Technique, performance, artistry, and life skills. Those are the pillars on which Dance Arts Conservatory molds it students into fully formed dancers. Even the youngest ballet students here start their paths with technique, learning pas de basque and three-point turns before moving on to more complex moves. But ballet is not the only curriculum here. Instructors here also teach jazz, tap, and hip hop classes, each with their own distinct style. The school's large class slate also includes fitness-based dance classes—such as Zumba and Red Hot Dance Fitness—which combine energetic dance steps with upbeat songs to keep classes fun.
Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the 1930s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
Though they didn't know each other at the time, Evgeny Dyachenko and Inna Ivanenko both discovered ballroom dancing in Russia at the age of 7. They enjoyed tremendous success in their respective careers, placing among the top competitors in championships across the globe, but it wasn't until they moved to the US and met one another that their achievements began to pile up like film-award statuettes in a movie star's toy chest. In 2006, they ranked second in the World American Rhythm Show Dance Championship; they toured 25 cities performing with Dancing with the Stars in 2007; and in 2008, they lit up theaters across the nation in the stage show Champions of the Dance. Eventually, they decided to share their talents with others and opened their own studio. Today, Evgeny, Inna, and their team of instructors lead dancers of all ages and levels through social and competitive dancing programs in a variety of styles—24 styles, specifically, which include foxtrot, rumba, West Coast swing, and tango.
