When Can I Take My Lessons?

How Soon Will I Be Able to Dance?

You will be up on your feet and dancing in your very first lesson! We start your first lesson by teaching you the basic steps of the most popular dances so that, within a very short time, you will have enough confidence to get on the dance floor.

Do I Need a Dancing Partner?

No partner needed! We offer classes for individuals and couples. Whether you have a partner or not, one of our professional instructors will guide you.

Do We Have to Change Partners in Group Classes?

Although rotating partners have been proven to help your dancing, rotating is by no means mandatory. You and your partner are free to stay with each other for the whole class, just be sure to let the instructor know that you would like to stay with your partner at the beginning of class.

What Types of Dances Do You Teach?

We teach a variety of Latin, ballroom, and swing dances, as well as wedding dances.

How Much Do Classes Cost?

Depending on the level of proficiency you want to have, how quickly you want to progress and, how well you pick up and retain the material, the cost will vary. Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Raleigh can personalize a program that matches your individual goals and budget. We also offer for new students two types of beginner programs at a special rate.

What Should I Wear?

You should wear something that is easy to move in and comfortable. Even though Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Raleigh does not have a dress code, most of our students wear what could be considered “casual”. Shoes are probably the most important thing to consider.

What Kind of Shoes Should I Wear?

We recommend you to wear comfortable shoes with “smooth” or leather that stays on your feet well. Shoes that have adjustable straps or lace up are perfect. Sneakers, rubber-soled shoes, and shoes that are too big could be a handicap for dancing. At some point in your dancing, you might want to invest in a pair of high-quality dance shoes. Our professional instructors can advise you on choosing the right pair.

What is the Age Range of Your Students?

We have dancers of all ages! From college students to people who are 80+, people of all ages are welcome at Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Raleigh!

I Have Two Left Feet…Can You Help Me?

Fortunately, we have yet to meet anyone with two right feet so yes, we can help! At Fred Astaire Dance Studio, everyone was a beginner at some point, even us! Feeling nervous about your first time is common. Our instructors are highly qualified and well trained at helping you overcome the first time jitters.
