Student Testimonials

We were asked what Arthur Murray dance means to us... let me start by saying that I am truly the last guy that anyone, including myself, thought would take dance lessons. It is truly one of the best decisions I have made.

After about a month of trying to convince my wife, Melissa, that I was serious about learning to dance (after 33 years of marriage), the first name that came to mind was of course Arthur Murray. Melissa called, set it all up and off we went to our free lesson. After our first free lesson we signed up for a ten lesson program [and] after the third lesson we realized that dancing is our new hobby, we’re hooked!

We have met so many new friends, we swear it seems like we have known them all for years. We can’t say enough about all the instructors, they are truly the best of the best! Learning to dance at Arthur Murray is truly a positive experience! We would and have recommended Arthur Murray to anyone interested in learning how to dance. We are not only learning how to dance but we have fallen in love all over again. Dancing at Arthur Murray in Monroeville is truly priceless. We walked in months ago but have been dancing out ever since.

I saw the ad in the newspaper and called. The young lady on the other end of the phone encouraged me to come see the studio. I didn’t know what to expect as I walked through those doors. I was greeted with a warm, family-like atmosphere, introduced and shown around. I signed up [later that night]. The expert instructors had me doing things I never, ever thought I could do. I went to a wedding just two months later. That’s when it hit me. I realized I knew more about dancing than everyone on the dance floor! I was amazed. The very experienced staff can help you become the dancer you want to be. It’s fun, I made lots of friends, and I am having the time of my life.

I would just like to pass on to you how much I appreciated the opportunity to dance in the Arthur Murray Flamingo Dance-o-rama in Miami, Fla. The event was extremely well organized and presented in a first class style that is so typical of only the Arthur Murray Dance Studios. From the time Cristian and I checked in at the airport on Thursday February 25th to our return Sunday, everything went without a hitch.

I would also like to commend Cristian for the true professional that he is. He is extremely dedicated, not only to dance, but to the Arthur Murray Organization. He represented your studio with class and style. He was always prompt, dressed well and made sure that I was comfortable and taken care of. He is a true asset to your studio.

Thanks again for memories that I will cherish forever.

We received Arthur Murray dance lessons as a wedding gift from a very good friend. It’s the best gift we could have received and we have been dancing ever since! Every staff member is incredibly encouraging and inspiring. They have shown us the grace and beauty of dancing. Dancing is much more fun than working out in a gym!

On behalf of the Ladies Guild at St. Louise de Marillac Church, I would like to compliment you on your staff. Erich and Emily were excellent instructors to send to our event on February 11th. They took their time with such a large group to teach us several dances. Everyone had a fun, enjoyable time learning the steps.

Thank you for helping to make our event a huge success.
