How we teach our students

At Fred's teaching is on a scholastic basis, and degrees of dancing achieved are varied. Instruction progresses through: Student Introductory & Variety Programs, in Bronze, Silver, Gold, Gold Bar and Gold Star Standards. This system is called the Medalist System and is used worldwide. Courses are designed for people desiring instruction in either Social or Competition Styles. Additionally, we utilize a comparative style of teaching, which enables students to learn the skills needed for dancing in the most efficient way possible. Our goal is to help you get out on the floor dancing as soon as possible.


Our Instructors

Our dance instructors are professionally certified to teach you the right way! We know there is a difference between "dancing" and "taking dance lessons", so we design all of our programs around each student individually to have you dancing at the level you desire in as short a time as possible...


Introductory Dance lesson!

Everyone learns to dance for different reasons, so we offer you your first lesson dance evaluation free of charge. On that session we'll teach you the basics to what you'd like to learn, and as well, your instructor will be able to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses based on how you learn. We can then help you to plan to where we can get you in the next few lessons, depending upon how good you would like to become. We will personally design the course best suited for your goals and desires.


Private lessons

Private lessons, the core to our teaching at Fred's are the best way to learn. You will be able to learn at your pace and be given all the important techniques as you are ready for them. Private lessons allow you to develop a dance style that fits your personality, and work on various dances and styles at once so that you can hold your own in every social situation. Convenience is the greatest benefit of private lessons...we can schedule them as it fits your time table.


Group classes

Group classes supplement your private instruction. They allow you to practice the steps you have learned in a controlled environment, work on your lead and follow with various partners. Typically we have at least one beginning, intermediate and advanced class in each different style each week. Our schedule varies on a monthly basis, so call or email today to see how soon we can get you started.


DVD Studies

This method of instruction often reduces the time it takes to learn. "One picture is worth a thousand words". DVD study is quite popular with many students and is included free of charge with any of our programs.


Practice Parties and Nightlife.

Practice Parties are "tops" at the studio. You can come to socialize and give your steps a try before going out on your own. Our teachers are there to help you with your floor craft and just "let loose" in a dance studio/lesson atmosphere. We typically hold one practice session per week. Call or e-mail us to find out when the next one is. There is no need to wait for a F R E D'S event to start using your dancing...Social dancing is everywhere! Once you learn to dance, you will find that you are using your dancing in places you never expected...weddings, street fairs, bars, dance ballrooms, concerts and parties!



A showcase is a one-day event where students present dance routines with personalized choreography. These routines make an exciting addition to your Medalist Program because they allow you to develop showmanship and musical expression along with your social dance skills.


Dance sport/Competition

A Dance Sport Competition is an exciting one, two day, or even a week event. This requires specialized dance training to polish and perfect choreography, technique, character and style. F R E D'S continually promotes competitive level social dancing not only through an instruction, but through sponsorship of Dancesport shows, exhibitions, and lecture/coaching series by the top competitive dancers of today.
