Arthur Murray Miami presents three private classes, two group classes and two practice sessions for $400. During dad’s personal lessons, he’ll receive the specialized and personalized teaching necessary to achieve the goals in dancing. If he needs special instruction in the technique or style of a dance, his private instructor will spend the time necessary for improvement and will keep an up-to-date record of everything he learns. Group lessons are an important aid to private instruction. In group classes, Arthur Murray stresses technique, style, and variation of patterns. Dad will be introduced to new dance material as well as reviewing and improving the dances learned during your private instruction lessons. They have group classes for different dances and levels. Practice parties are exactly that, a practice for the party. Arthur Murray’s practice sessions allow dad to practice what he’s learned under supervision. He’ll also have the opportunity to dance with different people in a “party” environment to make him more comfortable before taking it into the real world. Call 305-372-1170 for details.
