Foundation Program The Foundation Program is designed as an introduction to today's most popular social dances which you will use immediately. Emphasis is placed on the three most important elements of dancing: (1) foot position, (2) rhythm and timing, and (3) leading and following with enough variety to keep your learning experience interesting, fun and easy. The introductory lesson allows you to come into the studio and meet your teacher. It's the perfect avenue to begin working on your immediate dancing needs and to evaluate future goals.
Associate Bronze Program The Associate Bronze Program will help you acquire freer movement around the floor while expanding your variety, technique, and footwork. Associate Bronze dancers also begin to develop portrayal of a dance's characteristics in the form of styling. This dance program is very popular with those wanting to get on the dance floor quickly.
Full Bronze Program Full Bronze is the complete social dance program taught by the Arthur Murray Dance Studios. It's designed to develop timing and techniques in all Social Dances selected by the student. The styling will make you look and feel comfortable on the dance floor and strengthen your leading and following regardless of your partner, the music being played or the type of dance floor. Bronze dancers have all the confidence anyone would need on the floor. Dancing techniques at this level will be yours to keep as you'll never forget the elements of each dance. This level is the fun point in dancing when you don't have to think, but can enjoy your partner and begin having fun yourself.
Silver Program Silver is the dance standard with a high degree of styling. More elaborate movements ensure the Silver dancer will stand out on any dance floor. Continuity of movements makes a couple glide across the dance floor with many natural directional changes. Styling, technique, balance, and control take on an entirely new meaning. This is the beginning of the more professional standard used mainly on the ballroom floor.
Gold Program Our Gold standard is for the stars, and is strictly for the hobby dancer interested in performances, exhibitions or competitions. Its intricate patterns are only to be used when both partners are proficient. Choreography, styling, technique, and showmanship are necessities in this standard. This material is generally not used on a crowded floor. There is a lot of work involved in this program, but you will truly be regarded as an outstanding dancer, able to excel in any dance.
