My fiancee and I were nervous about dancing in front of everybody at the reception, we both have two left feet and no rhythm whatsoever. George helped us learn and become comfortable with the basics, while designing a routine to get us through the first dance. He was our biggest cheerleader and a great support. Regina was also an excellent teacher and truly wonderful to work with. Both were very understanding of our busy schedules and frantic mindset days before the wedding. Thanks to them, our first dance was a huge success!!
My DH and I love to dance and wanted to do something really special for our first dance. Arthur Murray choreographed a dance routine for us to Faithfully by Journey and we had so much fun! Our first dance was a huge hit. We got tons of compliments!
I went to the ARTHUR MURRAY DANCE STUDIO OF PASADENA to take lessons for mine and my dads father/daughter dance. My dad was very nervous but the staff there made him feel comfortable and he now loves dancing! We danced a Rumba/Swing, Regina made it fun,quick, & easy! What more could we ask for?! We had so much fun and it gave my dad the confidence that he needed to make our father/daughter dance memorable, sweet, but most of all fun! Thank you so much! It is something i will charish forever!
My groom and I are enrolled at Arthur Murray. Our instructor is Kimberly and she's really fun and easygoing. We do not want a strict choreographed routine so we're learning basic dances (foxtrot, ballroom, rhumba) with added elements (second position breaks, turns, etc.). We signed up for their wedding package and it's really helped us. My FI does NOT dance at all and tonight he said that he is really seeing progress in his dancing and that all his friends will be impressed.
Arthur Murray is pricier but I think it's worth it. We'll now be able to use our dance skills for the rest of our lives and especially when we go on cruises. We first tried to take group lessons at Pasadena Ballroom and it was inadequate for what we wanted. My FI was very frustrated with their teaching style and we didn't make any progress. The AM lessons have been just what we needed. I recommend them.
FOLLOW UP 4/8/07: It's one month until our wedding and boy have we seen progress in our dance! FI knows the steps and feels confident. I am extremely pleased we decided to go with Arthur Murray!
It wasn't so long ago that a couple's first dance as man and wife, as special as it was, was only an effervescent memory - a fact that was no small blessing for couples who happened to be poor dancers. With the advent of home video, a newlywed couple's first dance is almost always recorded on tape, available down through the years for all of posterity to see.
That's why prospective brides and grooms who want to give a polished and graceful performance on the their big day are increasingly opting to take dance lessons to help prepare for what may be the performance of their lifetimes.
