In the year of 1917 an elfin boy of six glanced apprehensively at his mother as she straightened his wide collar, and then, encouraged by the understanding squeeze of his sister’s hand, stepped confidently on the stage of a small theater in Keyport, New Jersey. And so began the career that was to make Fred Astaire an international legend in his own time.

Today, his name has come to be synonymous with dancing, and no one other person has so profoundly affected the taste and style of Ballroom Dancing.

Born Frederick Austerlitz in 1899 in Omaha, Nebraska, Fred Astaire first achieved fame in the dancing team “THE ASTAIRES” with his partner, sister Adele. From 1917 to 1931 The Astaires delighted audiences in the United States and England until, in 1931, they made their last appearance as a team in the stage rendition of “THE BANDWAGON”, a smash musical revue at the New Amsterdam Theater in New York City.
