Basic Introductory Program
The Basic Introductory Program develops the most important dances you plan to use immediately at a basic level. Emphasis is placed on three important elements of dancing; (1) foot position, (2) rhythm and timing, (3) leading or following with enough variety to keep your learning experience interesting.
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 the 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 is the complete social dance program taught by 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 lead and following regardless of your partner, the music, or the type of dance floor.
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. The 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 a more professional style and look on the dance floor.
Our Gold standard is for the hobby dancer interested in performances, exhibitions, or competitions. Its intricate patterns can only 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. Although there is much work involved in this program, you will truly be regarded as an outstanding dancer.
