FAQ – Dance Lessons

How do I get started?
Getting started is easy. The first step is to schedule an introductory dance lesson with one of our trained instructors in Indiana. We cater to all of northwest Indiana: Valparaiso, Dyer, Crown Point, and Chesterton. During that lesson, your instructor will determine your current level and recommend an appropriate course for you to continue. To set up your introductory lesson now, call or e-mail us.

How long will it take?
The length of your course will depend on how many dances you want to learn and how proficient you wish to become in each dance. However, you will be able to dance after your first lesson!

How much do lessons cost?
Tuition varies, depending on a number of factors. For Example, how good you want to be, what dances you want to learn, and your dance schedule. After your introductory lesson, your instructor will recommend a program and will be able to answer any questions you may have, so you will have the knowledge to make an informed choice.

Can I really learn to dance?
Yes. Dancing is as easy as walking once you are taught how by an Arthur Murray expert. We teach simple, basic elements, from which the steps are derived. Hundreds of thousands of people have been successfully trained in Arthur Murray Dance Studios. There is no age limit.

When can I take dance lessons?
You can take your lessons any time you wish. Our dance studio in northwest Indiana is a short drive for the surrounding areas: Valparaiso, Dyer, Crown Point, Chesterton, and we stay open Mon-Fri from 1pm-10pm, and Sat from 10am-7pm.

Will I have a good teacher?
You’ll have the best teacher. All of our dance instructors must
complete a most arduous training regimen. They are experienced
on the dance floor and knowledgeable in techniques to help you
learn to master today’s popular dances. The instructors selected
for you are ones we know will best suit your personality.

Is your system of teaching difficult?
Not at all. We are famous for making learning fun and easy. We
teach four simple basic movements, from which the new
combinations are derived.

What benefits do I receive?
Dancing is your first line of social activity. Good dancing is a
lifetime investment in fun, poise, confidence, improved personality
and new friends. Beyond these, dancing is a superb physical
conditioner, providing fun without working at it! Learning to dance

year-round social calendar.
