I'm not a ballroom novice. I have experience and am looking for a good studio to brush up my technique and find a dance partner. This lesson was okay. The dance packages are way too expensive and they only have practice parties once a month.
This place was pretty great. As everyone warns, they do try to sell you on a package of lessons, which is to be expected. However, they were not pushy about it, and even only doing 2 or 3 lessons we felt prepared enough for a short first wedding dance routine. All the instructors we worked with were great...but be advised you will likely have a different person each time.

About Fred Astaire Dance Studio
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
