With resumés that list extensive travels from venue to venue, the instructors at The Pointe Dance Center embody Shakespeare's famous sentiment, "All the world's a stage." Owner Donna Frias has appeared on television and in famous venues—Madison Square Garden and the Civic Light Opera among them—as a member of Bella Lewitzky's dance company.
At their Las Vegas studio, professional instructors combine their experiences to spark a passion for dance in students of all age groups. They concentrate on the dual development of technique and confidence, leading classes in ballet, tap, hip-hop, and acrobatic disciplines including gymnastics and cheer. They acclimate tiny legs to new rhythms with sessions for toddlers, and they also host Stretch, Turn & Leap seminars that help with general poise. By relying on positive reinforcement rather than giant, screaming metronomes for motivation, they encourage pupils to view choreography as a flexible medium for self-expression.
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 and timing, then progressing to more complicated patterns.
