By- arthurmurraydancestudioofcranford

New to our review series? Start here! And our previous episode is here. With episode 3 of Welcome To The Ballroom, we have some time passing, and with that comes some clear dancing progress, too. Tatara’s teachers declare that his Waltz is “perfect”, and there is much rejoicing—and also many, many comparisons of his dancing to various animals. (The newborn fawn was a good one; it can definitely feel like you’re wobbling around on fawn legs after a long day

New to our review series? Start here! With the second episode of Welcome to the Ballroom, we meet more characters, learn about different styles of teaching and learning, and get to see our first competition. It’s a lot to take in, but it does a wonderful job of highlighting not only the thrill of ballroom dancing, but also the hard work that it demands. Hard work seems like it’s going to be a big feature of this series. (As well

A Day In The Life: Lance

Around 7:30am, I wake up. At 8, I have breakfast – usually Raisin Bran Crunch and 2 scrambled eggs, and I eat on the coach while surfing Netflix. No rush to the day yet. At 9, I workout. This is usually 20 – 30 minutes of cardio, followed by weights. Afterward is a shower and then actually getting ready for the day. I prepare a quick lunch before, usually a protein or green smoothie to have at the studio later.

For anyone who watches anime, you’ve probably already heard of Ballroom e Youkoso (Welcome to the Ballroom) getting an anime adaptation. That’s a fairly niche audience, however, even counting those who grew up in the Pokemon heyday of the 90s. And what is “anime”, for those outside that niche audience? Anime is Japanese animated shows or movies. Movies such as Akira or My Neighbor Totoro are anime, as are television shows like Sailor Moon, Gundam, or yes, even Pokemon. Anime

What Happens If I Have To Cancel?

Sometimes, despite your instructor’s best efforts to accommodate any schedule, life will get in the way. And that’s okay. So what do you do when life happens? First, please call the studio and let your instructor know what is going on – whether you need to reschedule or are just running late. Think of the last time you had a salon or doctor’s appointment. Sometimes, they require some form of deposit to hold the time slot for you. In the

A Day In The Life: Alexis

A typical weekday starts the night before with a relaxing shower, after which my hair has the whole night to naturally dry in all its thick, curly glory. I wake up at 9am and begin my day with some sort of breakfast; eggs and Taylor ham are usually the go-to. Afterwards I venture back upstairs to begin the ever-wondrous beauty routine. Step 1 includes brushing and blow-drying the mane I call hair. Step 2 entails some sort of hair hot

Boston DOR 2017: “What a wonderful competition!” Part 2

By- arthurmurraydancestudioofcranford

Dancing continues on Saturday with the open category. For this division, teachers and dancers are not limited to syllabus material. Many let loose on the floor, whether executing well rehearsed choreography or adding their own special touch to the moves. Recognizing the desire for an environment more suited for social dancing, Arthur Murray now includes club-style events. Rather than looking for perfect footwork and frame, adjudicators want to see a strong connection between the dancers – as if the two
