The history of the Arthur Murray Franchised Dance Studios began in 1912 with a man named Arthur Murray, an American symbol of entrepreneurial success and social dancing.
Murray was among the first to use advertising techniques considered cutting edge at the time. His concept of selling dance lessons by mail, one step at a time, took the use of direct mail to a new level.
Our trained professionals can make you feel at home in the friendly atmosphere of an Arthur Murray Dance Studio so you can feel comfortable on any dance floor and with any dance partner.
