International Dance Festival

The Arthur Murray International Dance Festival

The Arthur Murray International Dance Festival (or “Spring Festival”) is a long running tradition for all Arthur Murray studios. It’s a 6 week contest where Arthur Murray schools of similar size compete in a variety of categories to see which school has the most participation over a 6 week period. Similar to “sweeps” on network television, the Spring Festival is a time where Arthur Murray schools pull out all the stops with theme parties, prizes, and special activities. Students who help the studio earn points win prizes like Arthur Murray apparel, gift cards, and free lessons.

The “Victory Performance” is a new feature we’ve added for the Redwood City, Hayward, Livermore, and Walnut Creek locations. This is intended to be something funny, eye catching, and memorable as a treat for the students that helped their school hit the goal the staff set for themselves. Want to help? Here’s how you can add points:

  • New Enrollments/Adding Lessons: Whether you’re starting a brand new program or making some minor adjustments to your current one, lesson enrollments are the top way of adding points for your studio.
  • Bring in a Guest: Arrange for a friend, co-worker, or family member to take advantage of our $99 Guest Special, and not only will you get an instant Free Lesson on your program, but you’ll also contribute to your school’s point total.
  • Accelerate your Payment Schedule: This is a great way to add points but an even better way to enjoy your dance program. We always want to find the most convenient way for our students to arrange their tuition, but if adjusting your payment schedule is an option you’ll be able to take your lessons based on your dance progress and momentum – not your payment schedule.
  • Taking Lessons: Yes, you are adding points just by taking your normal lessons. Yes, if you take more you’ll get more points, and you’ll make faster progress, lose weight, and have less stress. We’re sorry about that.
  • Party Points: Bring in a dish of enchiladas = points! Wear a costume at one of our theme parties = points. Win a hilarious party game = points.

So whether you’re motivated by the prizes, the Victory Performance, or if you just want to see your school hit their goal – the Spring Festival is the perfect activity to set the new benchmark for the staff and student body at Arthur Murray. As with any other activity, we want to create a fun and inviting atmosphere for our student body. Happy Festival!
