What our clients are saying...
Everyone is so helpful and encouraging to dancers at every level. My husband and I adore our instructor and we look forward to our lessons each week. I think it speaks to the atmosphere when we have noticed the same people almost every time we go. It’s a great space to learn and have fun.
I highly recommend this studio to anyone that wishes they knew how to dance. It is the most supportive community and the instructors are so encouraging. I am very grateful to have joined the Arthur Murray family. My lessons and classes are the highlight of my week and I always look forward to seeing everyone at the studio.
We love Arthur Murray...We have had so much fun working with each instructor and learning new skills each time we come in. Dancing has become a great way for my husband and I to make new connections after 16 years of marriage.

What to expect on your first lesson
After answering a few questions about your goals, aspirations, and the look and feel you’d like to have, you'll be guided through a few basics by one of our highly-trained instructors.
You'll start to learn to dance on your very first lesson, and leave with a plan of action for the next few sessions.
