Very Professional Staff - Gave me exactly what I asked for and more! 2/15/2008

I wanted to learn to dance, so at first I tried going to group classes in some other studios in the area. I was put into huge group lessons where I could not see the instructor or he see me. Then after the lesson while the regulars danced socially I became a wallflower, feeling like the chubby guy no one wanted to dance with. I was discouraged at best. Pros: Great staff, location, parking Cons: slightly spendy but worth it! more

Surprisingly fun and worth it 2/14/2008

I can't say that I wasn't apprehensive about going to a ballroom dance school for the first time but I didn't really have a choice. When my wife saw Dancing with the Stars on t.v., she just had to go in and try it out for herself. Not being a guy who normally goes for that kind of thing, somehow she still got me to go along. I probably stereotyped by thinking it was all going to be like the dancers on the show but I found out differently when we walked in the door. There were other couples there and they didn't look any different than I did. Just regular people. Our instructor was warm and friendly without being too overbearing and put my mind at ease right away by saying we were going to take it as slowly or as quickly as we were comfortable with. We ended up having a great time and even stuck around for a group class after our lesson. That was a few months ago and we've probably spent more money than we originally thought we would but, as our teachers told us, it really has been a great investment in our relationship. Gotta tell ya guys, this is a great way to win brownie points! LOL Seriously though, we have met some good friends and go out dancing on the weekends instead of sitting in front of the t.v. I've even dropped a couple of pounds. The staff are friendly, the parking was free, it was easy to find and it really was a lot of fun. The teachers always greet us with genuine smiles and call out our names from the dance floor. I feel like Norm from Cheers sometimes. LOL I wasn't sure about the Arthur Murray system they told us about but now that we've used it for a while it really works. We're actually going out swing and salsa dancing and I don't feel ridiculous doing it. We take a private lesson, go to a couple of group classes & go to the practice party once a week. Scheduling hasn't been a problem with all the teachers & all the events on the schedule. I'd definitely recommend checking out the $59 special like we did but be prepared to stick around. Pros: Great staff, easy to find, free parking, fun place to be Cons: Not open on Saturdays more

Beware of hard sell of $1000 lesson package after they get you in the door 11/20/2006

I took a couple of classes at Arthur Murray on Dexter in the summer of 2006, mainly out of a desire to try something new, and find a more social form of exercise. Pros: Friendly staff - Location is friendly for commute/parking Cons: The instructors will definitely try to press you to sign up for an expensive package of lessons more
