When we came to AM, we weren’t looking for more “together time”. We already ran a business together, played together, enjoyed each other’s company immensely. But somehow, AM helped us connect in a way that’s made us closer, happier, and even more intimate. Who knew the Foxtrot could do that?
“I have taken dance lessons at the Arthur Murray studio in Coquitlam for over three years. I started as a complete novice and have enjoyed every minute of my learning. The staff at the studio are phenomenal; wonderful people who love to dance and pass on their expertise to their students. The owners, Barbara and Brent have made their studio a welcome and fun place for everyone, novice or advanced. If you have the desire to dance, as a couple or individual, take that first step and you will never want to quit dancing. It will change your life.”
The team at Arthur Murray Coquitlam/Tri-Cities is awesome. I feel welcomed and recognized as an individual by professional yet friendly people who have my best interests at heart. There is no separation by status, more advanced students support new arrivals. This was of huge benefit to me because of my shyness. My wants and needs are critically analyzed on a continuing basis with adjustments made to enhance my learning curve. I can progress at my own rate. I do not feel pressured to reach goals or schedules however any personal incentive I have to move forward is supported and encouraged. I joined the studio to learn to dance. I stay with the studio because of the people and the environment.
“When Bonita Caunce asked her husband if he would take ballroom dancing lessons with her I, Brian Caunce, didn’t share my wife’s vision. When I pictured ballroom dancing, I thought of effeminate men, not strong ones. This scenario made me nervous and it took a great deal of convincing to get me to take that first lesson.
I love going dancing at Arthur Murray Dance Studios in Coquitlam for a number of reasons. Over the past seven years I have gone from a casual love to dance attitude to a serious goal-oriented program that takes priority over a great deal of my life.
Ballroom dancing is fun and challenging. The teachers are professional and a delight to work with . Brent and Barb the owners are genuine in their desire to see you grow and progress. This experience has been an absolute delight and we have made many new friends.
