What our clients are saying...
My fiance and I took a series of classes at Arthur Murray to prepare a routine for our first dance at our wedding. We were blown away by how well they prepared us for our special day! Cameron, Maria, and Joel did a phenomenal job of helping us build the perfect routine and learn to dance it confidently! We were complete beginners coming into the classes, and they did a phenomenal job teaching us about the basics of dancing as well as more advanced techniques...
Finding a studio with instructors like Maria and Joel has been a blessing. I registered for an open salsa night and it was fantastic. Not only was Joel great at instructing the group but we had so much fun doing it too. His energy is contageous. They performed a dance in some shiny outfits, it was SO FUN! What.An.Experience!! Joel even asked me to dance and helped me one-on-one to teach me. Definitely makes you feel welcomed. Can't wait to come back
Y’all I RAVE about Arthur Murray of Durham to every person I meet! I danced in college, but hadn’t taken one-on-one lessons until coming here. They are extremely knowledgeable, make you feel right at home regardless of skill level, and have developed a sense of community between all the students and honestly anyone who walks through the door. All are welcome and anyone can dance. If you’ve been thinking about learning/taking lessons/etc, this is the place!!
