Fred Astaire dance studio launching children’s program

San Diego’s largest ballroom dance studio, Fred Astaire, will be launching a children’s dance program in May 2014.

Specifically planned for children ages 7 to 14, Fred Astaire’s children’s program will feature a comprehensive three-month curriculum, culminating in an exciting end-of-term spotlight performance. Students will meet twice a week, working in pairs and individually to learn a variety of dance styles. Each day will be divided into two sessions: the first devoted to learning steps and techniques and the second focused on choreography for the final performance.

Ballroom dance provides children with a creative outlet, in addition to teaching essential life skills such as discipline, respect, fitness and confidence. Fred Astaire himself said, “The hardest job kids face today is learning good manners without seeing any.” Get your child started on the right foot and sign up today.

Since 1947, Fred Astaire Dance Studios has had one of the most effective systems for learning social dance in the world. The studio focuses on several aspects of dance such as footwork, patterns, partnership, confidence, animation timing and rhythm. Using its Conceptual Method of Teaching, the studio makes learning fun and easy through private lessons, group classes and practice parties.

The studio is at 8303 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego. Call 858-499-0180 or visit
