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. 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.

Action Dance Academy's staff of sure-footed instructors imparts the wisdom behind a multitude of dance styles, guiding the strides of children as well as adults. Classes encompass the staccato steps of tap instruction, which harnesses rhythm and Morse code to imbue each routine with a subliminal message, and jazz sessions that encourage improvisational footwork. Mommy and Me Movin' and Groovin' classes invite parents to bring along their genetic investments and learn a routine together while children develop rhythmic pattern-recognition skills. Consult the academy's schedule as well as its dress code policy to learn about the sessions and ways to look great while dancing without a leather jacket.
