When’s Christmas and Hanukkah?
Christmas is in 70 days and Hanukkah is in 64 days. I send out my Christmas cards November 28th and my Christmas tree goes up that weekend. I’m working weekly on my cards (which I make) and my mailing list. Time to purchase the gifts I send to those far away, and start planning the kitties’ stockings. The holidays are almost here!
Why in the world am I writing about this now? Because 2015 will be here before we know it and January is one of the biggest months in our Arthur Murray calendar! We begin ‘Dancing With Our Stars’ benefit in January at St. Monica’s and January is also our biggest guest promotion month of the new year.
Another reason is that I am passionate for the holidays is the music of the seasons. I love the familiar tunes and the classic music that I grew up with. I love the decorations at Disneyland and the “snow” that falls each night on Disney’s Main Street. I love sending out cards and messages to so many that I love and miss, and receiving cards from so many friends.
I especially love the Arthur Murray calendar at this time of year. We have the Tournament of Champions, six weeks of great parties and activities. November is Graduation Medal Ball, December is the event of the year “Holiday Ball” and our new “Mistletoe Ball”.
Sometimes the holidays are rough on us, but dancing with Arthur Murray makes the holidays a joy and a pleasure to experience. Then, January is a fantastic month to kick start the new year! Yes, Arthur Murray is the place to be October through December and into the New Year!
I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived
the length of it. I want to live the width of it as well.– Diane Ackerman
One of the many things I love about Arthur Murray is having some many things to look forward to! As the above quote says, I want to ‘do it all’ in my life. After 38 years of the Arthur Murray professional life (October 15, 1976), I still feel as if there is much, much more for me to experience and do. There will never be enough years of dancing for me!
Remember, the magnitude of your life is directly proportional to the magnitude of your thoughts – Dodinsky

Do what you love to do, and do it so well that those who come to see
you do it will bring others to watch you do it again and again.– Mark Victor Hansen
My goal is to have the friendliest, happiest, most active, and most hospitable Arthur Murray school in the world! This can only be achieved by living the dream. Being a good planner and being a master at follow through!
The greatest gift you will ever receive is the gift of loving and
believing in yourself. Guard this gift with your life. It is the only
thing that will ever truly be yours.– Tiffany Loren Rowe
Enjoy the holidays. Come dance with us and dance away the blues and dance in the joy. Laugh, feel good, and become that happy person that lives life in joy and eager anticipation of the coming day
Love you all,
