We know you want to have fun, but you also want to learn to dance. Really learn. You want dance to become second nature. You want to move naturally and flawlessly on the floor.

That’s why we teach using the proven Arthur Murray method. And why our dance instructors are required to maintain up-to-date qualifications.

When you take ballroom dance lessons at the Arthur Murray Dance Centre Adelaide, you’ll be taught by world-leading dance instructors.

Arthur Murray believed anyone could learn to dance if they were shown the right way how. His easy-to-learn method of teaching started dance crazes across America in the 1920’s and 30’s. He even taught high profile celebrities including Eleanor Rossevelt and John D. Rockefeller Jr.

Today, Arthur Murray’s philosophy and teaching methods continue in over 280 dance studios across 22 countries. And as a student of the Arthur Murray Dance Centre Adelaide, you can access any one of those global studios to continue your dance instruction when you travel.

The Arthur Murray system is based on a foundation of true scholastic learning, mixed with the fun and enjoyment that people have found in dance for centuries. It’s a proven formula that has been delivered across the globe for over 100 years.
