A Long History
Arthur Murray started teaching dance in 1912 at the Grand Palace in NYC. Arthur Murray’s success was largely due to the famous “footprints” mail order business, which soon to be dancers could place on the floor and follow to learn how to dance.
In 1923 he opened his first studio on 43rd street in New York City and in 1925, he launched the first Arthur Murray System of Teaching where he trained dance instructors for the Statler Hotel chain, who then went to various hotels and gave lessons.
His slogan was: If you can walk, we teach you how to dance. Today, Arthur Murray Franchised Dance Studios have grown to over 200 studios worldwide and now have studios on six continents.
