Social Dance Programs
Our Social Dance Programs consist of three main pieces of instruction:
Private Lessons: Learn new patterns, get one-on-one corrections from your instructor, and focus on the dances you want to learn the most as you progress through our Medalist Program.
Group Classes: Group classes are a great way to meet new people, practice your newest techniques in a structured environment, and learn to lead and follow different dance partners. We have one to two a night, with all of the dances in our curriculum making an appearance, and level breakdowns in accordance with our Medalist Program.
Practice Parties: As close as you can get to the real thing, with your instructors still around! Practice parties are the place to practice your latest dance moves with a variety of students and instructors to make sure you're ready to show your dancing off to the world (or that one special person at that one dance venue). We'll play all varieties of music: Ballroom, Latin, Country, and more!

How good do you want to be?
Discovery Dance Program
The basic program develops the most important dances you plan to use immediately at a basic level. Emphasis is placed on three important elements of dancing: (1) foot position (2) rhythm and timing (3) leading or following with enough variety to keep your learning experience interesting.
Bronze Social Dance Programs
Associate Bronze Program
The associate bronze program will help you move around more freely on the dance floor while expanding your variety, technique and footwork. Associate bronze dancers also begin to develop portrayal of 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 the Arthur Murray Dance Centers. 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. Dancing techniques at this level will be yours to keep, as you’ll never forget the elements of each dance.
