Arthur Murray Dance Studios of Central New Jersey

Need Something to Do on Friday Night? How About Free Ballroom Dance Lessons

Arthur Murray Dance Studios of Central New Jersey


Complimentary, on the house, free of charge. You read that correctly. Arthur Murray of Green Brook is offering free beginner group classes to the public for select days in April!

But why the free lessons? Seems suspicious. Is it really free?

Yes! No strings attached.To celebrate the coming warm weather, we’re Spring-ing into dance! Central New Jersey is inviting the surrounding community to dance with Arthur Murray at an open house on April 20th (also free). Up until then, Green Brook is offering free classes to anyone with an inkling to learn, so that new students have some steps under their belt and take full advantage of the live salsa band that will be in the studio on the 20th, alongside a professional DJ.

Not only that, but the open house will also feature performances by dance professionals, door prizes for students and guests, and grand prize raffle drawing for all the students who bring guests — the more guest you bring the more chances you have to win.

What’s all the hullabaloo for? The Green Brook location is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and what better way to celebrate than to invite new friends to a dance party? This open house is the third of a series of open houses thrown by Central New Jersey to show appreciation for the wonderful communities that have been home to our studios for many years and share the love of dance with those who have not discovered it yet.

Ok, so you’ve decided to take a leap of faith and show up to your first ballroom dance lesson (yes, the free one).

What you’ll need:

An Open Mind

Mistakes will be made, that’s nothing special. You’re not the only one that’s going to feel silly when your body isn’t doing what your brain tells it. Rest assured, it gets better with a little time and patience. The hardest part is showing up!

Shoes without rubber soles and clothes you feel comfortable and confident in.

Show your style in your attire and your moves.

Move those feet and ask questions!

There are teachers there to answer any questions you may have — and most likely somebody else is wondering the same thing. A new step may feel awkward to you at first, but you’ll be in a safe space surrounded by other beginners who are in the same boat.

Be patient — with yourself and others.

Shake it off, and don’t be afraid to laugh.

Most importantly, have fun! It’s just dancing, after all.

Dates of the free lessons: April 14th at 12:30 pm, April 17th at 8:15 pm, April 19th at 7:30 pm, and April 20th at 7:30 pm, before the general dancing and festivities kick into full swing.

Roxanne & Ben were invaluable in helping prep us for our wedding. What a fun and rewarding crash course in the art of the box step and twirl.
Ben and Roxanne are both such fun, skilled instructors! My fiancé and I had a four lesson “crash course” with them during which they helped us get ready for the first dance at our wedding. We haven’t had our wedding yet, but we feel so much more confident for the big day after learning the dance they choreographed for our song! We can’t wait to refine it and have a blast.

This place is really sweet. The instructors are all very knowledgeable, kind, and fun! You can tell they really put effort into building a sense of community and non judgement. A refreshing experience to be a part of the little Arthur Murray family for a while while I lived in this part of town. Highly recommend for anyone like me that doesn’t have any experience and wants to give it a go in a welcoming place with folks of all skill levels 👍.

Had our dance lessons here for our wedding. I went in not being able to keep a beat and with no dance knowledge. After just 2 months of classes I felt confident during mine and my wife’s first dance. We worked closest with Ben and he was excellent. Every time we got to work with Bob and Roxanne their enthusiasm rubbed off on us and we had a great time.

Arthur Murray/ An unforgettable Memory, Sooseon Kim “Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance.” Hi. This is Susan Kim. I’m from Seoul, Korea. I want to share a very special experience I had during last summer. I was so lucky to join the ballroom dance classes for 2 weeks at Arthur Murray (Franchised Dance Centers), located in Highland Park, NJ After the first free lesson and consultation with the instructor, Ben, I instantly decided to register Arthur Murray and spend my time & energy on Ballroom dancing. Ben recommended me to choose ‘Starter Program Package’. At that time, I only had two weeks left before going back to Korea. He explained to me, “It would be great to experience as many as possible in various ways. Starter Program consists of Individual Lesson, Group Lesson and Practice Session. How was it? It was an absolutely awesome experience. All the teachers and staff were kind, friendly and gorgeous. Also, the atmosphere of the studio was very comfortable and convenient for the sake of students. Needless to say, Ben was a very gentle, professional and confident teacher. I instantly figured out how extremely well-qualified he was. I was amazed by not only his elaborate teaching skills but also his endless patience with his students.^^ Actually, I never expected that there was a decent dance studio near my place, New Brunswick. I only searched several dance centers in Manhattan and gave up easily due to an inconvenient location. That’s why I was so excited to find out Arthur Murray in Highland Park. “Exposure & Repetition” these two key words that Ben emphasized to me every time. Those two words are still kept in my mind.

We have loved our classes at Arthur Murray! My husband and I have always wanted to be able to dance at weddings and now we can and do! We enjoyed our beginners program so much that we signed up for the next level as a 30th anniversary present to ourselves. The teachers are all wonderful and so are our fellow students. Highly recommend!
