Arthur Murray Dance Studio 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.
Some restaurants are known for their hearty breakfast. Others, for their elegant dinner service. And then there's La Luna Ristorante, which is renowned for both. The restaurant owes its many awards in part to executive chef Edgar Ortiz, who mainly prepares his entrees in the traditional style of Tuscany. One taste of his perfectly grilled pork loins or mozzarella-stuffed scallops wrapped in prosciutto is enough to see why La Luna has earned high marks from Connecticut Magazine. The Sunday brunch is more universal in scope, with a massive buffet stocked with belgian waffles, custom omelets, and freshly carved meats. Several nights a week, guests can take in dinner and a show, thanks to live bands and waiters trained to recite the night's specials in iambic pentameter.
A crimson curtain rises to unveil the operas, nationally touring musicals, children's shows, and films that pass under the historic movie palace's gilded ceiling. Originally built in 1926 as a home for vaudeville performances and motion pictures, the grand venue has survived more than eight decades with the help of The Garde Arts Center, Inc., a nonprofit organization that formed in 1985 to both preserve the building and pursue its mission "to engage, enrich, entertain, and inspire the region of Greater New London." Today, the center stages a slew of performances and events that keep guests on the edges of all 1,472 seats.
