The Arthur Murray Studio in Ottawa provides an extremely pleasant environment, full of positive energy and vibe. It is the perfect way to spend (at least) an hour in one's buys schedule. The instructors are very pleasant and competent; they are bound to bring a smile to your face and a boost of positive energy. There is a very welcoming atmosphere by the members of the AM team and all of the other dancing students. These 2 factors make group lessons and parties very joyful events, even for the dancing novelists. The studio offers lessons on a wide variety of dancing styles at various levels and hence one can easily find his/her niche. The studio also organizes a number of events with different themes that can provide enough challenge and stimulation for continuous improvement. We are grateful to have such a professional dancing studio in Ottawa - Thank you. More...

I started ballroom dancing at the Arthur Murray Studio Many years ago, and I have never looked back. This activity has made my life better in so many ways, it’s hard to put into words. When I walk into the studio, I leave all my cares and stresses behind as the staff greet me with smiling faces. Everyone there is always in a good mood and so upbeat, they just help make the whole experience so much fun. The instructors are very professional and knowledgeable, not to mention extremely patient! I love the teaching method at Arthur Murray’s. The private lessons are my favourite. I find this way of learning very effective because the instructors follow the traditional Arthur Murray teaching method while tailoring every lesson to a student’s particular needs and goals. Ballroom dancing is also a fun way to get fit. When you’re taking a lesson, you’re focussing on what your feet, your arms, your hips are doing, and you don’t even realize that you are exercising. Another thing I find is that your level of fitness improves with your ability to dance. The more you learn, the more control you develop over your body and the more satisfaction you get out of it. The studio has various activities that students can participate in, so the opportunities to socialize and to meet new friends are numerous. Among these are the dance parties on Fridays. These keep you moving all evening and just put you in such a good mood. When you go home afterward, you feel refreshed and relaxed. There are also opportunities to showcase what you have learned by performing a dance in front of your fellow students on a Spotlight Night. While this can be nerve-wracking at first, it is invaluable as a means of improving your dancing and enjoying it more. It also helps you to develop your artistic expression (although this particular aspect has always been more of a challenge for me), and to gain self-confidence and poise. One of the highlights of my dancing life occurred in 2007, when I took part in my first competition. I was so nervous before I started, not knowing what to expect. However, after the first few dances, I just relaxed and had a wonderful time. The staff and other students participating in the competition were so supportive and encouraging, and everyone was friendly and pleasant. There were also dinners every evening as well as other activities. In terms of overall health, dancing has also provided me with many benefits. I am very healthy, have a lot of energy and am very active. I’m sure the dancing has had something to do with keeping me this way.I plan to continue to continue this activity for many years to come.

The instructors and staff at Arthur Murray Ottawa are highly encouraging, supportive and professional. As someone without any background in dance but with a strong interest in music and the arts, I always felt dance is something I wanted to explore. Starting from scratch and also being naturally bit shy, I felt very intimidated at first. However, I found a highly supportive environment where I could develop at my own pace while at the same time receiving objective guidance and encouragement from the instructors. After a couple months, ballroom dancing is now an active hobby of mine which I hope to continue for the long-term. I am very glad to have joined this school. More...

I have been with Arthur Murray for 8 years. It is a fantastic place to learn to dance. A partner is not required if you want to learn on your own. You will learn to dance from their knowledgeable instructors and there are always others to dance with at practice parties and events. It is a very supportive environment and a fun way to learn and enjoy ballroom dancing. More...

6 years ago when I joined Arthur Murray Ottawa my goal was not to be afraid of being asked to dance. I use to try and hide when I saw someone coming my way. Well, it didn't take long to get over that! Beautiful studio with a team of experienced instructors working together to help you meet and exceed your expectations. Why am I still there....because it's so much fun! More...

We started at the studio over 12 years ago, and are still there. Great instructors, and warm, inviting atmosphere make for the perfect place to learn, and practice. It is the only accredited dance school, which allows you to claim in on your taxes, making it comfortably affordable. We have met and maintained so many friends at this studio, and often refer to them as our dance family. It is always a great pleasure when we get to share a dance floor with them. Dancing is a perfect exercise, fun, and addictive. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed. More...

It was great that I have been here with this Arthur Murray Dance Center Ottawa since 2014 , it's professional instructors, teaching system and management. It's the best place to learn and practice social dance. I'm very sure that they are able to bring students from beginner to different levels. Strongly recommend THIS ONE from my own experiences if you have time, love to learn dance. Of course, some money should be planned in your budget to success. More...

I had always liked to learn to dance and I am so glad I took that first step nearly two years ago. I have since been attending dance classes regularly at the studio. My experience with the studio has been extremely positive and rewarding. The studio has a team of young, energetic, dedicated and highly skilled instructors. They know how to motivate, support and cultivating the love for dance in their students. Whatever your personal goals might be, they are happy to accommodate.

I have witnessed amazing transformation with many initially shy and awkward students just after a few months into their learning. Most students would like to be able to dance with confidence in social settings. If you want to stand out on the dance floor or become a competitive dancer, they will work with you to make your wishes to come true but you must be prepared to work hard. However, you won't feel it is hard work because you will be surprised how much progress you can make and how lovely it is to learn in a very friendly and professional environment.

For me, dancing has become an integral part of my life, a part of my fitness regime and a booster to my emotional well-being. If you want to be really good,

The lessons are not cheap - definitely an investment, though you have full control over how much you want to invest as the lessons you buy will never expire. Furthermore, the studio is a registered educational institution; therefore, part of the tuition is reimbursable by Revenue Canada at the time of filing personal income tax.
