As part of the management team at Fred Astaire Charlotte, these reviews were brought to my attention and I felt I needed to address these issues in a concise and understanding fashion. Derek and Andy, thank you so much for your positive comments! For those who have negative opinions, I truly apologize for anything we did not do to help you achieve your dance goals and appreciate you voicing your opinions so that we can make ourselves better.
As any long-term dancer will tell you, it takes a lot of time, effort and desire to become a really good dancer. Our studio tries to assist new students to discover where they wish dancing to take them in their lives, relationships and life experiences. I have been an instructor for more than 17 years and I know I still have a lot to learn about dancing! It is an ongoing process that never stops. That's why I love it so much!
Unfortunately, many people in today's society put too much pressure on themselves to achieve the quickest results with the least effort invested. I want it now! Drive-through mentality at its' best. Dancing is easy and fun when you take the time to learn it well. Just like ANYTHING else in life. The more time you put into it, the better you are.
We try to please every one of our students and let them meet their goals. Unfortunately, sometimes we fail. For those we did fail, I truly apologize. However, congratulations to those Thousands of students who have walked in , then danced out of our studio over our 50 years in Charlotte! Thank you all for your input, both positive and negative, allowing us to get better and fail less often.
Pros: People matter
Cons: You cannot always please everyone, but we try.
