Our friendly dance teachers
Committed, Passionate, Fun and Welcoming
At Arthur Murray® Dance Studio Chatswood our instructors are specially trained and certified in how to dance and how to teach, so they are able to show you with easy today’s most popular dances one step at a time. Our teachers are always striving to make your private dance lessons, group classes, practice sessions and social nights as fun and enriching as possible.
So whether you’re a brand new student or someone who’s taken lessons since we opened – the environment at Arthur Murray Chatswood is like walking into a family gathering or your regular golfing foursome. It’s comfortable, spirited, and accessible. If being an “elite dance studio” means that you have to be a cold-hearted perfectionist, then the staff and executives are the furthest from that. However, if you define “elite dance studio” as the place that makes you feel like you can let loose, make a mistake, and laugh about it later – then they are, by definition, exactly that. At our Chatswood studio, you will have fun learning how to dance! We guarantee it!
Our certified instructors will have you up and dancing within the first 10 minutes of your lesson. Using the official Arthur Murray teaching methods, we can teach you how to say yes any time a dance situation presents itself.Sign Up Now
