About Us

Thank you for your interest in learning how to dance with Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Charleston. 

We look forward to meeting you and to helping you prepare for your wedding dance!

Each of our professional, certified instructors will be able to make your vision a reality...turning the dream that you have for your first dance as husband and wife into a memory that will last a lifetime for you, your friends, and your family.

 From elegant ballroom waltzes, to fun foxtrots, and exciting swings, your Fred Astaire instructor will choreograph the perfect dance that is just the right fit for your BIG DAY!

All of our wedding couples start out with our 40 minute Wedding Consultation.   During this first lesson, you and your instructor will listen to your chosen wedding song and begin to learn the basics of the appropriate dance.  You will also discuss the details of your BIG DAY so that your instructor can design a first dance that suites the style and personality of your wedding. This consultation is $80 for the couple.

After the initial consultation, your instructor will be able to help you plan the rest of your first dance preparation, depending on: the number of dances you would like to learn, your skill level, and the difficulty of the appropriate dance.  You may want to think about learning a couple of social dances as well so that you can dance together at the reception, but this also depends on how long you have to prepare.  Your instructor can help you figure all of this out on your first lesson! 

We can also help you choose a song for your first dance if you haven't been able to decide on one.  We can help mom and dad to prepare for their dances too!

Once again, we look forward to helping you give everyone at your wedding a first dance to remember. 

Please feel free to call our West Ashley location at (843) 769-0440 or our Mt. Pleasant studio at (843) 884-1344 with any further questions,

or when you are ready to schedule your Wedding Consultation.
