How We Teach

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 Lessons

Group Lessons 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 Lessons 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 hasn’t been introduced will be reviewed and practiced for improvement.

Practice Parties

We hold scheduled dance parties (practice sessions) for all our students. These practice parties are held on a weekly or semi-monthly 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

A Dance Sport Competition is an exciting 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 weekend is full of activities such as dance competitions, cocktail parties, dinner dances, and exciting professional shows.
