If you haven’t noticed by now, we at Arthur Murray of New Jersey are pretty passionate about our company and the services we provide. We consider ourselves the cream of the crop when it comes to dance classes NJ has to offer. Why? What sets us apart and above the competition? These are important questions, and to answer them for yourself you need to know what to look for. Here are a few to help you find your perfect dance studio:
1) Find an Instructor Who is Focused on Helping You, Not on Losing You
We save our competitive nature for the dance competitions. At other studios, you may be surprised to find that the staff is constantly competing with each other over your lessons. While that sounds like good old fashioned capitalism at work, it’s really detrimental to you. Instead of taking the time to develop skills, teachers who are scared of losing you to another instructor will show you less useful steps and never challenge you to be better for fear of losing your business to a rival. It’s a total waste of your time, and it all goes on behind closed doors. The dance classes NJ Arthur Murray studios provide are focused entirely on your growth. You work with all of our teachers here, and we all cooperate to make sure you’re developing as a dancer at your own speed!
2) Don’t Just Look For Dance Classes, But a Dance Community
Any old person can rent space in someone else’s ballroom and “teach dance classes”. Yet if you’re not joining a community of dancers, you can never be sure what sort of service you’re receiving. When you’re part of a network of dancers, spanning four studios, all taking the dance classes NJ Arthur Murray curriculum dictates, you know the investment you’re making in yourself will have returns. We guarantee it!
3) Try it Before You Buy it!
You probably don’t know a lot about dance right now, so you can’t judge your new instructor by quizzing him about his knowledge. Instead, use your gut. Ask questions that will help you keep track of whether your new instructor is keeping his promises. What is his plan for you?
Once you know that, ask for a tryout session. Dancers do this with each other all the time — have a sample lesson from your instructor and make sure your personalities mesh.
4) Dedicate Yourself
Once you think you’re in a good spot, don’t leave it! Dance classes work best when you invest your time into making them work. If you practice at home, and come to group classes and dance parties your studio offers, you can improve at a faster speed than if you just have private lessons. At Arthur Murray we use group classes and dance parties to help you use what you’re learning.
