Arthur Murray Dance Studios takes its name from entrepreneurial social dancer Arthur Murray, who began the international dance-education empire in 1912. In private lessons, instructors work with individuals or couples to emphasize leading, following, rhythm, and form, ensuring no one tries to dance with their feet on a partner’s hands. Once armed with confidence, students step into group lessons to hone specific styles such as salsa and mambo, Viennese waltz and fox trot, and specialty dances such as nightclub two-step. Then practice parties invite dancers to show off new moves in a low-pressure, joyful setting, much like med-school grads performing on a sock puppet at a birthday party.

Regular dance programs bundle five group lessons, five private lessons, and five parties, so seasoned regulars can refine their practice over time. An online schedule showcases class times and instructions to find Arthur Murray’s buried treasure.

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.
