The end of 2016 is nearly upon us! The holidays are winding down, the days are beginning to get longer, and people are looking back over their New Year’s Resolutions—some with pride, some with amusement, some with exasperation, and some with a last bolt of panic.

The good news for everyone who’s wanted to learn new moves this year: Arthur Murray Dance Center of Cranford is hosting one last Guest Party before the year is up! The theme is Near Year’s Resolution, so it’s perfect for anyone who has wanted to learn a new skill, get a little exercise, become more social, or try something new.

Our dance center’s New Year’s Resolution Guest Party starts at 8:15 p.m. on Friday, December 30th. Students are encouraged to bring friends, family, or coworkers to our guest parties. We only ask that they RSVP beforehand with our guest director, Colleen. Refreshments will be served, including champagne to help ring in the New Year (a little early).

The evening begins with a special group class, where guests are offered beginner dance lessons to a couple of different dances so that they can handle a variety of social dance situations. Everything is taught at a beginner’s level, so no prior experience is required. Guests will learn new steps, how to interact with a partner, and about various types of music.

Afterward, guests are immediately able to show off their new moves. The dance center hosts a practice party, where each song comes with announced choreography that people can use, and guests are free to choose partners as they wish. Our students are also there to practice and have a good time, so there are a wide variety of dances and skill levels. Instructors will be there to act as partners and to answer questions, too, but will not be instructing like in class. They’re there to help our dancers have a good time showcasing their new skills.
