Learn to Swing

Enjoy the lively rhythm of Swing at your Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Dayton. The Lindy picked up where the Charleston left off. It had "swing-outs," "break-aways" and "shine steps." With the birth of Swing music in the mid 1930s, the Lindy climbed the social ladder. The dance craze swept the nation, and depending on where you lived, it was known as the Jitterbug, the Lindy or the Swing.

Learn to Salsa

Salsa is the Spanish word for "sauce," denoting a spicy or hot flavor. As a dance, it can be danced to a variety of rhythms. There is the "L.A." or "On-1 Style" breaking on the 1 beat. And the "New York" or "On-2 Style" which breaks on the 2 and 6 beats of the music. Generally, salsa music encompasses many Afro-Latin rhythms driven by the clave (two wooden sticks struck together). Many of the Salsa patterns are closely related to those of the Mambo.

Learn to Merengue

The exciting rhythms of the Merengue inspire dancers all over the world to move to the intoxicating beat. There are two schools of thought as to how this captivating dance began. One says it started as a peasant dance in the Dominican Republic by African slaves. The dragging of one leg relieved chafing of leg irons. Another says a returning war hero, a General Maringie, danced, dragging an injured leg. However it began, the Merengue is an exciting Latin dance that is fun.
