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 $48, you get two private lessons, two group classes, and two dance parties at Arthur Murray Dance Studio (a $270 value). Today’s deal is valid at Arthur Murray’s studios in York, Lemoyne, or Lancaster.
At Arthur Murray, a panel of experienced instructors is ready and waiting to instruct students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Bring a partner to your two 40-minute private lessons, or fly solo and dance with your instructor. In either case, you'll leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of your choosing. These lessons––along with a pair of Tuesday or Thursday evening group get-downs––are ideal for a betrothed pair prepping for the big wedding dance or a fledgling fitness seeker looking for a fun new way to get shipshape. Stick to a stately waltz, spice up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful by adding a few swing steps to 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. Each group lesson is followed by an informal dance party, which allows students to practice their growing light-tripperage with fellow classmates.
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. Each studio provides a warm, aesthetically sound environment superbly suited to slicing and dicing a rug until it is no longer recognizable.
Arthur Murray Dance Studio
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 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.
