When my husband and i signed up for dance lessons two years ago, we had hopes of being competent enough to join the dance floor at the occasional gala or wedding rather than being apart of the group that sits and watches. Never did I imagine that we would find so much joy in dancing that we would actually seek out vacations that include dancing, such as cruises and vacations at the the Homestead in Hot Springs, VA which has a beautiful ballroom dance floor.
The Arthur Murray dance instructors have such a unique way of making me feel successful at each level and then building onto what I have learned without making me feel overwhelmed. At each stage, I leave the studio feeling confident, and most importantly, happy and excited to go back for my next private lesson or group class. Along with dancing on vacations, the dance parties at Arthur Murray are so much fun! My husband and I look forward each week to our Friday date nights, which include dinner at our favorite restaurants then dancing at the Arthur Murray studio. At the parties if a song comes on and we are unsure about the dance steps, an instructor is ready and willing to help. Conversely, if we just want to dance, that is perfectly fine too!
Dancing has become such an integral part of my life and brings with it a true sense of joy and personal fulfillment! Kudos to those Arthur Murray instructors who make this happen. I don’t think they could possibly imagine the impact they have had on my life and my husband’s life. Way to go Arthur Murray!
What has Arthur Murray done for me? They have helped me build my self-confidence. I have always been a wallflower and wanted to break out of my shy shell. Dancing is so much fun! Dance lessons teach you so much more than just the steps-coordination, poise, and confidence. When you combine the enthusiastic instructors with your desire to learn, you have the recipe for success. Thanks to the Arthur Murray staff for all they have taught me-dance steps and so much more.
Talented instructors, group classes, private lessons, weekly dance parties, fun in exercise, friendly and happy people…these are the reasons I am still here!
We made our first visit to Arthur Murray in Wexford so that we would be able to dance at our son’s wedding reception, but we quickly found out that dancing is SO much more than that. In addition to all of the health and social benefits of dancing and the fact that it is FUN, we also love the idea that we are learning something together as a couple that we will use the rest of our lives. Regardless of our mood when we step into the studio, we always leave with smiles on our faces.
Not only is wedding reception dancing no longer the painful tradition it used to be…we now actually look forward to any opportunity to dance. In a relatively short time, AM has prepared us to be able to confidently dance socially to any music, anytime, and anywhere. A feat I would have never guessed possible.
The instructors at AM are second to none. It is like having a group of good friends that are not only great dancers themselves, but ones that sincerely want YOU to be a great dancer too. They are not just patient and supportive but they truly invest themselves into making you the best dancer you can be.
At AM, it’s not just about “walking in and dancing out”…it’s also about enjoying every minute of it.
We love AM! AM has given us the opportunity to learn to dance, make friends, get fit, and have fun 🙂 It’s our social club, wellness center and escape from reality! What more could we ask for?
