Stop "Sitting this Dance Out"
So you’ve received another invitation to another wedding. As you look at the RSVP card, you are reminded of all of the recent social occasions when you literally “sat it out.” Hanging at your table or at the bar while everyone else was having a blast on the dance floor. For some, the mere thought of dancing makes them cringe. The number one reason why? Not actually knowing how to dance!
Student Spotlight: A Dance Journey Nobody Saw Coming
Some people watch Dancing With the Stars. Others see something on Youtube or admire those who can get out there and do it at a wedding. Yet for Joann Becker, her dance journey didn’t start like that. It wasn’t possible. She just wanted some type of physical activity to do for fun, something she never had in her life before. She first tried yoga, but they told her she needed basic understanding in order to attend the classes. So instead she wandered into Arthur Murray to see if they were willing to teach a blind person that had never danced before.

Happy National Dance Day!
