Dances We Teach
Dance provides a special blend of entertainment and exercise and remains an admirable social skill to this day regardless of the style you choose. At Arthur Murray Studios, we teach a variety of dances from a mix of categories. We’ll take you beyond the basic steps to help you master Latin, Country Western, Standard, Swing, or Specialty dances.
Ready to move to the rhythm of the Salsa dance? Latin dances are exciting, rhythmic and fun. Your body practically begs to dance when the music comes on. Originating in the Caribbean and Central and South America, the dances are vibrant and energetic. At our Arthur Murray Beverly Hills studio, you can learn the ballroom styles of Rumba, Samba, Cha-Cha and Paso Doble. We also teach the more informal forms of Salsa, Bolero, Mamba, and Merengue.
Country Western Dances
At Arthur Murray’s Beverly Hills studio, you can also enjoy dancing to country music. Dating back to the western music genre brought to America by early European settlers, these dances have a long history in the USA. At our studio, we focus on country western partner dances like the Country Swing, the West Coast Swing, the Country Western Waltz, the Texas Two-Step, Progressive Two-Step, the Country Triple, and the Country Shuffle.
Smoother, classic dance styles make up the ballroom dances. These dances are elegant and flowing, featuring a more stable upper body. Among the dances in this category are the classic Waltz and Viennese Waltz, both of which are in the easy to recognize 3/4 time. Other ballroom dances include the Tango, Foxtrot and the Quickstep. With these dances under your belt, you’ll be entirely ready to dance at formal events or participate in ballroom dancing competitions.
Swing & Rhythm Dances
Enjoy the big band jazz music of the 1920s while dancing swing and rhythm dance styles. The style earned its name thanks to the rhythmic knee, hip and arm movements these dances involve. Among these fun, energetic dances are the East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, the Jive, the Jitterbug and the Lindy Hop. We’ve also added in one bonus dance, the hustle, which has its roots in the disco era.
A mix of dance traditions and cultural influences makes up the specialty dance category. Including elements from both Latin and African rhythms and ballroom steps, these dances are energetic. Enjoy learning a range of fun dances such as the Nightclub Two-Step, the Zouk, Bachata and the Argentine Tango.
