It will be three years this August since my wife and I started taking lessons at Arthur Murray, Ashburn VA. You will not find a better place to learn how to dance. We became fans of “Dancing with the Stars” and finally decided to take dance lessons. Neither of us had ever danced before unless you count jumping around in a club or swaying slowly together to a slow tune. The best thing about Arthur Murray is its organized approach to teaching dance. The syllabus is outstanding in that the step you learn in one dance can be slightly modified to fit another. In no time at all you feel confident to do the East Coast Swing, Cha-Cha, Rumba, etc. in public. We became hooked on dancing as a hobby when after about six months of lessons we decided to do a few basic Rumba steps on an empty dance floor at a bar in Chantilly. The people in the bar applauded, and we were hooked. No more sitting around at Company parties or in bars with a dance floor. Dance is great recreation for any married couple. The facility and instructors are first class and if you are single, the place to be is the practice party on Thursdays in Ashburn. Lots of ladies that just want to dance. Plenty of parking with oodles of restaurants close by.
