Arthur Murray’s panel of experienced instructors school students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. In private lessons, dancers hone their understanding of a chosen style, whether they are experienced and hoping to brush up on certain techniques or they have two left feet for feet and two right feet for hands. These lessons—along with two included group classes—are ideal for a betrothed pair prepping for the big wedding dance or fledgling fitness-seekers looking for a fun new way to get shipshape. Stick to a stately waltz, spice up life with a rumba, or revamp repertoires with a few swing steps. The dance party supplements each package, allowing students to practice their growing light-tripperage with partners, fellow classmates, other attendees, or invisible dates.
Alternatively, during Arthur Murray’s basic introductory program, newbies polish foot position, rhythm and timing, and leading or following. On the opposite end of the difficulty spectrum, the Gold Program prepares shimmiers for performances, exhibitions, or competitions, with instruction in showmanship and choreography that teaches students to slice and dice a rug until it’s a pile of whimpering fibers.
Arthur Murray Dance Studios
Arthur Murray Dance Studios has been a leading name in social 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 certified instructors. 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.
