I have had many opportunities to work directly with Ms. Albina Habrle in her capacity as owner of Fred Astaire Milwaukee dance studio. Ms. Habrle is very kind, supportive, and helpful in regard to the dance lessons, the costumes, and all related aspects of ballroom dance. She has gone out of her way to assure that I would have an appropriate costume in time for a recent event, and she even conferred with me when I was looking at dance costumes while out of town (looking at pictures to help me make a good choice). She always ensures that the costume, hair, and makeup look right.. She encourages every student with helpful suggestions and makes an effort to know and greet all her clients by name. A well-organized and efficient manager, she responds promptly and thoroughly to all questions. She has hired an absolutely fabulous, caring and knowledgeable staff who make dance lessons a joy. In all ways she is dedicated to delivering a quality product to students who are taking ballroom dance lessons.
I have taken ballroom lessons at this studio for a little over two years and still love every minute of it. My teachers are Slash Sharan and Sergey Smolin, who are both patient, personable, funny, and very knowledgeable! I am also so thankful for them b/c they are understanding of my crazy schedule, financial limitations, and passion for the artistic side of dance. I focus moreso on competitive dancing, and I love the challenge that I still feel with each lesson but at the same time have fun and feel that I continue to grow as a dancer. I am also the most physically fit than ever before. The great thing about this studio is its versatility. Every instructor has the personal and professional skills to help a student be a better performer, social dancer, competitive dancer, etc. There are also many avenues for your dancing; you can just take lessons and have fun with those in and of themselves, perform at a small Friday night practice party or a big stage at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center, dance at Practice Night, which simulates a competition scene (this is unique to the studio), compete at a small regional competition or a big national one in Puerto Rico, or prepare a dance for your wedding. I have much respect for the instructors here b/c it is not an easy task to teach someone the intricacies and physics/mechanics of dance, but the teachers make it seem effortless, along with their endless patience. I have known Slash and Sergey for a while, and they are genuine people who are passionate about what they do (teaching others how to dance and also dancing/competing themselves). It is heartwarming to be part of this group of people. My dance tip for anyone who joins the studio is to practice on your own what it is these instructors teach you. The information is so valuable. Most people here take the 40-minute private lessons (although there are group classes, too), and you can move at your own pace. If you work on this beautiful craft, you will find yourself growing more than you ever thought you would, and it makes you feel good about yourself and motivated to be even better than what you were before. It also helps that these instructors are committed to helping you achieve success and to ensure that you feel happy with your dancing. Overall, I am very happy here, and dancing has done wonders for my health. I feel blessed to know these people who have a positive and passionate attitude towards dance and life. I recommend it to anyone!
Great instructor, serious, motivating and fun. spacious clean studio, flexible schedule. I look forward to my lessons. I am happy with my decision and I highly recommend this studio.
I reserved an hour lesson for us and our wedding party, the groomsmen wouldn't go but my bridesmaids brought their husbands and we all has SO much fun! It was a great chance to relax and laugh before the wedding. If you are planning to learn a dance for your wedding I would definitely recommend taking more than one class.
The thing that made all of the difference with Cathy's classes is that there is only one teacher and the floor is for one dance style. When I went to a franchised dance studio, there were 3 to 5 teachers and there were all different music styles being played. It was really hard to practice my Foxtrot when the Salsa music was playing. Cathy teaches the group the moves and makes sure that everyone is comfortable before moving on. Her way is easier to learn and you remember the dance moves better.
Fred Astaire has such a welcoming friendly, fun atmosphere. Our instructor was very helpful and supportive- he taught us basic dance moves for our wedding song in just a few short lessons along with the basics of dancing. We hope to continue lessons after our wedding.
I can show you how to move. I also have an abundance of patience suitable to your needs and desires!

I am a dancer who has been under the great instruction of two women who are knowledgeable of the art of the different styles of Middle Eastern dance. From the Egyptian style to the Moroccan style of belly dance, I have learned them all. I have been dancing for 7 years and professionally for the past 2 years in this dance genre. I have taught at a local dance company for a summer and look forward to any and all opportunities to share what I know with others about belly dance.
