We teach our students through a mix of three different types of lessons, Private Lessons, Group Classes, and Practice Party Sessions. Using a combination of these lessons gives you the best possible dance education.
What We Teach
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 be kept as part of your instruction.
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 you to yet. Additionally, material that has been introduced will be reviewed and practiced for improvement.
Group lessons are held for different dances and levels. Please ask your teacher for the schedule, or check out our Group Calendar and take advantage of another fine way to help you become a more proficient and confident dancer.
We hold scheduled dance parties (practice sessions) for all our students. These practice parties are held once a week. 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.
It wasn’t so long ago that a couple’s first dance as man and wife, as special as it was, was only an effervescent memory — a fact that was no small blessing for couples who happened to lack any experience with dancing. With the advent of home video, a newlywed couple’s first dance is almost always recorded on tape, available down through the years for all of posterity to see. That’s why prospective brides and grooms want to give a more polished and graceful performance on the their big day. They are increasingly opting to take dance lessons to help prepare for what may be the performance of their lifetimes. At Arthur Murray, we can help prepare you to make that performance a success.
