How Learning to Dance Reconnects You With Your Community

One of the best things about learning to dance isn’t actually about the dancing at all. Dancing is about making connections and finding a community. We spend a lot of our time busy on the screen and we forget how to connect with people right here, one on one.

A lot of people who learn to dance with Arthur Murray do so while also learning how to reconnect with the people in their lives and the communities they live in. Modern technology has made it possible to live from home. Shopping, entertainment, and even friendship can happen with the click of a button. But as humans, we need face to face interaction, touch, and socialization. Hiding behind a screen may be convenient but takes a toll on our mental or physical health.

Ask yourself; when was the last time you met a new person? Or took a class to learn new skill?

Through charity events, dinners out, dancing about the town, and the friendships that blossom within the walls of the studio, Arthur Murray students get to build community connection while having fun and gaining a skill they will use the rest of their lives.

Whether you want to meet new people, stay connected with your friends, or just learn something new for yourself, learning to dance with Arthur Murray gives you a community to enjoy life to the fullest with.
