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 $48, you get two private dance lessons, two group classes, and two dance parties at one of three Arthur Murray Dance Studio locations in White Plains, Yonkers, or Mount Kisco (up to a $268 value).
A panel of certified instructors is ready and waiting to instruct students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Bring a partner to your 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 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 in ship shape. Be sure to call ahead to schedule your private lessons.
A calendar chock-full of group classes allows hoofers to stick to a stately waltz, spicy up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful with a few swing steps to add 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, lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio offer bountiful, dance-based benefits. To practice newfound moves in a social setting, Arthur Murray offers clients two practice dance parties where instructors and students meet in a relaxed, comfortable setting, perfect for showcasing hand jives and papier-mâché evening wear.
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 studios provide warm, aesthetically sound environments for engaging in private and group dance lessons superbly suited to slicing and dicing a rug until it is no longer recognizable.
Although Arthur Murray Dance Studio sometimes features a discounted introductory class online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Arthur Murray Dance Studios
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.
