What's Shakin' at Arthur Murray Coquitlam:

Updated June 3, 2023

Coming up soon will be Bobby G in the studio – Wednesday and Thursday, June 7 and 8.  There are still a few coaching lesson appointments available and 2 Salsa workshops – an intermediate one on Wednesday evening at 8:30 and an advanced one on Thursday evening at 7:30.  Make sure to ask your teachers, or one of the Barbaras, about more details and which of the workshops would be appropriate for you. 

Spring FESTIVAL 2023 is on!  6 weeks of fun theme parties and dancing.   Check the Upcoming Events page for a comprehensive list of dates for that. 

We have already had a couple of the theme parties so far.  Photos are online on the Arthur Murray Coquitlam Photo Albums Page.  The next theme party is Geek Out for our science fiction enthusiasts in the studio, so get your thinking cap on for your costume ideas for that.

Make sure you know the FESTIVAL Group Class schedule – there are more groups to come.   This time we will be learning some fun moves in Peabody 🙂

Keep checking for more updates for the FESTIVAL events…



The past FESTIVAL theme parties have lots of photos to check out!

We had a Cinco de Mayo party on Friday, May 05 at 9:00pm.   It was a fun night of dancing, with a bit of Latin focus.  Photos online on the Arthur Murray Coquitlam photo albums page.

Showcase 2023 at the Marriott Pinnacle in beautiful downtown Vancouver was held on April 29, 2023 with our district studios in attendance.  A fun Showcase day with the Red Carpet theme for the evening gala Dinner Dance.  Keep checking the photos as they come available on the studio Photo Albums page. 

We proudly wore our Irish green for St Patrick’s day on Friday, March 17 for a fun theme party that night starting at 9:00pm.  Check out the photos on the photo albums page. 

Ballroom Blitz was held on Saturday, March 4.  Ballroom Blitz is a fun, reserved seat, ticketed, in-studio event.   Photos have been posted online and many more in the studio!

Staff from Arthur Murray Studios for the Lower Mainland participated in the Fan Expo trade show in Vancouver over the long weekend (February 18 to 20).   What a fun trade show.

We are so proud of our team that went to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on January 18 – 22 this year for Beach-O-Rama!   We heard it was super well attended, and ended up being the most entries that an Arthur Murray event has ever held, so happy for everyone involved and the success there.

We also had  a “Cabo in Coquitlam Party that week (on Friday, January 13 at 9:00pm). 

The Guest Party wass on January 25, a Wednesday evening event starting at 7:00pm.  Lots of guests, so, thank you, everyone!

The Hangover Party was a fun way to start the year – Friday, January 6, where we utilized a bit of dance therapy to help us in our recovery from the Christmas party season. 🙂

FESTIVAL for fall2022/winter2023 has wrapped up!  Check out the photos from the theme parties and the Dinner Dance.  What a creative bunch we have!

Christmas Party 2022 was an absolute hoot 😉  It’s great to be back to the potluck-dance-party-santa-photo madness that we love. Check out the photos online.

Our donation to the Share Food Bank for the Tri-Cities has been taken in and we donated 519 pounds of food and a few hundred dollars for them to buy more 🙂  Thank you, everyone, who participated by bringing in some food and other donations for them.
