Arthur Murray Coquitlam BLOG

Especially with the current virus outbreak situation we are connecting more and more with our students online.

Our BLOG articles will be added as we write them.  The purpose of our studio BLOG is for our management and staff to share some useful information for the dancing, motivation and sometimes just general entertainment of our dance community.   We certainly have some interesting people in our studio and all of us have so much we want to share with you!

Last weekend would have been Vancouver Dance-O-Rama and Christy writes our next BLOG post about our reaction to that...

The Highs and Lows of the Dance-O-Rama That Almost Was




Hopefully, we will be reopening again, in a limited capacity, in a few weeks.  In the meantime, the studio is certainly a different place as we continue to self-islolate.

"Necessity is the mother of invention", they say, and we've been doing a lot more online with our students.

Our next article is Brent's take on the new, albeit temporary, normal...
