Arthur Murray first started teaching people to dance in 1912.  Starting with a "learn to dance at home" mail order business, he founded his first dance studio in 1923 on 43rd Street in New York City.  Since that time, the Arthur Murray Franchised Dance Studios have grown and now have studios all over the world.  Arthur Murray's dream of teaching the world to dance is being fulfilled.  Come to Arthur Murray of Sarasota and learn how to dance a variety of modern and traditional dance moves. Our professional instructors will teach you the basics of ballroom dancing:  Fox Trot, Waltz, Swing, Rumba, Tango, Cha Cha, the Hustle, and many others.
