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.

McGing Irish Dancers teaches the exhilarating rhythms of Irish dance to both recreational and competitive dancers. Classes take place in a state-of-the-art Irish dance studio, taught by instructors certified by the Irish Dance Commission in Dublin, Ireland. As students hammer out jigs and flit through reels, they gain poise, confidence, and a class full of friends equally enthused about aquatic dancing on rivers. Held in a nurturing and friendly atmosphere, classes allow eager beginners and skills-buffing experts free reign to learn and express themselves without fear of ridicule. Regular rehearsal of slip jigs and set dances can serve as a gateway to the curly-haired world of Irish dance competitions or merely promote puppet-like upper body isolation over brassily boogying legs.
