"It's more than dance-its a way of life, Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Danbury us a finely connected family of genuine and talented instructors. Becoming a student of this studio has enhanced every aspect of my life. Not only has it provided a wonderful healthy new hobby but I've experienced several physical inprovements-grace, balance, poise and agility. My posture has become straighter and I've noticed increased muscle tone and strength. Once walking through the door lifes problems seen to evaporate and a new freedom takes place-at least for the next 45 minutes." ~Anonymous
I was the girl who sat on the sidelines watching others dance. Even when it came to family weddings I couldn't seem to "get" the polka steps. But as an adult I really wanted to be able to dance and be part of the fun. So when I won three free lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio I was able to talk my husband into coming with me. Well, we ended up enjoying the experience so much, we signed up for lessons! We feel comfortable and accomplished because our instructors really know how to teach us the movements to make our dancing beautiful! The steps, the arm and hand movements all work together to move us through our dances gracefully. Another added bonus is the warm atmosphere made up of all the other friendly students. We have made wonderful friendships at the dance studio as well. We enjoy each others' company at the dinner/dance functions both at our home studio and at other venues. I tell you honestly, Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Danbury is the place to enjoy both learning to dance and dancing for enjoyment! My husband and I are enjoying our lives and still going to lessons together!
The teaching staff at Arthur Murray Danbury provides us with a truly meaningful dancing experience while maintaining a sense of fun and excitement at every lesson, class and party!!! The laughter and encouragement of our instructors and the support and inspiration of the other sucents, helped us easily become confident in our dancing abilities. The continued trust in our skills gives us the confidence we need to be able to get on the dance floor in both studio performances and social settings knowing that our abilities will be met with enthusiasm. The staff at Arthur Murray Danbury’s excitement shows how much they love their profession and we are fortunate to be learning ballroom dancing from the best in dance!!!
My husband and I have been taking dance lessons for almost one year. We started incorporating split lessons for the past 4 months and have noticed a significant improvement in our connection as a couple. Tara has been helping Glenn with his leadership skills and Andy has been working on my following technique. We are extremely pleased with our dancing progress and highly encourage other couples to explore this added feature at the dance studio.
One afternoon, Deborah answered the phone and the caller said, “Congratulations you have won two free dance lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Danbury”. Now Deborah thinks ‘wow, this is great’ because she had been thinking that we should take lessons as a shared hobby. Then the caller asks, “When would you like to schedule your lessons, Mrs. Murphy?” Deborah tells the caller, “you must have the wrong number, I am not Mrs. Murphy”. Now Deborah knows the caller must have missed-dialed since her number was unlisted. The caller than tells her it was okay, she would award her the two free lessons anyway and we have been dancing at Arthur Murray’s ever since.
We have been taking lessons for years now and the experience has been nothing but fantastic. We have gotten so much more out of our dance experience than I could have ever imagined. Physical and mental exercise, meeting and making new friends, friendly competition, and probably the most rewarding aspect, it is something we can enjoy together as a couple.
The instructors are all extremely talented, friendly and courteous. Our instructors design and tailor our private lessons to the goals we set to achieve from our dancing. In our case, we like to go to area dance contests to compete against other Arthur Murray Studio Student’s throughout Connecticut and New York. However, if your goal is just to look good on the social dance floor or at an upcoming wedding or event, your instructor will design your lessons accordingly.
Deborah and I would like to thank the entire staff at Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Danbury for a great experience and dance in the past, present, and hopefully for a long time to come in the future. It has brought us closer together as a couple in more ways than one. But that is a long story for another time and place.
We will never know if the call was a mistake, a missed dialed number, fate, divine intervention or just plain luck. But what we do know beyond a show of a doubt, it was all good.
