Competitive Dancing

Tuxedos, and rhinestones and judges, oh my!

Not everyone walks in and says that they want to wear costumes and dance in front of a judging panel… but some do. While most people will gradually work up to some of our exhibition events, others jump right in from the get go.

Some Interesting Facts:

There are Arthur Murray® exhibition events of every shape and size. They are all designed to put your dance floor self-confidence on the “fast track”.  Here are some examples:

  • In-Studio Events – these are designed to be a great starting point for students to get used to using their dancing in public. Whether it’s to eventually go to a larger event or just to work out the kinks of a wedding routine, this is the venue where it usually starts.

  • District Events – Four to six times per year there will be a larger event involving more than one studio in your area. These events will take place at a local hotel and the event will usually finish with a professional floor show and dinner. These are open to any skill level and it’s a great way to meet other Arthur Murray® students in the area.

  • Dance-O-Rama – This is the largest of the exhibition events. This event is held in great locations like Hawaii, Las Vegas, Miami, and even Italy. This is a multi-day event and students that participate in these definitely come home as changed dancers. There are students and teachers from Arthur Murray® studios all over the world in attendance, and they are held at some of the finest resort hotels you can find. If you’re looking for the glitz and glamour of what you see on television, this is it.

As with everything at Arthur Murray®, everything can be custom tailored to your learning style, desired skill level, and personal dance goals. Exhibitions and competitions are not a requirement for anyone to become a great dancer, but for those that choose to incorporate this into their program, they will find that it takes their hobby to the next level.
