Established in 1990.
We are proud of our great dance heritage which began in 1947 when the Master of dance himself, Mr. Fred Astaire, co-founded our company. Mr. Fred Astaire, considered to be the greatest multitalented dancer of all time, wanted to establish a chain of studios under his name to make sure that his techniques would be preserved and passed onto the public.
Today, numerous Fred Astaire Franchised Dance Studios located in cities throughout North America and internationally, are required to maintain the highest standards of excellence through our National Dance Board and Fred Astaire Franchised Dance Studios curriculum certification. Although Mr. Astaire is no longer with us in person, our studios have produced a wealth of amateur and professional dancers who are the living embodiment of his style and grace.
Sergey was born in Ukraine. Before learning to ballroom dance, Sergey was taking boxing lessons and had no idea about his hidden dance talent. He stepped into a dance studio for the first time at the age of 12 – but not by his choice! His parents sent him to lessons. After only few weeks of dance lessons, it became clear that dancing was his true passion, and without hesitation, he traded his boxing gloves for dancing shoes. The rest is history! Competing as an Amateur throughout the Ukraine in both Latin and Standard, he became one of the top competitors in his division. He moved to St. Petersburg, Florida at the age of 20 and continued pursuing his love of dance.
in 2013, Sergey became United States National Rising Star Smooth Champion.
Since winning the most prestigious dance competition in the country, he continues to perform with his dance partner and shares his knowledge and love of dance with his students.
