Our TEAM ASTAIRE members make a real difference to our company’s performance.

Interested in a rewarding career as a dance teacher? As a Fred Astaire Dance Teacher you'll join a community of individuals who love to connect with their community. We encourage all those interested to apply - no previous experience is required. We are really looking for the right people with the right energy to join our team.
Should you make it past the initial interview, you'll go through our in-studio training classes. This training period involves taking you through the Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Canada Instructor Course Program. This includes private training by Master Teachers, video/DVD training sessions and the use of dance instructional manuals.
New hires, or Apprentices, are first taught the basic steps of each of the dances offered at the studio and then progress to more advanced steps, styling and techniques, to grow their career at the best pace.
All instructors receive continual training once they have graduated from their initial training program. To enhance the learning process, renowned international Professional Coaches visit the studio to provide teacher training. This is also the case with the National Dance Council Members, who make more regular studio training visits.
At the appropriate time, instructors will be tested for their instructor’s certificates. If you pass, you can now begin to teach students. After passing this exam, we will continue to support your dance teacher career by providing ongoing training and growth opportunities.
