An Interview With: Kennedy!

By- Arthur Murray Dance Centers of Cranford & Hillsborough

What is your favorite part of the Arthur Murray day? “I really enjoy our dinner time together. Laughing at random videos we come across, telling jokes, and talking about our lives makes it fun!”   What do you do for fun when not at Arthur Murray? “I enjoy exploring new places/restaurants. Watching TV shows, relaxing at home, and doing whatever Colleen wants, of course. I’m also guilty of being sucked into the Fortnite craze.”   How did you start dancing?

Dance Is Their Love Language

For Week 2 of our International Spring Festival, Romance is in the air! To celebrate, we interviewed three of our student couples about how dancing has changed their relationships. How did you meet your significant other?  Louie & Odette said: “We were classmates in Chemistry 3 class in College; Louie was in Pre-med; Odette was in Pre-nursing.” Matt & Caitlin said: “Caitlin and I met in our second year of college. We were both pledging a community service fraternity, a

A Day In The Life: Bailey

Fun fact: I am not a morning person. Thankfully, Arthur Murray has fairly convenient work times for my consciousness schedule. Less thankfully, I have stupidly thick hair and an aversion to blow drying it. So I have to get up to shower in the mornings, anyway. Boo on that. Showering’s the first order of business, since I have to maximize drying time, and like the excuse to stay fairly motionless in a heated setting while my brain comes online. I

Why You Should Dance The Paso Doble!

By- Arthur Murray Dance Centers of Cranford & Hillsborough

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- Arthur Murray Dance Centers of Cranford & Hillsborough

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- Arthur Murray Dance Centers of Cranford & Hillsborough

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- Arthur Murray Dance Centers of Cranford & Hillsborough

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!

By- Arthur Murray Dance Centers of Cranford & Hillsborough

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- Arthur Murray Dance Centers of Cranford & Hillsborough

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
