Have you ever thought about taking ballroom dancing lessons? Perhaps you are a big fan of the popular TV shows “Dancing with the Stars” or “World of Dance.” Or, maybe you have already heard what so many people now know to be scientific fact: dancing makes you happy! It’s true! Ballroom dancing helps to lower blood pressure and reduces depression while boosting confidence and self esteem.
Of course, many people want to learn to dance, but feel they don’t have the time to dance or the ability to learn. The highly skilled dance instructors at Arthur Murray’s Manchester Dance Center, led by owner Ron Townsend, say you have no idea what you are missing!
In fact, Townsend says, “whatever objection you have to dancing is the exact reason you have to do it!” If you are stressed out, dancing will relax you. If you are shy and worried about looking foolish, dancing will give you the confidence you need to be successful on the dance floor - and beyond.
If anyone knows the benefits of ballroom dancing, it’s Townsend. “After years of watching students embrace the amazing benefits of ballroom dancing, I love seeing what dancing does for people; they become more confident, more relaxed and less stressed. Marriages are strengthened and new friendships are forged. They come here to dance but they gain so much more.”
Everyone who comes to Arthur Murray Manchester finds themselves immersed in a community of friends. And, there are so many success stories here. For example, Townsend recalls Steve and Nancy. When he met them, he says he wasn’t even sure how they agreed to give dancing a try. They were so distant and were barely speaking to each other when they first walked in the door.
Townsend tells the story. “The couple explained that they were close to splitting up but didn’t want to give up on each other. They thought the romance of dancing might be worth a try,” he said. “Today, they are a different couple. It’s been 10 years since that first free lesson at Arthur Murray’s Manchester Dance Center. These two beautiful people reconnected through dancing and they wholeheartedly believe it was dance that saved their marriage.”
Today, Steve and Nancy share their love of ballroom dancing with friends at the Manchester dance center. They are two of the reasons why this center is often described as a comfortable place to go where friends become family. Experienced students are always excited to welcome new students.

“For technique and expert instruction, Arthur Murray is the place to go. Alternatively, if you need to learn enough to dance at a wedding, they can make that happen.”

“Inspired by an upcoming trip on the QM2, my husband and I signed up for dance lessons at the Arthur Murray studio in Manchester NH. We have taken 25 lessons from their team of instructors. For fifty-two years my husband said he couldn’t dance. We cannot believe what we have accomplished through their patience and skilled guidance.”
