December 16th marked our third annual Murray Awards celebration! The banquet event was held in our Cranford dance studio, beginning at 7 p.m. It was catered with delicious food, so our many guests were sure to bring their appetites!
We hold the Murray Awards as a thank you to our students for their loyalty and commitment. The party celebrates YOU! Every year, it is an excellent opportunity to get dressed to the nines, celebrate with your fellow students, and see who has won the variety of awards we give out.
This year we gave out a wide assortment of awards. We honored the students who have been with us for five or more years. There was a Most Improved Dancer category, which was decided completely by student vote—the staff had no input. As always, there was the coveted Best Accidental Step Award. Categories change yearly, so there are always surprises in store.
Here at the Arthur Murray Dance Center of Cranford, we greatly appreciate the trust and loyalty of our students. Whether it’s a student’s first or tenth year with us, we’re thankful that they chose us to help them on their dance journey. We have the greatest student base around, and we are indescribably proud of all of you. The Murray Awards are a chance for us to give back just a little sliver of the appreciation, trust, and devotion that you have shown us.
