An Interview With: Colleen!
What is your favorite part of the Arthur Murray day?
“When I make my student smile because they love what they do and they realize that they CAN do it.”
What do you do for fun when not at Arthur Murray?
“I catch up on my favorite TV shows and series, while snuggling with my pup.”
How did you start dancing?
“I always loved dancing. When I was young, I used to put on shows for my mom. I started professionally after meeting Kennedy and got offered the job. I knew it would be perfect for me.”
How did you find Arthur Murray?
“It’s a funny story actually. I used to waitress at a restaurant, and one day Kennedy and a former coworker came in to eat. They sat at my table and offered me the job. The rest was history.”
What’s your favorite dance?
“Hard to say, because they’re all so different and it depends on my mood. I think I’ll go with Viennese Waltz. It’s so elegant and graceful. I love the swift, turning movements of it and how it glides across the dance floor.”
Funniest dance moment?
“For one Showcase, my student and I wore wigs for the performance. That day, due to the excessive amount of hairspray in my hair, I could not pin the wig into my hair fully. Once I got on stage and started dancing, the wig started to come off. I had to keep dancing with the wig flopping around. The show must go on!”
What’s your dance dream?
“My dream is to continue getting better in my dancing and in my teaching so I can inspire others to keep working on their own dance dreams.”
How do you feel about group classes?
“I love group classes. I truly believe that they are an essential key to learning, aside from personal lessons. Not only do they refine a step that you may or may not know, but they teach you how to lead and follow better and much quicker! You’ll be dancing with multiple partners, not just one. Plus, it’s always fun to be surrounded by a group of people who are interested in the same hobby.”
