“How did we get started with Arthur Murray Dance Center of Gaithersburg? A cruise to the Bahamas, a lucky phone call, and someone else’s poor planning.
We had been on our 25th anniversary cruise to the Bahamas, and had a wonderful time dancing on the deck at midnight after our salsa lessons on board. We enjoyed this so much that we decided to try dance lessons here at home, and found a Groupon for local classes, but not an Arthur Murray Dance Center of Gaithersburg Groupon. So, we went to the other place (which we discovered was in a converted warehouse) and tried to get scheduled for the advertised ballroom classes, and tried, and tried again, and we gave up on the other place.
We then Googled for local alternatives and found Arthur Murray Dance Center of Gaithersburg. We called the studio, introduced ourselves to Sherry over the phone, and told her our sad story. Her response: “Can you come tonight for a group class?” Sixteen months later, we’re still here, having an amazing amount of fun with so many new friends. At the beginning, we were apprehensive since we knew so little, but our instructors got us over the jitters, other students encouraged us, and we realized that Arthur Murray Dance Center of Gaithersburg could teach anybody, even us, to look terrific on the dance floor.”
