The first Fred Astaire Dance Studio was opened in New York City in 1947 on famous Park Avenue. Today, numerous Fred Astaire Studios are located in cities across the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. A world-wide network of studios has also been established in Europe, South Africa and Australia.
Fred Astaire Studios are franchised to individual owners who are required to maintain the highest standards of excellence. We, who have the privilege of carrying the trade name, Fred Astaire Dance Studios, are immensely proud to do so.
