Foundation Program

Our Foundation Program is designed as a prelude to the popular social dances and the teaching methods of the Arthur Murray Dance Studios. It's designed to fulfill your immediate dance needs while allowing your instructor an opportunity to evaluate your dancing with respect to your future learning.  The Foundation Program develops the most important dances you plan to use immediately at a basic level. Emphasis is placed on 3 important elements of dancing with enough variety to keep your learning experience interesting:

  • Feet positioning
  • Beat of different types of music
  • Leading & Following basic techniques


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 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 lead 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 because they have reached the “fun point” in dancing. Dancing techniques at this level will be yours to keep as you'll never forget the elements of each dance.
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 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.
