Our Teaching Method

How Students Are Taught

Arthur Murray Dance Studios believe that students learn most quickly and effectively on a scholastic basis. Your introductory program is the first student level. You will learn the basic patterns of the most popular dances today. Your instructor will explain how the Medal Standards are taught and will plan a personalized program to fulfill your specific needs and desires.

The degree of dancing you will achieve varies depending on your desire, goals, commitment and interest. After your Introductory Program, the dance levels (degrees) progress from Associate and Full Medallist programs in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Gold Bar Standards. These courses are designed for people like yourself who desire a fundamental foundation or more advanced training in the social, as well as competitive ballroom and latin (dance sport) styles.


The majority of students who come to an Arthur Murray Dance Studio are interested in becoming good social dancers and our medalist programs will help you achieve that goal. If competitive ballroom dancing (dance sport) is your desire, Arthur Murray Dance Studios can train you in the latest techniques, steps and styles. We boast some of the top competitive couples in the world today.

The choice is yours and we’ll help you achieve your goal because each dance lesson is taught step-by-step at your own pace. Over 40 million people have enhanced their social life by learning to dance quickly and easily the Arthur Murray way!
