Even before there was “Dancing with the Stars” and “So you think you can dance”, dance was a hot topic in American Culture. Ballroom dancing has existed since the 16th Century, but really never arrived in America until the 20th Century. In 1917 Fred and Adele Astaire began dazzling audiences with their dancing routine.
The duo was cast in “Lady be Good” and “Funny Face”, both critically acclaimed. By the 1930’s Fred Astaire was paired with Ginger Rogers, and the duo danced their way through 10 most famous Hollywood musicals of all times. Mr. Astaire wanted to establish a chain of dance studios under his name, and in 1947 a great dance heritage began when Mr. Fred co-founded our company.
