The Arthur Murray Approach to Dance Classes
Rhythm and movement are important in the dance world, but the dancer himself is just as important. Teaching someone a few moves is easy, but helping them build themselves as a dancer is not. It is with this complicated aspect of dance that Arthur Murray excels.
At our studio, we take a two-part approach to dance instruction, focusing on both the dance and the dancer. We recognize that everyone who turns to us for lessons is unique, and we tailor our approach to ensure that the instruction we deliver is the instruction you deserve. Our comprehensive classes makes it easy to find the right lessons for you.
When you make us your Signal Hill dance studio, you can decide how you want to learn. If you want to study a specific style of dance, we will enroll you in the right level. If you want to study a single dance, we can do so in private lessons. And if you want to study various dances from many styles, we can help craft the class you want. Able to teach any class at the beginner, bronze, silver, and gold levels, you will always feel challenged but never overwhelmed. Your perfect dance class is waiting for you.
Types of Dances We Offer
If you are in Signal Hill, Arthur Murray Dance Studio is the place for you to study dance. We teach so many different dance styles, you will never struggle to find one that interest you. If you are not sure what you want to learn, we can help you determine the best option for your interests or event. Below are the dance styles we currently offer our Signal Hill dance students.
The Golden Age of Hollywood offers some of the most iconic dance scenes that will ever grace the silver screen. They were graceful, elegant, and beautiful. For most of us, they are everything we think of dance as being. And the style of dance used in Hollywood’s Golden Age was Smooth and Standard. Among these dances we teach are the Tango, Foxtrot, Waltz, Viennese Waltz, and the Quickstep.
Sultry, beautiful, and athletic, Latin Dances combine art and fitness. If you want dance prowess that makes others envious, or you want a workout that feels like fun, Latin Dances are the way to go. Included amongst the Latin Dances we teach are the Bolero, Rumba, Mambo, Cha-cha, Samba, Paso Doble, Merengue, and Salsa.
Country and Western Dances
This style of dance is the perfect choice for social dances. And while most people will think it is little more than line dancing, it is actual ideal for partner dances and much more elegant than one would expect. With Arthur Murray, you can learn the Country Western Waltz, Texas Two-Step, Country Shuffle, Country Swing, West Coast Swing, the Progressive Two-Step, and the Country Triple.
Some dances just can’t be put into a neat box. For those dances without a home, we have Specialty Dances. The dances in this category combine elements from modern and classic dances to create unique and fun routines. People love these dances because they work in any setting, from clubs to weddings, and are closely related to other styles, making it easy to transition. Among the specialty dances we teach are the Nightclub Two-Step, Bachata, the Argentine Tango, and the Zouk.
Swing and Rhythm Dances
The Arthur Murray team loves every dance style we offer. However, Arthur Murray is our namesake, and as such, we are partial to the dance style he pioneered. We can turn you into a Swing and Rhythm expert with dances such as the East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Hustle, and the Jive.
Reasons to Take Dance Classes
We love dance so much we have made it our lives. As a result, we don’t think you need a special reason to learn. However, many of our students do come to us with specific reasons for enrolling in lessons. It is important that you tell us about your motivations at your first class so we can make certain your instruction is customized to address your goals. Below are just some of the reasons Signal Hill takes dance lessons with us.
Why do people dance? Long before there was competitive dance or organized performance, people still danced. And they danced because it allowed them to socialize. Dance is still an excellent way to meet new people and bond with those you already cherish. In addition to our classes that you can take solo or with friends, we host dance socials, allowing you to get to know others in the Signal Hill dance community.
A wedding isn’t a wedding without dance. At the same time, not everyone thinks highly of their dancing abilities. This is where our instructors can assist. For the couple, we offer classes that will ensure your first dance is perfection. For the wedding party, we host classes to help everyone relax and look great. We even have classes for the wedding party to build confidence or to create choreographed dances that will be remembered for years to come.
So many social events involve dancing, and the last thing you want is to be a wallflower. We offer classes that will give you the confidence you need to enjoy yourself at your next gala, ball, reunion, and more. No more holding up the wall for you!
Competitive Dancing Lessons
Maybe you have been competing for years and are looking to brush up on your skills. Or maybe you have never even danced before, but a dance competition has long been on your list of things to do. No matter your reasons, we will have you prepared for your next—or first—competition.
