About Us

The Arthur Murray Approach

The Arthur Murray Franchised Centers have found that students learn most quickly and effectively on a scholastic basis. Your Foundation Program is your beginning course. You will be taught the basic patterns of the most popular dances today. Your instructor will explain how the Medal Standards are taught and will plan a personalized dance program to fulfill your specific needs and desires.

The degree of dancing you will achieve varies depending on your desire, goals, commitment, and interest. After your Introductory Program, the dance levels (degrees) progress from Associate and Full Medalist programs in Bronze, Silver, and Gold Standards. These courses are designed for people like yourself who desire a fundamental foundation social style, a flashy social style, or the hobby dancer, as well as competitive (dance sport) styles.

The majority of students who come to an Arthur Murray Dance Centers are interested in becoming good social dancers and our Medalist Programs will help you achieve your goals. If competitive dancing (dance sport) is your desire, Arthur Murray Dance Centers can train you in the latest technique, steps and styles. Arthur Murray has some of the top competitive couples in the world today.

Our instructors are carefully selected and thoroughly trained in the exclusive Arthur Murray teaching method. This assures you the finest instruction in dancing. You will have a regular dance teacher who will be responsible for your progress. Periodically, you will have exchange lessons with other teachers which will give you experience and practice in adapting to a variety of dance partners and dance styles.
