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 '30s 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 Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. 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.

Pacific Dance Center?s experienced instructors teach people how to shimmy, hip swivel, and glide across the floor by breaking dance lessons up into three parts. During private classes, they teach the basics of several popular ballroom-dance styles, ensuring students have a solid dance foundation. They then use technique lessons to concentrate on one specific style, showing students how to develop their footwork and timing while sweeping from partner to partner or from partner to coat-wearing mop. Dance parties allow students to get together to practice everything they?ve learned, from waltz and tango to salsa and rumba.
