History of Social Dance 

Social dance is a relatively new concept, but in practice, goes back centuries. Social dance is a category of dances that have a social function and context. Social dances are generally intended for participation rather than performance and can be led and followed with ease. They are often danced merely to socialize and for entertainment. This is what makes them so accessible to different pupils and audiences! There is no performance component, the only requirement is a to be comfortable and have fun.

Many social dances of European origin are partner dances, and in other places may be interpreted as circle dances or line dances. However, at Arthur Murray of Danbury, we will focus on learning the dances of today which correspond with the hottest new music and dance in popular culture. 

At Arthur Murray of Danbury, our instructors will teach you how to blend in, or stand out as a dancer at a public function; you will learn how to dance individually, or with a partner, and you will learn the most popular movements and dances. The goal of these lessons is to bring the student out of their comfort zone, while maintaining an air of fun and engagement with the music. These lessons are for anyone looking to be comfortable on a dance floor!
