I'm very excited to announce that the Fred Astaire Dance Studios "Online Dance Lessons" program has just been released this morning. Currently, our Bloomfield Hills studio has 10 "free" dance lessons you can take while staying at home. They are available to everyone to enjoy, not just our FADS students. There is a variety of lessons available from: warm-up & exercise, line dances to technique. We even have a dance lesson for our Dance Mobility dancers. They can be taken by beginners that have always wanted to try ballroom dancing to competitive students, from adults to kids, if you have a partner or you are just by yourself. More will be added every day. Also, if you click on "all course" from our link you will find currently over 68 lessons available from FADS studios and coaches from all over America. Most are "free", but some are paid lessons. The money received from the paid lessons will go to the instructors and studios that produce them to off-set their not being able to work. Check it out! Click on the link below, sign-up and remember #LifesBetterWhenYouDance #FADSfamily Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay Positive
