What You'll Get
Circus bears untrained in the art of dance are often the least popular big-top attraction, falling somewhere between the bearded lady and a slice of stale rye bread on a pedestal. Ensure an appearance in the spotlight with today's Groupon: for $40, you get two private lessons, one group lesson, and a complimentary dance assessment at Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Kentwood, Grand Rapids, and Grandville. (up to a $160 value).
A panel of certified instructors is ready and waiting to instruct students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. You can begin with the complimentary 20-minute dance assessment, which will offer some fundamental dance instruction and direction, or forgo the assessment and jump right into two 30-minute private lessons and one 40-minute group lesson. Bring a partner or fly solo and dance with your instructor during the private lessons, and then mingle with other participants during a group lesson. In either case, you'll leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of your choosing. Stick to a stately waltz, spicy up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful with a few swing steps in your personal repertoire. Whether you're an experienced dancer hoping to brush up on certain techniques or you have two left feet for feet and two right feet for hands, the lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio offer bountiful, dance-based benefits. Check out the studio calendar for a list of upcoming group lessons.
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. The studio 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.
Though Arthur Murray Dance Studio sometimes features introductory offers online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Arthur Murray Dance Studio
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.
