If you’re looking for a workout…

You’ll probably want a more upbeat class. Implementing dance as a form of working out is an excellent way to maintain aerobic activity and to upkeep your cardiovascular health. The jitterbug is a very fast-paced, up-tempo dance that is not only incredibly fun, but promises the workout you are looking for. The merengue is another dance that is similar in nature to salsa, and is full of fun twists and turns. Check out our schedule to sign up for one of these classes, both of which promise a great workout!

If a wedding is in your future…

A wedding dance class is perfect for you. Imagine those incredibly romantic, dazzling dance scenes from movies like “Beauty and the Beast,” where everyone’s eyes are on the two mesmerizing main performers. You can achieve this same feeling and sentiment for your first dance as a married couple with dance classes! A slow dance is very typical, and there’s nothing wrong with keeping it simple, but on the day when you get to showcase and share your love with the ones you love, everyone will enjoy watching you and your spouse grace the dance floor.

With an Arthur Murray wedding dance package, you get a free private introductory lesson which will help you and your partner build a foundation for the wedding dance of your dreams.

If you’re hosting or attending a themed event…

It would be a great time to demonstrate your dynamic dance skills. Themed events happen all the time, all around the country, and are a marvelous opportunity to bring your dance moves to the floor. Attending a Latin/salsa night or quinceñera would be enhanced by knowing how to dance the salsa or merengue. In more recent years, holiday parties have involved themes like a Yule Ball, “White Christmas,” swing dancing, or more. Having the proper moves for these types of events make for an excellent way to not only enjoy the party, but to meet people as well. For any kind of ballroom situation, ballroom classes are right up your alley. Arthur Murray offers swing dance classes as well—sign up today!

Plan a salsa competition, where guests bring over their favorite salsa or other Mexican foods, and then have an actual salsa dance competition as well. Or host a country western party for someone’s birthday, and learn how to two-step or try country western swing. Any type of event can be dramatically improved and unique when dancing is involved.
