Fred Astaire Dance Studios Colorado Springs North Enriches Lives Through Dance
Dance is the movement of the soul. According to the Harvard Medical School, the health benefits associated with dance may exceed those of any other forms of exercise. The love for dance and the benefits that come with it led Lawrence and Lyndsy Aguirre to establish Fred Astaire Dance Studios Colorado Springs North, in 2022, to build a community of people who enjoy dancing.
“Lyndsy started a career with Fred Astaire in 2009 and fell in love with it. I started dancing professionally in 2005, and that became a staple in my life. We wanted to share the wonderful benefits of dance with people, so we set our sights on being studio owners someday,” said Lawrence Aguirre, Co-owner of Fred Astaire Dance Studios Colorado Springs North.
From a simple first dance to social and even competitive dancing, Fred Astaire Dance Studios Colorado Springs North aims to improve lives through dance. “We strive to enrich lives physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially through the positive, transforming power of dance,” said Lyndsy Aguirre, Co-owner of Fred Astaire Dance Studios Colorado Springs North. The Dance Studio offers private, group, and practice sessions to teach people to become more comfortable and confident in social dancing.
The Evolution of Ballroom Dance
Ballroom dance is the mainstay of Fred Astaire Dance Studios. First introduced in Western Europe for the elite class in the 1800s, the dance style has evolved, with performers from all segments of society. Between 1910 and 1930, the ballroom dance in the United States adapted into what became known as the American style, categorized into Rhythm and Smooth sub-styles, influenced by jazz music and the iconic choreography talent of Fred Astaire, a great dancer who changed the face of the American movie musical with his style and grace. Standard ballroom dance includes Waltz and Polka from the 19th Century, and the dance has since grown to include other popular dances such as Tango, Bachata, Bolero, Cha-cha, East Coast Swing, Hustle, and many others taught at Fred Astaire Dance Studios Colorado Springs North.
