Testimonials

  • The Arthur Murray Winter Park studio has been a part of my routine for 10 years now. What kept me there? It's not just the dancing, which I love and had been doing on and off during my life, but the social life it has afforded me with gentle refined people who (for individualized reasons) share the same love of dance. I not only regained self-respect that had been lost due to life's hardships, but gained a confidence on and off the dance floor. This would not have been possible in a different scenario than what this studio offers. From the opportunities to fulfill various dance goals to the offering of all levels of dance expertise and dance commitment. From the most ardent of student competitors to the most sincere of wedding couples; each goal and commitment is honored and thoughtfully planned. We are all given thought to a schedule of plans and then skillfully taught. Ten years with the same studio, and I am not the only "long-timer"--there are several of us. They definitely are doing several things right. I am proud to be one of them!!!
