SEE WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING
“I Joined Arthur Murray Cypress in November of 2014, wanting nothing more than to be good at the tango. I attended the “All American” themed showcase where I watched the most beautiful performance of the tango, performed by my dance instructor Christopher Muller and his student Karen. In that particular moment I realized I wanted to become a ballroom dancer at Arthur Murray’s. Today on November 19th, of 2015 I can whole heartedly say I love every single dance I’ve ever learned at Arthur Murray’s, including the tango. I’ve performed a total of six spotlights’ and have gained so much confidence in myself. Albert Einstein once said “Dancers are the athletes of God.” Ballroom dancing is classified as a dance sport, so every time I step on the dance floor I feel like a goddess. I owe it all to Arthur Murray, thank you!”
-Dr. Eric Miller, D.D.S
“My wife and I had wanted to learn to dance for years but it wasn’t until our daughter’s approaching wedding that we called Arthur Murray Cypress on the recommendation of a friend. We came in with the idea of taking a few lessons to get us ready for the wedding but we quickly realized how much fun we were having and kept on going.
I can’t say enough good things about the instructors-they are true professionals who have passion for what they do. We especially enjoy working with our private instructor. The group lessons are great and the dance parties are always fun. We’ve really enjoyed getting to know the other students as well. We are even participating in some of the competition events. We’re hooked!”
“Having danced for over 5 years, competed in over 40 competitions and performances, over 2400 competition entries, earned 60 pro-am and amateur couples’ ballroom dance titles and look forward to next year should suffice to explain my feelings about dance. My dance experience began out of necessity. I needed to learn how to dance one dance – for my daughter’s wedding. Having accomplished that goal, I tried my hand or feet, at competing. The very first competition whetted my appetite for this type of challenge and opportunity. As with most things in my life, once I decided to pursue this goal, I was all-in. Much like my attitude about being a patriotic American, I knew I needed to” put my heart into it or get my butt out”! There would be no other way for me to approach it. Shortly after my “Dance Journey” began, I started writing a book about it. The first year the book grew to over 200 pages and could have ended. The sequel or second year started with picking up where the first year (book) ended. However, it turned into a “dance diary” and has continued for the past 3 years. There are approximately 1000 pages of my experiences, so far. All true and accurate and some entries are raw and uncensored. All are from the heart. My experience as an amateur pro-am and amateur couples competition dance student have produced similar results of my career as a high school and college athlete and subsequent 10 year professional coaching career. I have experienced the highest highs and the lowest lows, the thrill of victory and sometimes, the agony of defeat. It has challenged me, even in my 6th decade of life. God help me. I love it. I would rather be a competitor, someone who, although bloodied, covered in sweat and grime from preparation and effort, even in defeat, knows the thrill of the challenge rather than one of those tired and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat. Or, in the words of Garth Brooks, “I can’t abide standing outside the fire”. I relish being right there in the middle of it, regardless of how tough it sometimes is. The rewards are worth the effort.”
