What's Shakin' at Arthur Murray Coquitlam:
In-person group classes are back!! November 7, 2020 to February 5, 2021 has additional restrictions for BC (see the studio covid-19 updates page) and the recommendations for low-intensity group class participation have been added, too. We are now hosting the in-person group classes following those recommendations.
Barbara Lynn is hosting a series of Dance Fitness classes on Saturday mornings, via Zoom (for now).
Medal Ball (postponed from November 28, 2020) will be on February 13!! It will also be a new, inventive, covid-prevention-friendly in-person event (similar to the Spotlight Ball held last summer). February 13 is the day after Chinese New Year and the day before Valentines Day so we will be celebrating everyone's dance study achievements in that spirit. There is guaranteed to be lots of pink, red and white around 🙂
Our Fall/Winter Festival was fun! We did a trial period of the Dance Fitness hosted by Barbara Lynn (which we have added as an option for everyone, after) The Cumbia Workshop series hosted by Juan de Dios and Cari-Jo Garcia from San Jose, California was great, too, with several classes of review included, as well. For everyone who fully joined by Thursday, December 10, there were swag items included, too!
The Friday Night Zoom Party took a different turn on Halloween-eve on Friday, October 30. Congratulations to our draw winners: Kate O., Sharon R., Issah and our grand prize winner, Regina. 🙂 We also have photos added to the photo albums page from our whole Hallowee...eeek!
Congratulations, everyone, on your great performances at the Spotlight Ball! It was redesigned into an event that was very different than usual but just as fun. Check the photo album for some great photos 🙂
Our Ladies' Formation (All that Jazz) and the Flash Mob video link has been added to the VLOG page.
Summer Festival was a hoot! We've been seeing the t-shirts going to good use as people come in the studio (looking quite sharp, we might add!).
We have an Arthur Murray Coquitlam Studio BLOG with articles posted as we write them, keep an eye on the "latest news" section below or on the homepage. We will also post blog post updates on our Facebook page.
We are continuing our larger gatherings virtually and we have some fun things planned for everyone during this time. We are continuing to try new things with this, so we appreciate your feedback!
In order to participate virtually you will need to have access to Zoom, a video conferencing software. It's free to download and use for personal use.
To get Zoom for your PC computer download the first option on: https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting
For Zoom on your tablet or phone go to: https://zoom.us/support/download
You don't need to "sign up" on Zoom to simply attend a scheduled meeting time, just click on "join meeting" and put in the access code (we will send it to you) when the time comes.
Stay tuned to receive your access codes for scheduled group class and party times as they come 🙂

Etiquette of the Social Dances:
Dancing at social events is about more than just the dancing itself, it's about being sociable, too. There are lots of things we can be doing to increase the enjoyment of the events that we attend and make us more popular as a dance partner to others. Learn about the "tricks of the trade" on our Social Dance Etiquette page.
