Arthur Murray Dance Center of Hawaii boasts a panel of experienced instructors who teach students of all skill levels the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Budding Baryshnikovs, who attend two private 30-minute lessons solo or as a couple, learn their choice from more than 20 dance styles, ranging from the waltz or rumba to the West Coast swing or Super Bowl shuffle. Then, dancers join a group class of up to six pupils, where they hone their footwork for 40 minutes. Finally, the fitness seeker or dancing duo attends a 45-minute practice under the watchful eye of a dancing doyen who stands ready to offer advice and prevent couple collisions by waving neon yellow flags.

Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when an entrepreneur, also coincidentally named Arthur Murray, began selling mail-order dance lessons. Over the course of the following century, the company grew and expanded internationally to become the cavorting juggernaut that it is today. Arthur Murray Dance Center of Hawaii, which Murray started in his retirement, provides a warm, aesthetically sound environment for engaging in private and group dance lessons superbly suited to slicing and dicing a rug until it is no longer recognizable.

Arthur Murray Dance Center Hawaii

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 partner-less will be paired up with instructors to help assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout group lessons, instructors teach the foundations of 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. These lessons are then used as a foundation for clients to learn more intermediate and advanced moves.
