Introducing Nancy & Vasco!

We LOVE it!

We love being part of the family of Fred Astaire London and the bigger Fred Astaire Organization. Dancing is the highlight of our week. We drive over 1 hour to attend the practice from once to multiple nights a week. The instructors and coaches are the best you can ask for. We are looking forward to the next 15 years!

We've Taught over 20,000 People How to Dance!

  • Janet

  • I've never had so much fun in my life! The staff and students at Fred's are incredible! And it just keeps getting better. So much more than just learning how to dance. My personal transformation has amazed everyone. They keep asking what's my secret. Now you know!
  • Andrea

  • Fred Astaire London is my favourite place to be. The instructors are amazing and the atmosphere is welcoming and no matter what my day has been like, I always leave with a smile! The team are some of the most talented, encouraging, dedicated, and genuinely nice people you will ever meet
  • Pars

  • I’ve been dancing at Fred Astaire’s for 9 months now. It’s one of the best experiences of my life! Dancing had always made me feel very insecure but the teachers are not only great at teaching, they make you feel welcome and you never walk out of the studio with out having had more fun than you could possibly expect!!!
  • Bethany & Chelson

  • My Fiance and I started to take lessons for our wedding. The first time we walked into the dance studio we were a bit nervous since neither of us had taken dance lessons but we walked away with smiles on our faces. 3 months after our wedding we are still going and it is one of our favourite date night activities. Fred Astaire is like one big family and everyone there is there to support you and brings out a good time. 10 out of 10 recommend.
