If you want to learn to dance for the 1st time, get better with the amount of dancing you already know how to do, then Arthur Murray Shoreline is the place to go. I started taking lessons there 7 months ago, and it is so much fun to know that I can know go into a club on a Saturday night and "hold my own" on the dance floor, doing the Salsa, Cha-Cha, Swing, Waltz, Rumba, and Foxtrot...I never knew the difference between any of them 7 months ago. I have so much fun with my instructors, and yet, they still challenge me to improve my technique, my balance, my footwork. And the health benefits are a major bonus--my legs are stronger, I am no longer pre-diabetic (1st time in 8 years), and joy I get from being with my new friends keep me going back.
I love it here!! I use to have a regular gym membership and take the zumba and kickboxing classes there but it just wasn't the same. First of all, it's not nearly as personalized. Those instructors do numerous classes a day, so I understand their reasoning for not knowing exactly who they are teaching and how to make them better, but it just wasn't for me. I love the individualized attention here, no matter who's instructing. I'm not a treadmill kind of girl so consider me a student for life!
