Dances We OfferThey say that dance is a great way to express your emotions. While this may sound like such a cliché, the quote seems to have endured throughout the years mainly because there’s truth to it. It’s wise to choose an activity that encourages you to express your very own creativity. There are several styles to choose from and you need to know how each dance is unique from the other.

Two months ago I decided to try and take a few dance lessons just so that I would be able to survive at an upcoming wedding just in case I had the opportunity to meet someone who I might want to get on the dance floor (and mingle) with.

Two months ago I decided to try and take a few dance lessons just so that I would be able to survive at an upcoming wedding just in case I had the opportunity to meet someone who I might want to get on the dance floor (and mingle) with. I have avoided getting on a dance floor for just about the entirety of my thirty years on this earth. My initial expectation was to take one or two lessons per week with the end result being that I might be able to get on the dance floor with a girl and not make a complete fool of myself.
After my very first lesson, I was made to feel confident enough that I thought I would come in a few extra times the next week than I had initially thought I would with the newfound expectation that I might not just be able to survive on the floor, but impress! Week after week, I ended up coming in more and more, and surprisingly found myself having a wonderful time dancing. This was no longer something I wanted to do just for the extrinsic benefit of being able to meet someone, but something I found myself looking forward to doing for its own sake as well.
During my short time at Arthur Murray, I have already gone to several parties where I have felt very comfortable dancing with women I didn't know, or at best hardly knew. I even competed at a Dance Festival where I dancer 52 separate "heats", not to mention several general dances and a "Jack n Jill" competition where a woman I had never seen before randomly drew my name out of a hat and partnered up with me in competition.
The wedding which prompted me to contact Arthur Murray in the first place is next weekend, however I have no doubt that I will continue on with Arthur Murray for a long time to come. My instructors are all unbelievable and have really made me feel that I have the potential to be a great dancer if I continue to do what I am doing. With all the events Arthur Murray has to offer (not just locally, this next half-year alone they are going to Italy, Las Vegas, Argentina and Cancun), there is always something to look forward to and to motivate me to continue to get better and improve my skills. It is hard to believe how much I have changed in less than two months since I grudgingly and embarrassingly walked in to Arthur Murray with a belief that it was probably a hopeless endeavor for anyone to teach me how to dance. With no exaggeration whatsoever, Arthur Murray has truly changed my life.
