I'm a dancer but my husband is not. When we were planning for our wedding I decided to research dance studios. Arthur Murray was very easy to work with and we decided to purchase a 6 private lesson package. They operate a well-oiled machine. All of their instructors are... Read More extremely competent and extremely friendly. Never did we feel out of place because of my husband's lack of experience. Our instructor was super when it came to constructing a dance that would be achievable for us as a couple. He had a great sense of humor and did an excellent job breaking down our dance to teach to a non-dancer. He always made us feel good about the progress we were making. After we've taken care of wedding debt we definitely plan on returning for more regular lessons.


Best Dance Studio to make your first dance special!!

The one thing I knew I wanted at my reception when I got married, was a mesh dance!! I called around to a few places, and Arthur Murray Dance Studio had my attention with their first phone call. The positive attitude, and confidence that was given just over the phone had me very... Read More excited to go to the studio, and meet them. My fiancé and I were able to come to the studio meet with them, talk, and then try a few basic dance steps to see how comfortable we felt with it. This was free! We then sat down, and talked about classes and prices. The overall amount of how much the classes would be was at first a bit overwhelming. If it was up to my fiancé, we would not have done it. BUT...... I knew I would be disappointed if I did not do this dance at my wedding. We signed up for ten private classes and with that came 5 classes of our choice. My fiancé and I have had a blast! He is very happy I didn't listen to him on this one! We have had the pleasure to work with Tavier Haarer. He has choreographed the dances to the songs we had chosen. Working with Tavier has been truly so much fun! He is so positive and makes you excited to learn! All of the staff there helps make it an open welcoming environment. My fiancé and I have had such a great time at their studio, that we plan to continue going after our lessons are up. If learning any type of dance for your first dance as husband and wife is something you have thought about, you have to check them out!! I walked in with absolutely no dance experience and will finish my lessons feeling very confident in my ability to perform my dance looking amazing!,


Father-Daughter Dance Mash-up

My dad wanted to do a fun father-daughter dance for the reception. He found Arthur Murray and consulted with them about putting together this special dance.

I really appreciated how this Arthur Murray studio put together a concrete, detailed plan for learning the different styles of dance that we were interested. I look forward very much to my fiance and I performing our first dance at our wedding reception. I enjoyed this dance studio so much that I even brought my mother so we could learn a dance routine for our Mother Son Dance. A lot of my lessons with my mother were with Monica. She was a also a great instructor with very concise and easy to understand steps. I would highly recommend for anyone interested in learning to dance as a hobby or to increase passion & intimacy in your relationship or marriage, and even to prepare for a first dance at a wedding reception.

I absolutely had a blast learning the waltz and hustle with my father for my upcoming wedding. Every instructor we had (usually Amy) was wonderful and really put in the time to choreograph a special dance for us. While it is a bit expensive (I could never afford classes on my... Read More own...probably because I work for a nonprofit...but I so wish I could), it is worth it if you're looking for a fantastic place to learn a full, choreographed routine. Amy is bubbly, fun and patient...especially since my father and I were complete newcomers to the world of dance. I look forward to my lessons each week. What a great father/daughter date night! I hope to be back, after my wedding, to learn more! :)

We chose Arthur Murray to help us choreograph our first dance for our April 2017 wedding, and I cannot say enough about what an amazing experience it was! We opted for the 10-lesson wedding package, and averaged about one class per week. We also had the opportunity to drop in...

In the end, our dance turned out better than we could've expected, and we are so exited to surprise our guests at the wedding!

Great, friendly staff and we enjoyed our lessons! We never felt uncomfortable as beginners and the staff was very knowledgable. I gave four stars only because we felt as though the lessons were very short compared to the price listed, however, we did learn a lot from them.

Neither of us have ANY dance experience, so I set out to find a studio that could make his idea come to life. Simply put, Arthur Murray far exceeded our... Read More expectations! We worked with Tavier who listened to our ideas and came up with the most fun, energetic, amazing choreography.

Needless to say, the dance brought the house down! Everyone was so surprised, and we absolutely could not have pulled this off without Tavier and the AM team. My dad even told me several weeks later that he misses our weekly dance lessons! Thank you all so much -- you made our special moment absolutely unforgettable!

"Wow!

Not... Read More only our main instructor (Tavier), but the entire team at the studio were just amazing to work with.
