Practice Makes Perfect!

Many of you may know that age old cliché , ―practice makes perfect‖. This is so true for dancing! At any given time, you can probably spot some of our students practic-ing their skills in the ballroom. However, we know that sometimes being stuck at work or other circumstances can prohibit you from coming in all the time… So what do you do? It’s easier than you think! Here are a few easy tips to help improve your dancing.

Mother always said ―stand up straight!‖ She was right. Whenever you walk or even sit, keep your spine straight! This will, not only improve your posture, but it will help you out in the long run to avoid unnecessary aches and pains.

Don’t get ahead of yourself! Whenever we walk, we want to keep the head over hour feet. Don’t let your head slack behind, forcing your pelvis forward— not useful or pretty! Also, you don’t want to lead with your head! When you dance, you want to keep your head right over your feet so you can keep your balance, no matter how large your step may be.

Aren’t those little ideas easy to do? You don’t need a big floor to work on all that. However, when you can make it into the studio, we are always glad to see you prac-ticing those techniques. We’ll see you there!


Both my wife and I are extremely happy learning ballroom dancing at Crows Nest Arthur Murray Studio. We have found the dancing instructors to be professional, knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. We are more than happy to continue enjoying our dancing experience and social activities with all the other students. We feel like part of a large joyous dancing family.John & Marilynread more

We were interested in learning Tango for our daughter's wedding last year, but here we are in our second year at AM, Crows Nest - dancing has now become our passion, due in large part, to the excellence of teaching and supportive atmosphere of this studio! The journey is long and I so envy the folks who have started years ago to achieve the beauty and grace of ballroom and the seduction of Latin dancing. We are determined to continue !!!read more

We started dancing in 2009 for our wedding - and had so much fun learning that we kept it up. They have incredible flexibility to do as much as you want, on your schedule, and consist of staff that appreciate busy working (and family!) lives --- while encouraging you to always improve yourselves! As a couple learning they have accommodated both our learning styles very well.read more

I walked through the doors at Arthur Murray Crows Nest over 10 years ago having never danced a day in my life… I was looking for something fun to do outside of work and I’ve been there ever since!! There are local and overseas competitions, social nights and lots of glamorous events throughout the year to keep you busy. It’s fun, challenging, incredibly rewarding and you have an absolute blast along the way!!read more

I have loved dance all of my life but the Arthur Murray Crows Nest experience has taken my love and learning to another level. I have been dancing here for 14 years and will continue until my body gives up. My lessons are so much fun, challenging in a good way and a great form of exercise. Add to that the social side, great people, parties, outings, local and overseas competitions and you have the ultimate hobby.read more
