If you’re planning to get married, check out the wedding page to see a few tips from the Arthur Murray® dance experts on learning to dance in preparation for your wedding.
Basic Introductory Program
With the Basic Program, your dance lessons will develop the most important dances you plan to use immediately at a basic level. Emphasis is placed on three important elements of dancing: foot positions, rhythm and timing, and leading or following with enough variety to keep your learning experience interesting.
Associate Bronze Program
The associate Bronze Program will help you acquire freer movement around the floor while expanding your variety, technique and footwork. Associate Bronze dancers also begin to develop a dance’s characteristics in the form of styling. This dance program is very popular with those wanting to get on the dance floor quickly.
Full Bronze Program
Full Bronze is the complete social dance program taught by Arthur Murray® Dance Studios. It’s designed to develop timing and techniques in all social dances selected by the student. The styling will make you look and feel comfortable on the dance floor and strengthen your lead and following regardless of your partner, the music being played or the type of dance floor. Bronze dancers have all the confidence anyone would need on the floor because they have reached the “fun point” in dancing. Techniques learned from your dance lessons at this level will be yours to keep as you’ll never forget the elements of each dance.
Silver is the dance lessons standard with a high degree of styling. More elaborate movements ensure the Silver dancer will stand out on any dance floor. Continuity of movements makes a couple glide across the dance floor with many natural directional changes. Styling, technique, balance and control take on an entirely new meaning. This is the beginning of the more professional standard used mainly on the ballroom dancing floor.
Our Gold standard is strictly for the hobby dancer interested in performances, exhibitions or competitions. Its intricate patterns are only to be used when both partners are proficient. Choreography, styling, technique and showmanship are necessities in this standard. This material is generally not used on a crowded floor. There is a lot of work involved in this program, but you will truly be regarded as an outstanding dancer, able to excel in any dance.
The competitive experience is not just about winning. It is about pushing yourself to achieve more. This achievement is not measured in the number of medals or awards you receive. It is about the other skills you’ve improved that will lead to happier, more productive dancing, and even better results in the future. Those results can include your dancing or competitive experience, but most likely will also include social confidence, business acumen, personal relationships, and so much more. That is what makes the competitive experience so valuable in achieving your dance goals.
