Christmas Food and Toy Drive -
Each year during the Christmas season Arthur Murray Coquitlam donates hundreds of pounds of food and additional gifts to the Food Bank at SHARE Services Society. Our students are so generous with the bags and boxes of food and toys that they bring and the studio adds to the pile, too. Our Christmas 2014 total was 690 pounds (our largest so far was in 2012 with 1002 pounds)!
Thanks to everyone for your generosity to make that happen.

Community Outreach - the "Seniors Tour"
Several times throughout the year Coquitlam Arthur Murray organizes a group of students who show great generosity with their time in doing dance performances and hosting dances for some the Seniors Centres and Care Homes around the Tri-Cities area (and beyond). Minus the roadies and official tour bus we have been able to provide some great musical diversion for those who want to come out and enjoy a lively performance.
