REVIEWS OF Fred Astaire Dance Studios IN Arizona

John Weaver

Sarah, Isis, Addie and Nedko are all great. Dance classes and events at #phoenixnorthfads are fun and enjoyable. You will have a blast with other students too.

Wonderful dancing, wonderful fun! Private lessons started with orientation on six dance groups (waltz, tango, foxtrot, cha-cha, rumba, swing), after that focused on how to do each dance well, with really fun steps. Group lessons well paced, not too short and not too long, entertaining and instructive. We can hardly wait for our next lessons!

I danced for 22 years before I decided to retire my dancing shoes and focus on my career. It has been difficult to find an outlet, especially for adults. Fred Astaire Phoenix North- Nedko, Sarah and Isis made it so easy to get back to what I love to do. Being so vulnerable, they made me feel welcomed, comfortable and challenged! Their staff is knowledge in technique and style for beginning to advanced level students. They have a beautiful facility and have fun social activities weekly. You can see the efforts they put into not only their events but in the progress and success of their students. I highly recommend Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Phoenix North to everyone.

I dragged my husband here when we were given a groupon. the staff is talented and friendly. We just kept coming back, and my husband even enjoys it now.

Sarah is amazing and so are all the employees at this location. I am so impressed with their skill set and patience and I wouldn’t recommend any other company to provide dancing services. Best experience ever!!

Brent Huczel

A fun and out-going staff!

I am new to dancing and started taking lessons here a few months ago. The ballroom is sizable with a gorgeous wood floor. The teachers are true professionals, teach proper technique, are committed to helping you progress, and take your personal reasons/goals for dancing into account. But perhaps the most striking thing about this place is the happiness that pervades. The instructors are happy, the students are happy, there is not a gloomy face in sight. The instructors provide only positive reinforcement and comment on ways you have improved. No one is ever belittled or scolded or made to feel bad in any way. In group lessons and dance parties, not only the teachers, but students who are further along than you are exceptionally patient as you learn new steps. I'm also impressed with the age distribution of the students--from teenagers to adults in their 70s, all age ranges are represented, and sharing a common desire to dance and to dance better. This is a fun place and the most fun I've ever had learning something new!

Bogey McDuff

Kacey is a fantastic instructor. I had ZERO previous dance experience. Now I can dance with my girlfriend without being terrified. Lessons and parties were fun, other guests were supportive, and it even helped our relationship dynamic.

Peter Wong

My wife and I have been coming here for the past 2 months and the experience has been great. The instructors and staffs are wonderful, very professional and friendly. We are true beginners and everyone there, including fellow students, are so helpful and friendly. If you are looking for a dance studio to learn how to dance or hone in your skills, you should give this place a try.

My wife and I had a blast at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio of North Phoenix. Nedko Petrov is an AMAZING instructor, had us laughing and grooving the whole time. We really enjoyed the dance lesson. Now I don't step on my wife's toes hahaha.

The instructors are great, very personable and will help you accomplish your goals in dancing. The practice parties are really fun and a great way to help you get out of your comfort zone in social settings. Overall phenomenonal experience at the North Phoenix Studio.

Amber Bourassa

This place is awesome!!! It is truly the highlight of my week. I dont just consider it dance lessons. I feel like I am a part of a dancing family. Staff and students...everyone is so welcoming and patient with me. And NEVER miss a Thursday Practice Party. They are a blast!

Soledad Cross

It has been almost a year since we started with FADS North Phoenix, as beginners. Thanks to the great patience of our dance instructors, we have been able to make fair progress in dancing. The dance teachers have shown excellent skills and patience in guiding us. We are also accorded a very warm and receptive welcome by the staff. Hence, I would highly recommend the Studio for any future students considering enrolling in dancing classes.

Carla Bunting

I have taken 20 lesson and eager to sign up for more! I enjoy the elegant and sleek building. My professional ballroom instructor, Kacey Bicking, is friendly, pacient and makes me feel like I am really dancing! He is always willing to work around my schedule.

Veronica Hernandez

My fiancé and I have started taking dance lessons With Sarah and we are having the best experience. She took time to talk with us before getting started and helped us come up with a plan for our first wedding dance coming up next month. She is so talented and patient and the best instructor. All of staff is wonderful. Thank you Sarah for helping us get ready for one of the best moments in our lives.

Jareth Anderson

I am impressed at how fast Sarah could teach me some basic steps. I have had just a few lessons so far but can really feel the progress. Great staff and ambiance. Very energizing experience. It feels great to be learning from such high-caliber yet so friendly professionals!

Stacie Leigh

Wonderful place to learn dancing and the staff make you feel right at home! Thank you for bringing light back into my life!

Brian McKennett

Margaret Wade

I would highly recommend the Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Phoenix North. Everyone is so friendly. We worked with Sarah to learn a dance for our wedding. She was very patient and encouraging. She really made sure we were comfortable with our dance. We had a lot of fun and are already talking about taking more lessons after the wedding. They really worked with our schedules and made sure we felt prepared to dazzle our friends and family with our cool new moves. We loved every part of our experience!

Amy Brown

In 2006, I took lessons with Fred Astaire Dance Studios and had the most amazing time learning how to ballroom dance! I was able to participate in my first competition and learn a choreographed routine for our first dance at our upcoming wedding in 2007!! Life got busy, and 12 years later I am back and loving it even more! The staff at Phoenix North are truly welcoming, super sweet, and fun to chat with! Walking in and greeting Isis is always so much fun, and she loves to discuss soccer with my 7-year-old son, which is adorable! Nedko and Sarah are extremely knowledgeable and helpful at each and every class I’ve attended thus far! I am super excited to see what my dance future holds at FADS Phoenix North! Thank you all!! Amy :)

Dale Welcome

Great instructors, great studio with an awesome dance floor and you will be up and dancing on the first night. Love it!

Joe Sko

Just started dance lessons today with my daughter. We had so much fun!! Still deciding on which one we want to concentrate on, but I really liked the waltz while my daughter loves the swing. $50 gets you 2 private lessons and you could join the party clasess throughout the month. The dance studio has a very high ceiling and the lighting sets the mood. They even have a minibar!! Very clean, pristine, and the instructors are super fun, patient and helpful. Planning on going here for a very long time!!!

David Bowler

We signed up for 2 private 1 hour introductory lessons. The instructor was very good and we had a great time, but the instructor ended our first lesson after about 40 min, the second lesson lasted about 35 minutes before we were asked to sign up for one of 2 very expensive packages that included 4 or 6 one hour lessons. We really wish it had been a better situation, we really did like it the short while it lasted. After seeing how short an hour was there, and the costs, we had to pass and are trying other studios.

Simu Kaneen

My husband and I really enjoyed our lesson's. What a friendly and professional atmosphere and the teaching was wonderful. I only wished there was more open times during the week and weekend to practice the social dancing aspect. I would not hesitate to recommend this school to my friends who are serious about dance.

James Sargent

Any amount of time spent at the studio is always the highlight of my week. I have always loved to dance, and wanted to learn more, but as soon as I started here, I surprised even myself at passionate I am about dance. If you decide to start dancing as well, I think you will have a similar experience. The owners, Sarah and Nedko Petrov, are beyond incredible and their love of dance is contagious. Both of them go out of their way to cater to you, and ensure you achieve everything you set out to accomplish. The other students are fantastic as well. The experience is much less like taking a class, and much more like being welcomed into a community. So do not be surprised if you simply come in to learn a dance for a special event, and walk out absolutely dying to learn more.

Callie Wilde

Fred Astaire is so amazing and I'm so happy that I am taking lessons there. The atmosphere is so welcoming and everyone there from the instructors to the other students are sweet and really incredible people and dancers and I am so thankful for being a student at Fred Astaire.

Benjamin Sunderland

This is definitely my Favorite place to dance. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The studio is gorgeous. I first came on a Groupon because I was curious about dance and now I am hooked. I try to come as much as I can

Dean Anderson

My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Phoenix North over the past few months; she has been a real joy to have as an instructor. We had specific programs that we wished to learn and she was able to accommodate us entirely, both from a experience level as well as a crazy life schedule. Very much recommend this studio to any individual / couple / group interested in learning how to learn or improve their dancing skills. DA

Steven Channer

Fun, and a great workout at the same time. We've been taking lessons since April and have learned so much - waltz, rumba, Texas two-step, even the Hustle and the Wobble. Sarah and Nedko are professional, personable, and foster a great working environment. Never have to worry about hitting my 10,000 steps each day of dance. Highly recommended!

Tricia Tillman

I loved learning from and performing with Kayse.

Erin Wickenkamp

My husband surprised me with a couple of lessons here for a date night. Our experience was so great! They have patient and fun teachers who make even the shortest visits worth your time and money. Excellent teachers and a great space. Highly recommend!

Denice O'Connor

Duchess Blazer

Michelle and I thought we'd try it out. Then, we kept coming back. Dancing together to the Two-step or swing added an extra spark on Saturday nights dancing. Try it the staff is the best. Fun

Nate Blevins

Knowledgeable instructor, but very high prices. Tried to push a 'discounted' package in which each 45 minute lesson cost $58. That means lessons are priced at $77.33 per hour. No thank you. I would be all for a $10/class bulk package.

Wesley Willard

I absolutely adore going to Fred Astaire Phoenix North. The owners Sarah and Nedko Petrov are so welcoming and kind. They make everyone feel at home and have such a fun time teaching. The rest of the staff is fantastic as well and we always have such a good time being there. If you are considering lessons or just stopping by to see if it is a good fit for you, you will not be disappointed!

Brian Snyder

My wife and I enrolled in preparation for the first dance at our wedding reception. Our instructor (Sarah) was amazing with the choreography, as well as making every effort to ensure that we were well prepared while having a great time! Our first dance was fantastic and will forever be a memory that Sarah helped create. We have also incorporated some of those choreographed moves from our first dance into general dancing as well. We have since continued our enrollment, with Sarah as our instructor, and do not see that changing anytime soon. Thanks so much for making our dance lessons such a fun, learning experience. We are far more confident on the dance floor and Sarah at FADS is the reason.

Bill Northup

We moved to Portland recently from the northeast, where Fred Astaire studios are more prevalent. We wanted to continue with that franchise syllabus, which provides a well-structured approach to all kinds of ballroom dancing. We were a little surprised that Portland's was the only one in the northwest states, but we were much more surprised by how fabulous the teachers are here. (We had several instructors in the northeast, all good, but none anywhere near as good as the ones here.) The other students are earnest and friendly, a great atmosphere for group classes. Finally, they've just moved the studio to new space conveniently near Bridgeport. If you're looking for lessons, start here!

jonathan reyes

This was a really good experience. I consider myself a lazy panda person, but Mr. Nathan got me and my fiancé off our feets and ready for a sweeet 1st dance. Big 5 stars from my side.

Alec Raines

Tim Klever

What a wonderful place. Sarah showed a man with two left feet how to dance. By attending the fantastic classes at Sarah and Nedko's school, I went from "can't dance" to "making people cry" at my wedding. If you're getting married, want to impress your friends, or just need to add some moves to your repertoire, this fantastic, loving, patient, adorable husband and wife team will show even the most novice of dancers how to dazzle a crowd. They made my special day even more special, and I can't thank them enough.

Stephanie Torres

The instructors at Fred Astaire are top notch! Alex helped me hone my technique and I learned a tremendous amount. Highly recommend the studio for anyone wanting to learn ballroom.

Colby Brown

Have been going to FADS Phoenix North since Valentines. What started as a surprise for my girlfriend has now evolved into a weekly activity that we love doing, the professional and super friendly staff at this location is noticeable right as you step through the door. Sarah and Nedko are very friendly and have great, warm personalities that keep you coming back for more dance! The weekly parties are also such a blast and its exciting to see the other people who take lessons all chitchatting and dancing! They structure your lessons off what you want to focus on and not just by style of dance, but goals you hope to gain from dance as well. We're very happy with our decision to take lessons here at FADS Phoenix North!

Diana M

This review is long over due. My husband and I have had the joy of taking dance lessons at Fred Astaire Phoenix North since they opened the beautiful studio in January. We started with a small package of lessons to tune up our dance skills, but we have had so much fun we keep coming back for more. After seeing us have so much fun dancing, both of our children asked to take lessons too! The practice parties are the highlight of their week and such a great opportunity for my husband and I to practice all that we learn. Our confidence on the dance floor has grown exponentially and the time we get to spend together as a couple is wonderful. Sarah, Nedko, and Isis are not only excellent dance teachers, they have made us feel like family. We highly recommend FADS Phx North!

With the blueprint of our dream first dance in mind, Sarah took that dream and made it a reality. Consistant professionalism, patience and understanding was shown though-out each lesson. This dance experience made our special day even more so and I couldn’t have been happier with the result. 10/10 would reccomed to anyone trying to do the same. Thank you!!

We signed up for two "private" lessons and a group lesson. When we got there the instructor proceeded to not listen to what we wanted to learn and only teach us what is in their introduction to dancing lesson program. Which is 10 minutes each on four different dances. So there was no time to actually learn anything or practice advanced moves. They made us learn dances we had no desire to learn. When I said I didn't want to learn this they replied that this is what we teach in this lesson. There many other couples dancing at the same time and they tried to teach us to Waltz while the song "I'm to sexy" was playing. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone wanting to seriously learn to dance.

Mary Ostrander

My husband and I are loving our experience at this studio! It is a gorgeous environment and provides plenty of room for instruction as well as a smaller practice floor. The staff is wonderful and supportive and Sarah is a patient and talented instructor. We have completed a few private lessons and attended a couple of practice nights and will be continuing with our lessons in the coming weeks. We have a lot of opportunities to dance during our travels and know that we are going to really enjoy our next cruise when we can get out on the floor and actually have a clue. :) We are excited to continue learning and honing our skills - it's so much fun! If you have considered trying dance lessons, I would highly recommend you try this particular studio with Sarah and Nedko. They offer a great "new client" package of 2 private lessons to get you started!

My husband and I are really enjoying our lessons at Fred Astaire Phoenix North!
