Why Should I Attend the Arthur Murray Holiday Show?

There are many reasons why you should attend the upcoming Arthur Murray Holiday Show on Sunday, December 16th at the Marriott DFW hotel. 

You will get a chance to practice your social dancing, experience what a “heat” will feel like if you have never attended one of our Showcases or Dance Festivals, and celebrate the holidays with dancing. Beyond that, you get to enjoy a relaxing holiday party, be a part of the Arthur Murray family for the holidays and we get a chance to bless you specifically for being a part of our family. 

It’s the holidays, everyone has a ton of little things to accomplish leading up to and around the holidays. So, why not enjoy a party that is relaxing and stress relieving all at the same time?! Getting the time to share moments about how dancing has changed your lives, what it means to you and to dance to holiday music in a relaxed fun atmosphere is the essence of family fun. All you have to do is show up in a nice outfit, enjoy something that you obviously love, eat and have fun! 

You should also attend the Holiday Show in order to spend time with your Arthur Murray family during the holidays. This is the time of year that people visit or entertain family. Why wouldn’t you spend some of the holidays with us? It is sincerely heartwarming to have the time and opportunity to go to an event with so many people whom we don’t always get time with at the studio, and hearing stories of life and love of dancing. 

Ultimately, we get to share our heart; we get to share the relaxation, the community, the comfort, and the blessings we get from dancing everyday. Everyone should go to the Holiday show to get a concentrated dose of anything and everything that Arthur Murray means for them and we can build memories together that bring us all closer and last a lifetime!

Don’t miss this wonderful year end event. Please see your teacher or studio manager for more details.
