Benefits

It’s almost impossible to convey the many benefits that Arthur Murray students have received as a result of their dance lessons. Many singles and couples find that it has created more romance in their lives. Others rave about losing weight and all the health benefits.  And still, others enjoy how fashionable they look and feel when they go out on the dance floor.

“I wouldn’t spend a dime for dance lessons. It’s true!  What’s more, I’ve never known anyone who would take the time or make the investment, JUST to learn to dance.”
Have you ever heard that?  People learn to dance for hundreds of reasons, but never just to dance. Reasons vary with each individual, but look at it this way and you’ll agree: “I wouldn’t pay ten cents for dance lessons, but I would pay whatever I could afford for some of the things below. They’re worth the price!”  Scientists are starting to find out what dancers have always known, that dancing keeps one mentally and physically fit – and the younger you start in developing the positive habits through dancing the better!

We encourage you to reap the wonderful benefits that dancing has to offer you.   Getting started is as easy as ever! All of our students start with a private 30 minute Introductory Consultation. The first step is to schedule your introductory lesson with one of our trained instructors. During that lesson, your instructor will determine your current level and recommend an appropriate course for you to continue.

This first lesson is complimentary.  Contact us today.

Standard Social Programs

INTRODUCTORY PROGRAM: This program is designed as an introduction to three or four of the popular social dances. Its purpose is to develop your movement, timing and help you to recognize different music, also to teach you basic lead and follow.

GENERAL BASIC: This program is designed to develop four basic dances to the level of moving around the floor with a partner to make the dance more enjoyable to your partner. It will strengthen your lead/follow and give confidence to get on the floor without the fear of now knowing what to do.

GENERAL VARIETY: This is the program for the impatient dancer. It will develop free movement around the floor, much more variety, a little technique, footwork, and your first introduction to styling to make your partner comfortable, and give you more assurance that you look good on the floor. This four dance program is very popular with the person that wants to get on the floor this Friday night.
BRONZE: Bronze is the full Social Standard. It will develop timing and technique in all nine Social Dances. The styling will make you look nice and comfortable while on the floor. It will strengthen your lead and following to the point that no matter who your partner is, you will look poised and very good in ten steps plus variations in each of the dances. It will give you all the confidence you will ever need on the dance floor. Dancing at this level will be yours to keep as you will never forget the elements of each dance. It is the fun point in dancing when you don’t have to think about anything but enjoying your partner and having fun yourself. You will be checked out in each phase by an Arthur Murray Examiner. WOW!! YOU ARE NOW A FULL-FLEDGED DANCER!!!!
SILVER: Silver is a dance standard with a high degree of styling. Flashy moves make this standard stand out on the dance floor. Continuity of movement makes a couple glide around the dance floor, with many changes in direction. Styling makes this standard develop an individual character – some people become Smooth Dancers while others become Latin Dancers. Technique is very important to develop continuity of movement. This standard is the beginning of the showy and flashy dancing to be used mainly on the ballroom floor. A Silver dancer is definitely noticed on a crowded floor.
GOLD: Our Gold Standard is for the Stars! Strictly a standard for the hobby dancer or the person who wants to do exhibitions. Its intricate patterns are only to be used when both people really know what they are doing. Choreography, styling, technique and showmanship are necessities in this standard. This cannot be used on a crowded dance floor. The smoothness and control make this a beautiful standard to sit and watch. You had better be prepared to work, if this is your standard, but you will truly be regarded as an outstanding dancer able to excel in any dance there is.
