SARATOGA SPRINGS — The pandemic brought many challenges to many people, but for Fred Astaire Dance Studios (FADS) in Saratoga, it was an opportunity to relocate and re-open in a bigger and better space. The Capital Region Chamber and Owners Elizabeth and Grey Masko celebrated the new location with a ribbon cutting, champagne toast, and performances Sunday, Sept. 19, with Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner and National Ballroom Dance Champion Joan Regan Hayner. 

The new location offers a performance space that’s three times as large as before, fostering even more growth. As people are still recovering from the effects of the pandemic, FADS offers a safe environment for dancers of all ages and abilities to learn about the benefits of ballroom and Latin dancing and how even one lesson can help improve mental, physical, and emotional well-being. 

With this new location, the Maskos announce a new offering to help share the benefits of dancing with a wider audience; Fred Astaire Dance Studios – Saratoga Springs will be offering children’s classes beginning next spring.

“We are so excited about our new location, and everything we’ll be able to offer to the community,” said Elizabeth and Grey Masko. “We look forward to the children’s classes we’ll be offering in the spring and hope that our current students enjoy the new space for years to come.”
