REVIEWS OF Fred Astaire Dance Studio Richmond IN Virginia

Thank you Tommy and Mairi. After years of marriage (working together and raising our children) you have rekindled fun and romance that my wife and I felt dancing together when we first met. It was her birthday and (as usual) I had no idea what to get her. Then (out of the blue) she actually told me what she wanted. It wasn’t a bracelet, not a ring or a necklace…. she wanted dance lessons. My first thought was are you sure you don’t want a necklace? To be honest, I was a little intimidated by the thought of dance lessons. However, after meeting with you guys and discussing our thoughts on what perfect dance experience would be for us, and you guys developed a custom dance plan just for us, I was actually getting comfortable with the idea and looking forward to getting started. Now my wife and I have scheduled time together each week. Time just for us that we spend dancing. The dance plan you designed for us is perfect (salsa, meringue, the hustle and night club two step) and has been fun from the start. You guys are great dance teachers and your knowledge, constant encouragement and lead by example method of training is just what we needed. Our dancing is getting better, more fun and more romantic with every lesson. We look forward all week to our “dance get aways”. No work, no kids, no phones, no TV, and no computers. It’s time just for us. Thank you again!

I have been dancing at Fred Astaire for several months now, and love it ! The studio owners are so genuine and heartfelt in their work towards building a studio with a strong foundation that will continue on for years to come. The instructors are top notch professionals, and while they make us work hard, they always allow time for fun and laughter, to keep things balanced ! Fred would be pleased and proud, for sure !

Upon meeting Tommy and Mairi for the first time, I couldn't help but notice how strong their passion is for dancing. And the way they make you feel as a person is second to none. If you are in the Richmond area and wanting to learn to dance...Fred Astaire Dance Studio is the place you want to be. Anywhere else would be uncivilized!!!

As someone who was originally trained in a very vibrant (yet extremely competitive!) ballroom scene in the DC area, after I moved to RVA I was looking for a studio that can help me improve my dance technique without sacrificing having fun in the process. Mairi and Tommy of MaiTy Dance was the perfect solution. This powerhouse dance couple had me singing their praises from the start. From their amazingly polished website, to our productive (yet relaxed!) first consult to establish my personal dance goals and expectations, to the thoughtful welcome card (complete with unique branding!) that I received in the mail, MaiTy's amazing attention to detail, impressive professionalism, and raw talent are the perfect combination for the type of dance studio that can take the RVA dance community to the next level. Most importantly, for me personally, I appreciated that MaiTy's teaching style is efficient but encouraging. Even though I had been dancing for a few years, I liked how they pushed me to work hard (to limits I didn't even know I had in me TBH) in order to grow into a more refined, expressive dancer. Their faith in my potential and their support made such a huge difference. It is because of all of this that I can honestly say that I owe my renewed confidence on the dance floor to MaiTy Dance, and I can't be thankful enough.

My wife and I have been active members of Fred Astaire RVA since Feb. 2019. We started from a free dance certificate we received from the home and garden show. Honestly, we didn't know what to expect. Neither of us had danced before. But, after meeting the amazing instructors and fellow students we were hooked. We've been coming now three times a week for 5 months. The atmosphere is amazingly supportive. Although there are dancers of different levels, backgrounds and skill sets, everyone will feel at home. We were paired with Veronika and Kyrylo as our instructors and they have become not just our teachers but friends. We truly enjoy coming to dance not only to have fun, but to see them! Yet, through our group classes we have worked with Alina & Sasha as well as Alina and Yehor, who are all fantastic in their own right. For my wife and I this was a place we could have fun together, learn a new skill, and meet new people. I truly recommend it to anyone out there. It may be a bit out of your comfort zone, but I think you'll have fun and meet some good people.

Ariel Kinsey

Veronika and Kirill are my husband and my dance instructors at Fred Astaire. They are the BEST! Super kind, encouraging, and wonderful people as well as amazing dancers. They do an excellent job of explaining and showing you how to dance each step even when English is not their first language. I highly recommend you give dancing here a try. I had never danced before now, and I have really come to enjoy dancing with these great people. The whole staff here is excellent and we are very lucky to have all of them! You really can't go wrong here!!

Matthew Waters

I've trained with the head instructors, Tommy and Mairi, for several years and they stick out as a bright young couple with a great future ahead of them. I owe a lot of what I am now to these two and I promise you won't be disappointed with even the smallest investment of time.

Thank you Tommy and Mairi for giving me the best gift ever... dancing with my husband! We have always had fun on the dance floor at weddings or celebrations doing "our own thing" together BUT we have never been able to really dance together. Now, we can do the merengue, the hustle and my favorite, the night club two step. What a sweet slow dance! Thank you for making us not feel self conscious, for your comfortable teaching style, for all your skill and knowledge and for making it fun.


Antonina Larina

We started at Fred Astaire on Valentines Day! It was my husband’s gift to me. That visit changed our lives. We’ve become part of a great dance family, made friends and grew closer as a couple. I can’t say enough about our coach Kyryllo Kapustinsky and his wife Veronika Kapustinska - these two guided us from the very first steps to our first competition. They taught us with patience and confidence, and it amazes me to see the progress we made since we first started. Besides Kyryllo & Veronika, other coaches - Alina S and Sasha and Alina K and Yehor who taught us during group classes. Alina S also puts on a Sick LaBlast class - definitely check it out!


Wonderful experienced instructors, great atmosphere. Highly recommend taking lessons here!


Great place!

Tommy Bettin is a world class dancer, and I was thrilled to find that someone with his ability was teaching in Richmond!

Over the top excited about Tommy Bettin opening his own studio. This young man is the consummate professional. I have no doubt he and his wife are about to put RVA on the ballroom map.

Jennifer Howard

If you're interested in dancing this is the studio you need to be taking lessons at. It is the best studio in Richmond and is a complete step above the rest. The owners and instructors are the most welcoming and accommodating people I've ever met. They will make sure your dance experience is positive and fun. After your first lesson I guarantee you want to come back for more.

Anna Porter

Tommy and Mairi are amazing dancers and instructors...endlessly positive, patient, and fun! I highly recommend Fred Astaire Dance Studio to anyone in the Richmond area!

Mairi and Tommy are two of my most favorite people in the world. They shine from the inside out. They are genuine, kind, warm, and incredibly talented. They have the utmost integrity and always put their students first. They are passionate about what they do and their enthusiasm and excitement for dance is contagious. You will be inspired by this couple. If you are interested in learning to dance or grow as a dancer (and live in their area) you must get to their studio! Richmond is very lucky to have them.

My future husband, Chris, and I wanted something fun to do together during our engagement. We decided to try dance lessons, even though neither of us have ever danced before. Starting out, we weren't really sure what to expect, and were both quite nervous. Tommy & Mairi have been absolutely wonderful throughout our dance lessons. They listened to our concerns and choreographed a first dance that was comfortable for us. They are great teachers, and have been nothing but positive and encouraging to us, even when we'd repeatedly get the steps wrong! Chris and I could not be happier with our MaiTy Dance experience. Also, if you like dogs, they have a really sweet one!
