Dancing On Air was a series of dance instruction episodes that originally aired on NBC. It consisted of five 30-minute episodes that were broadcast on Sunday at 8 pm Eastern Standard Time from February 1, 1947 to March 1, 1947. This series was produced by Fred Astaire Studios and it was hosted by Ed Sims. It featured Fred Astaire and other dancers demonstrating ballroom dancing techniques in a structured format. Astaire was 48 at the time of this series, but still in top form. Ballroom dancing uses a male and female partner, with the male partner leading the dance. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers popularized ballroom dancing in a series of films made during the 1930s. Astaire had become disappointed with the success of his films by 1946 and felt his film career was faltering. He founded Fred Astaire Studios in 1947 along with Charles and Chester Casanave, who provided the financial backing. They made the Dancing On Air episodes primarily to promote Fred Astaire Studios. moreless
