Why Fred Astaire Dance Studios?

Because an atmosphere of kindness, warmth and fun awaits you at every Fred Astaire Dance Studio! It’s what our clients tell us they notice from the first time they step inside – an energy and sense of “FADS community” that is welcoming, 100% non-judgmental, and truly joyful!

At Fred Astaire Dance Studios, our passion is helping to enrich lives – physically, mentally, emotionally and socially – through the positive, transforming power of dance. There are thousands of reasons why people start dance lessons – from wedding dance instruction, a new hobby or way to connect with your partner, improving your social life, physical and emotional health. And once we show you how much fun ballroom dancing can be, we know you’ll want to keep coming back!

Gilda’s Club Madison Wisconsin

Not only does Gilda’s Club offer support for those with cancer, but it also provides support for the entire family throughout their entire journey with cancer.

Gilda’s Club is truly a place where people, young and old, can share their experiences, questions, and feelings while sharing a cup of coffee, playing in the kids’ Noogieland area, participating in support groups, taking part in lectures such as “Your Skin During Cancer Treatment” or workshops such as “Relaxation & Guided Imagery” as well as a variety of social events from Spring Potlucks to Game Nights.

Gilda’s Club is a place where people can come as they are — happy, sad, angry or tired — and be who they are.

Our club is a welcoming environment away from the emotionally charged health care setting where people can just be themselves and share themselves with others.


GIRLS’BIZ is a community program which empowers middle school girls to start and run their own businesses and spend their profits on a group trip and a contribution to charity. GIRLS’BIZ is a program jointly sponsored by the WWE and The Foundation of WWE, Inc. The program meets on Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 8PM from September through April, and joins WWE for some of their Tuesday evening meetings. Each September we assemble a new group.

Each year, the girls name their new company, work with a designer on their logo, take field trips to women owned businesses, learn to interview a business owner, brainstorm product ideas, take a product survey, make a business plan, take orders, produce and sell their product, and keep track of revenues and expenses. They determine their profit and decide how much to give to the charity that they choose. Then they plan their trip!

Throughout the year, the girls meet women in business and increase their skills in planning, speaking and sales, while having fun with their friends! The experience of GIRLS’BIZ stays with these girls as they later make their own work and life choices.

Hammer & Stain

Never been to a wood and paint studio? No worries, you are not alone! Here is what to expect when you arrive:

Both your wood and your personalized stencil will be placed on a work table at a reserved spot. If you requested to be seated next to a friend, you should find their design in the spot next to you. In order to protect your clothing, you will want to put on the apron provided. If you also wish to place your purse/handbag away from the work table, there is a designated area where you can safely place your things.

Once everyone has settled in, we will begin class. A typical class will last for 2-2.5 hours. Larger pieces and furniture projects may last up to 3.5 hours.

The instructor will guide you through the process, from start to finish. We will also help you with the selection of stain and paint color options. If you get lost, written instructions are provided at the center of each table as well as on the wall. We will be hands-on throughout the entire workshop, but if at any time you have questions or need help, please let us know! We are there to HELP YOU!!

Laura Lahti Real Estate of Badger Realty Team

Real estate professionals help people during major milestones.
Knowing I help people through major times in their lives is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a Realtor in Madison, WI. From a new couple buying their first house to families buying a vacation home or a bachelor getting his ultimate bachelor pad, being a real estate agent allows me to help people through each stage in their lives and truly be part of each community around Madison,WI. I’ve noticed that being a real estate agent means sometimes I become part counselor, part life coach, and part mentor. Having a passion for giving back has been the some of the more rewarding aspects of my career.

When you’re dealing with residential, there’s a different emotion. I thrive in residential over commercial because of this emotion. Quite simply, “I love the rush of finding someone their dream home or selling a listing others can’t even attempt to.”
Knowing the path and walking it
After spending time learning how to become a real estate agent and then honing my skills, I found that I genuinely became knowledgeable enough to consider myself an agent with a clear process for buying and selling. Clients and colleagues look to me for advice on the market and I enjoy continually learning so I know what I tell you is not only correct, but current. As aBadger Realty Team Agent I take great pride in being considered a trusted agent, friend, coworker and of course a teacher.  Taking the knowledge learned from previous years and applying them to the now “resets” my process for my clients each season.  You’ll always get the best I can deliver with a proven process that has evolved with the times.
Real estate gives me the incentive for working hard
True real estate agents who want to make a living, have to work super hard and it’s a rewarding kind of hard work. You can work as hard as you want though, leaving some buyers and sellers choosing agents that do just that…”work as hard as they want.”

Working harder then my competition fits perfectly with my desire to sell real estate and find the perfect dream home for my clients and now you have the opportunity to put me and my team to work for you!
