Our dance curriculum covers the full range of American, Latin-American, International and Exhibition/Theater Arts style of dancing.
The Fred Astaire curriculum is the most fully documented bank of dancing knowledge available in the world.
Originally inspired by Mr. Astaire’s superb style of dancing, current world famous dance champions and registered judges on the Fred Astaire Dance Board constantly study and review our curriculum to make sure that only the finest, up-to-date programs are offered to our students.
We offer 3 dance programs including, Basic, Social Foundation and Trophy. To learn about each program, please scroll down or jump into any section from the links below.
All beginner students start their lessons with a basic package designed for the novice dancer.
Basic elements in the common, popular social dances are introduced in order to determine a student’s learning rate and style, retention level, interests and goals.
Students generally try to get through this initial awkward level as quickly as possible and at least into the Social Foundation level where they will begin to feel more comfortable.
Social Foundation Program
A socially comfortable level, the Social Foundation Program is an individually planned and personalized dance program.
The student is introduced to a handful of step patterns and basic techniques of lead and follow, musical timing and blending, which allow them to have fun and hold their own in many social dance situations.
The Trophy Programs
The Fred Astaire Trophy Programs is a unique method of dance and teaching instruction. It’s an easy way for our students to track their progress while they enjoy dancing! Our Social and Advanced Foundation Programs teach beginner students the step patterns and techniques to move comfortably on the dance floor with any partner.
Providing structure while allowing for individual goals and interests, the Fred Astaire Trophy System is an exciting way for our students to gauge their progress in receiving the benefits from the investment they have made.
Depending upon the particular program and the progress to various levels of accomplishment, our students earn a coveted Fred Astaire Dance Studio Trophy, awarded at a Trophy Ball held semi-annually.
From there, a student can progress through our Bronze and Silver levels – all the way to the Gold and Supreme Gold!
