My husband and I started taking lessons in October, 2006. I always wanted to take dancing lessons. We started with introductory classes on the basics of social dancing-and we have been dancing ever since! Dance lessons are our “date nights” and we always look forward to learning new dances and steps. There’s no more excuses at parties and we have never had so much fun! We absolutely adore the staff at the Fred Astaire studio in Durham, NC. They are amazing dancers and teachers and they truly care about each and every student regardless of age or ability. They are the best!

I’ve always loved watching ballroom dance on T.V., but I never imagined that I could one day do it myself. Looking through the yellow pages in November, 2007, I found the Fred Astaire Dance Studio and called to schedule my first Introductory Lesson. Almost a year later I am now coming in at least two times a week, I’ve performed at studio showcases and I’m currently preparing for a regional competition. The best part is I’m having the time of my life! I would recommend Fred Astaire in Durham, NC to others who are interested in taking ballroom dance lessons for so many reasons and here are a few…The quality level of all the instructors and visiting coaches is impressive! Also, everyone is friendly and welcoming! A visit to the dance studio always leaves me in a good mood and with a sense of accomplishment!
