What made you decide to open your gym or studio?

Dancing changed my life for the better and I wanted to share the experience and joy of dance with others.
What services do you offer? The Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom of Greenwich is open seven days per week. In the morning we offer Yoga, Zumba, Ballet, Pilates-style mat work and Zoom-Barre, and then we have Smooth and Latin Ballroom dancing daily from 1 to 10 p.m.
Do you offer any little extras? The Studio is a Regency period Ballroom with sparkling chandeliers, acomplimentary refreshment bar, Sunday brunch, weekly parties and special events for all students.
Does your studio or gym offer private and group sessions? The Arthur Murray system is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2012 and is based on private lessons along with nightly group classes and practice sessions designed to perfect the art of social dancing.
How many calories can a client expect to burn in a typical workout? Each 45-minute lesson can burn between 400 and 600 calories and does not require any special equipment or clothing

 

What’s the most rewarding part of your job? Seeing positive changes in people’s lives through the joy of dance.
