Why You Should Dance The Paso Doble!

By- arthurmurraydancestudioofcranford

Paso Doble might not be a dance you immediately think of when you think of Ballroom dance. You might not even be aware it is a Ballroom dance, or perhaps you only think of it as “that dramatic bullfighting one”. While that is not incorrect, you may not see the many reasons you should invest some time in learning about this dance. Paso Doble translates to “double step” in Spanish. It is based heavily upon Spanish bullfighting, but the dance

Dances of the Roarin’ Twenties

By- arthurmurraydancestudioofcranford

The 1920s were an era known for its dramatic attitude — wild, carefree, extravagant, and a party all night long. Prohibition couldn’t stop the speakeasies or debauchery, dance halls featured dance marathons lasting days (or weeks!), and the public didn’t want the party to stop. And what’s a party without dancing? Many dances were popular in the 1920s. Some are still known and beloved today, whereas others have faded into history books. Dancing was the social activity, among all ages

Do’s & Don’t’s Of Ballroom Dance Group Class

By- arthurmurraydancestudioofcranford

DON’T’S: DON’T teach other students! Even if there is a difference in skill or experience level, only the instructors are qualified to teach group class. No matter how good your intentions are, it can quickly become a case of the blind leading the blind. DON’T bring your bad attitude to group class. We understand that stressful days happen, and we understand that Arthur Murray is your happy place where you get rid of the stress. So do your best to

But What IS Freestyles?

By- arthurmurraydancestudioofcranford

Whether you’ve heard the term from an instructor or another student, or saw it on the calendar, or heard it in an event announcement, or have seen the poster in our studio — we like to talk about our events here, in case it weren’t obvious — you’ve probably heard the term “Freestyles” before. Of course, hearing about something is very different from knowing what it is, so you may still be wondering — what is Freestyles? Think of Freestyles as

An Interview With: Chris!

What is your favorite part of the Arthur Murray day? Of the Arthur Murray day, my favorite part would have to be the end of it – not because it is over, but because I have had the chance, nay, the privilege to interact with and teach so many students from all different walks of life and know that I, as well as our entire studio, has made a positive impact on their day and life.   What do you

A Day In The Life: Kennedy

By- arthurmurraydancestudioofcranford

I start my day by waking up to wet kisses from my cute, furry friend. She usually snuggles up right by MY side for a while until I get up. Once I’m up, I like to hit the ground running by setting my priorities straight and heading downstairs to make a cup of coffee for Colleen and myself – then the day may begin. I’ll iron and shower, and on the way out, I’ll grab food that I cooked myself

When I was young, I used to put on shows for my mom.

A Day In The Life: Val

By- arthurmurraydancestudioofcranford

Most days are pretty routine for me, with a tight schedule and a lot of structure. I wake up between 9 and 10am, depending on if I need to run any errands, like picking up dry cleaning or shopping for food for the Friday night Practice Sessions. My morning routine includes an ab workout, a hot shower, breakfast, and packing work clothes and anything else I might need for the day. I’m out the door around 10:45am to make it
