Our Instructors
Our instructors are carefully selected and trained to bring you the finest in dancing instruction. Working together, they help you reach any dancing goal through individualized teaching utilizing the latest techniques and styles.

 

Private Lessons
During your one-on-one private lessons, you will receive personalized instruction that will help you achieve your goals in dancing. Your instructor will spend the time necessary on technique, styling, and general dance improvement. An up-to-date record of everything you have learned will also be kept as part of your instruction.

 

Group Classes
Group Classes are an important addendum to your private instruction. They give you the opportunity to dance with a variety of partners, develop good dance habits, and meet other students in the studio. In Group Classes we emphasize technique, style, and variation of patterns. You may be taught materials that your regular instructor hasn’t introduced to you yet. Additionally, material that has been introduced will be reviewed and practiced for improvement.

 

Practice Parties
We hold scheduled dance parties (practice sessions) for all our students. These parties are held on a weekly basis. You will have fun dancing with the instructors and students in a relaxed and comfortable environment. This gives you the opportunity to practice and try out all the new dance skills that you’ve learned in your Private and Group Lessons.

 

Medal Ball
An Arthur Murray Medal Ball is a gala dance event honoring students who graduate from one level of their dance program to the next. Medal Balls also afford students the opportunity to enjoy their dancing in a fun and elegant setting.

 

Showcase
A Showcase is a one-day event where students present dance routines with personalized choreography. These routines make an exciting addition to your Medalist Program because they allow you to develop showmanship and musical expression along with your social dance skills.

 

Dance Sport/Competition
A Dance Sport Competition is an exciting one, two or three day event that brings students together from many Arthur Murray studios to compete, at their level, in dances of their choice. This requires specialized dance training to polish and perfect choreography, technique, and style. The agenda is full of activities such as dance competitions, cocktail parties, dinner dances, and exciting professional shows.
