Fred Astaire - Dance Studio, American and International Dancing in San Diego, CA

Fred Astaire is known as one of the greatest, most versatile dancers of all time.

Gene Kelly, another innovator of dance, declared that the history of dance on film began with Fred Astaire.

Biography:

Born in 1899, Fred Astaire entered the show business world very early in life. At age 5, he began performing in Vaudeville and on Broadway with his sister Adele. The sibling duo starred in twelve musicals together by 1933.

The year 1933 was crucial for Fred; he journeyed to Hollywood and formed a dancing partnership with Ginger Rogers. Together, the dynamic duo starred in nine movies. Astaire starred in a total of thirty-three musical films, dancing with an array of esteemed partners including Rogers, Joan Crawford, Rita Hayworth, Cyd Charisse, and more. He also danced with some of the most phenomenal male dancers of all time, including Bing Crosby, Red Skelton, and the great Gene Kelly.

In 1987, Fred Astaire passed away from pneumonia, and the world lost a true dancing legend. While Fred himself is no longer dancing, his lightness and grace is still admired by dancers of all generations and styles, and while often imitated, will never be duplicated.
