Showcase Ball at the studio on Dec. 1.

We expect to see you … often. Come on out and join us for the best in ballroom dance!
