Arthur Murray Franchised Dance Studios offers Private Lessons, Group Lessons, and Practice Parties. These Programs have proven to be the fastest, least expensive way to learn to dance.
The majority of students who come to an Arthur Murray Dance Studio are interested in becoming good social dancers and our medalist programs will help you achieve that goal. If competitive ballroom dancing (dance sport) is your desire, Arthur Murray Dance Studio can train you in the latest technique, steps and styles. Indeed, we boast some of the top competitive couples in the world today.
During your one-on-one private lessons, you will receive personalized instruction that will help you achieve your goals in dancing. Your instructor will spend the time necessary on technique, styling, and general dance improvement. An up-to-date record of everything you have learned will be kept as part of your instruction.
Groups lessons give you the opportunity to dance with a variety of partners. This helps you develop good dance habits and meet other students in the studio. Group lessons emphasize balance, repetition, leading/following, and variation of patterns. You may be taught materials that your regular instructor has not introduced yet.
Group lessons are held for different dances and levels. View our schedule online and take advantage of another fun way to help you become a more proficient and confident dancer.
The studio holds scheduled dance parties (practice sessions) for all of our students on a weekly basis. Students have fun dancing with the instructors and other students in a relaxed and nurturing environment. We always play a wide variety of music including Ballroom, Swing, Latin, and Country- all music that you can easily dance to. And, just like at all those weddings and parties you’ll be attending, you never know when we might throw in a Conga Line, a Line Dance, a Mixer or a special exhibition!
An Arthur Murray Medal Ball is a gala dance event honoring students who “graduate” from one level of their dance program to the next. Medal Balls also afford students the opportunity to enjoy their dancing in a fun and elegant setting.
A Showcase is a one-day event where students present dance routines with personalized choreography. These routines make an exciting addition to your Medalist Program as they allow you to develop showmanship and musical expression along with your social dance skills.
A Dance Sport Competition, is an exciting two or three day event that brings students together from many Arthur Murray studios to compete. Students compete in dances of their choice, against dancers at their level. This requires specialized dance training to polish and perfect choreography, technique, and style. The weekend is full of activities such as dance competitions, cocktail parties, dinner dances, and exciting professional shows.
