teach our students
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 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
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, the core to our teaching at
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 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.
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
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
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.
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.
