Country Western Dances
If you are looking to have a lot of fun, while also enjoying some true Americana, Country Western dances are for you. These smooth gliding and scooting dances were created by European settlers as they moved west.

With us, you can become a true Country Western dance expert.
Specialty dances refer to a wide variety of dances that combine old and new styles, and have become popular in recent years. These dances are great to learn if your goal is to impress in any setting, from a reserved gala to a nightclub. Among the specialty dances we teach are the Nightclub Two-Step, Bachata, the Argentine Tango, and the Zouk.
Swing and Rhythm Dances
For those who are looking for dances that are fun and active, you cannot do better than the swing and rhythm dances. For Hermosa Beach, our instructors at Arthur Murray Dance Studio, are experts at every dance we teach. However, Swing and Rhythm dances are special to us since our namesake, Arthur Murray, was instrumental in their development and popularity. Our dedicated dance teachers can help you master the East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Hustle, and the Jive.

After the wedding comes the reception, and with the reception comes music and dancing.

What to Expect from Your Dance Lessons
Our approach to your classes will vary. This is because we tailor your dance classes to meet your needs and interests. We could start with the basics to give you a foundation in dance, or we might need to focus on polishing your moves and ways to improve your showmanship. Our dance instructors also change their approach depending on whether or not the class is individual, group, or private group.
No matter what, your first dance lesson starts with our $20 introductory lesson, which is meant to help you learn more about us and us learn more about you. Once this dance class is finished, the instructor will speak with you about your goals and help guide you in creating a plan. This is also when you will decide which level of class you need, either our introductory program, or the bronze, silver, or gold program.
