Arthur Murray Dance Studios

We are looking for a Salsa dance classes to take in April. A few days ago we got a mail ad from Arthur Murray Dance Studios. So, we visited them. It seems that they'd been around for a long time. They have the same curriculum across all their studios. They sell instruction in packages, like 6 private + 6 group + 6 practice sessions, and charge a decent amount of money. It's definitely more expensive than group classes elsewhere, but cheaper than private lessons. We liked instructors, they are all young and dance well. However, the setup wasn't very convinient on our complementary trial class: we were in the room with many people, and the music was anything but salsa :) It's hard to practice this dance if the beat is different. I was left with mixed feelings. Probably, we'll pass this for now.
