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.

Both of today’s deals can be redeemed by couples or single dancers. The studio offers all new students one complimentary private lesson, so this Groupon covers the lessons that follow.
A panel of experienced instructors is ready and waiting to instruct students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion during classes in ballroom, Latin, and social dancing. Students may bring a partner to their private lessons, or fly solo and dance with the instructor. In either case, they’ll leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of your choosing. Throughout group classes, and private lessons, and practice parties, dancers can stick to a stately waltz, spice up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful with a few swing steps in their personal repertoires. Specialty classes in polka and the Argentine tango are also available. 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.
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 touting its own class calendar, the six Seattle locations provide 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.
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. 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.
