Kyle Barels and Casey Haywood are the new co-owners of the Fred Astaire dance studio now located off of Lee Highway.
Both Mr. Barels and Mr. Haywood have a background in dance instruction and look forward to bringing their experience to the new studio, which offers lessons on a variety of dance styles for all ages and abilities, officials said.
“We are excited to take over the reigns as co-owners and continue to share our passion for dance with Chattanooga and the surrounding area,” said Mr. Haywood.
Mr. Barels added, “Our hope is that the new face of Fred Astaire Dance Studio will be traditional, but also modern with an edgy twist on the dance community.”
Fred Astaire Dance Studio offers dance lessons for all styles of dance including ballroom, swing, Latin, tango, salsa and more. The studio also offers wedding dance lessons for couples who want to ‘wow’ their guests.
Fred Astaire Chattanooga will celebrate with a ribbon cutting on Monday at 4 p.m. at its new location at 6435 Lee Highway. The ribbon cutting is open to the public.
