More Common questions
Am I too young/old?
Dancing is enjoyed by the people of all ages. Our youngest students are 7 years old and the oldest are well into their eighties. As long as you can walk, you can dance. Since our programs are custom-tailored, you will be learning at a pace comfortable for you. Dancing brings with it a host of health benefits as well. But if you do have any health reservations, please consult your physician first.
Do I need any experience?
No. At Fred Astaire, our Instructors make learning to dance fun and exciting at any level.
Do I need a partner?
No. Here, at Fred Astaire, we teach both singles and couples. If you come in as one of our single students, your instructor will be your partner for your private lesson. Our practice parties and group classes will provide plenty of opportunity to meet other students with the same interests and goals.
How do I get started?
Please fill out the prospective student questionnaire and we will get back to you at a convenient for you time.
Do you sell dancing shoes?
Yes we do - for both the ladies and the gentlemen.
Will my lessons be at the same time every week?
Not necessarily. In order to accommodate your busy schedule, we attempt to be as flexible as possible. We also recommend that you schedule your lessons a few weeks in advance in order to reserve your preferred times.
