Established in 1947.
We are proud of our great dance heritage which began when the Master of dance himself, Mr. Fred Astaire, co-founded our company.Mr. Fred Astaire, an American icon, wanted to make sure that his techniques would be preserved and passed onto the public. Mr. Astaire was instrumental in the choice of dance curriculum & instructional techniques. With the opening of the first Fred Astaire Studio on Park Avenue in New York City, Fred Astaire brought his immense talent out of the glamour of Hollywood and onto the dance floors of America and the world.Some people seem to think that good dancers are born, Astaire noted, but all the good dancers I have known are taught or trained. Although Mr. Astaire is no longer with us in person, the professionally trained & certified staff at Fred Astaire Columbus Northwest strives to maintain the highest standards of excellence; developing confident & outgoing dancers through education, interaction and experience.
