    I have been dancing at Arthur Murray in Merrillville Indiana for over 10 years now! I love it! Great fun! Great. Exercise! Great friends!

    I came to the Merrillville Center at the request of my significant other to learn to dance for the upcoming weddings of five grandchildren and nieces. I had never attempted anything like this but was willing to try it to please her. I was 70 years old at the time but was willing to see if an old dog could indeed learn some new tricks. The staff at the Merrillville Center are warm, genuine people who are incredibly talented and most of all know how to teach ballroom dancing. It is one of the most interesting, challenging and fun undertakings I’ve ever been part of while also being great exercise. Judy and I are planning to be involved with dancing and the Merrillville Studio for the foreseeable future as we continue to advance our skills in such dances as the waltz, foxtrot, cha-cha, merengue, hustle and rumba. As I said the Arthur Murray staff have each become like family to us and we look forward to being a part of this family for years to come.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We always recommend every new student come in for an introductory lesson to get acquainted with our teaching style and for us to get to know their goals to best service them.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Arthur Murray is a 108+ year old company that does all its certifications in-house. Every instructor comes through the Arthur Murray Interrelated System of Teaching, and is certified at a variety of levels to teach varying degrees of student's ability.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

We offer a $40 introductory lesson for new students. From there, packages are personalized to the specific goals of the student and range from $390-$790.

How did you get started teaching?

Arthur Murray has been teaching the world how to socially dance for over 108 years! The company's mission is to help put a little more fun into everyone's life by helping them try dancing.

What types of students have you worked with?

We work with all ages (8-80), fitness levels, and partner status! Whether you're a parent wanting your teenager to do something fun after school, a couple looking for a fun date night hobby, or a retiree wanting a more fun way to exercise then the treadmill––we're here for everyone!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We love doing bridal shows, sweet 16's, and community organization's events to add a little fun to the lives of people and businesses in our community.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

It is very important to find a well established dance studio with a great reputation and certified instructors. Our Northwest Indiana location has received the Times Newspaper's "Best of the Region" award for the last three years in a row! Look for a provider that will personalize a program for you and who guarantees your satisfaction.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

We'd recommend asking about their teaching history as well as their personal dance history. Also, always find out what their philosophy of teaching is toward their students. It's great to discover how you'll learn as well as what you'll learn.
