teaching methods

At Arthur Murray Hillsborough, we believe in a holistic approach to dance education. Our methods are designed to enhance your learning experience, ensuring you not only learn the steps but also the essence of dance.


Dance Lessons

Private lessons are the cornerstone of our teaching approach. They offer personalized attention, allowing you to progress at your own pace and focus on specific dance styles or techniques you wish to master.


Dance Classes

Group lessons cater to different dance styles and levels, ensuring you’re always paired with students at your level. While we encourage dancing with different partners for a holistic learning experience, you’re never required to switch partners. Whether you come solo or with a partner, our goal is for you to excel in your dance journey.

Diverse Interaction

Dance with different partners and teachers, enriching your learning experience.

Reinforce Learning

Repeating patterns with various partners helps commit them to memory.

Develop Skills

Emphasis on leading, following, and pattern variations.

Social Interaction

Meet other students and build good dance habits.


Dance Parties

We hold scheduled dance parties (practice sessions) for all our students. These practice parties are held on a weekly basis. This gives you the opportunity to practice and try out all the new dance skills that you’ve learned in your Personal Dance Lessons, Group Lessons and Dance Classes.  Dance parties provide a fun environment to practice your moves, meet fellow dancers, and enjoy the vibrant Arthur Murray community.

Inclusivity at Arthur Murray

Everyone is welcome at Arthur Murray Hillsborough. Whether you’re single or with a partner, our studio is designed to make everyone feel at home. You’re never penalized for being single; in fact, it’s an opportunity to dance with a variety of partners and learn even more!
