How do I get started?
Getting started is easy. The first step is to schedule an 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. To set up your introductory lesson now, call or e-mail us.
How long will it take?
The length of your course will depend on how many dances you want to learn and how proficient you wish to become in each dance. However, you will be able to dance after your first lesson!
Can I really learn to dance?
Yes. Dancing is as easy as walking once you are taught how by an Arthur Murray expert. We teach simple, basic elements, from which the steps are derived. Hundreds of thousands of people have been successfully trained in Arthur Murray Dance Studios. There is no age limit.
When can I take lessons?
You can take your lessons any time you wish. Our studio is open Mon-Fri from 1pm-10pm, and Sat from 10am-7pm.
Will I have a good teacher?
You’ll have the best teacher. All of our dance instructors must complete a most arduous training regimen. They are experienced on the dance floor and knowledgeable in techniques to help you learn to master today’s popular dances. The instructors selected for you are ones we know will best suit your personality.
Is your system of teaching difficult?
Not at all. We are famous for making learning fun and easy. We teach four simple basic movements, from which the new combinations are derived.
What benefits do I receive?
Dancing is your first line of social activity. Good dancing is a lifetime investment in fun, poise, confidence, improved personality and new friends. Beyond these, dancing is a superb physical conditioner, providing fun without working at it! Learning to dance will open up a wonderful new world of togetherness and a thriving year-round social calendar.
Do I need a partner?
No! Your highly trained instructor will be your partner while learning. And if you have one that is great too. Once you feel more comfortable and would like to dance with others you will have the opportunity to join our dance parties.
How long does each lesson last?
Initial lesson - 30 min. Regular lesson - 45 min.
I am not sure what dances I should learn first?
Most of the people feel the same way. Based on the music you like and the places you are planning to go to dance, your instructor will be more than happy to suggest the dances that would suite your needs best. Foxtrot, Rumba, Swing, Salsa and Hustle are the most popular dances to start with.
Do you offer classes if I have taken dance lessons before but want to continue to get better?
Yes we do. On our initial lesson your dance instructor will go through a basic dance evaluation and determine what your level is at the current time. Knowing your strong and weak points we will be able to help you decide which would be the most efficient way to continue with your dancing dream.
