All About Dance in Lakewood Ranch: Fred Astaire's Central Dance Challenge Starts Today!!
With Lakewood Ranch being the 2nd best selling community in the U.S., you might hear lots about golf, polo, boating and fishing when looking at the list of activities offered. Now with the advent of popular shows such as "Dancing with the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance" you can add dance sport to the list of activities being sought by our residents!
Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Lakewood Ranch has become a popular spot for those who want to learn to shake it like Julianne Hough, Lindsay Arnold, or Maks Chmerkovskiy. No matter your age or your single status (no partner is required to learn), Fred Astaire offers private and group dance lessons for beginners as well as dancers who want to join the competitive world of dance!
