Valentine’s Day is Around the Corner!!

CORAL GABLES, FL – Feb 10, 2012: What did you receive last Valentine’s Day? Has it made you happier, stronger or healthier? If you’re like many people, it’s just sitting there or you’ve thrown it out. Why not do something that will really make you happier, stronger and healthier?

Learn to dance! And men, remember, the easiest way to win an argument is to take her in your arms! Nothing could be sexier than learning to move together on the dance floor. Plus there are health, happiness and “brownie points” to be had!

This year is an especially good year to step up your Valentine’s Day gifting. 2012 marks 100 years since a shy young man named Arthur Murray stepped onto the dance floor and into the history of American pop culture. Known best for the iconic Arthur Murray Dance Studios, we are all still dancing and teaching couples of all ages the art of dancing, romancing and moving to your favorite songs. Plus, dancing with the one you love? Could it get any better than that? At Arthur Murray Dance Studios ( around the world, dance experts know that a great night of romance begins on the dance floor.

“Taking your partner in your arms and moving to the music is something that you can’t put in a box or order online,” says Thomas Murdock, Vice President of Marketing and Promotions for Arthur Murray International. “A Valentine’s dance is a warm and loving way for couples to honor the romance of their relationship, whether they’ve been together for months, years, or decades,” he adds.

Experiencing the joy of movement together during an evening devoted to each other demonstrates a level of caring that is missing from many couples’ fast‐paced lives today. It’s a time when cell phones, iPads and e‐readers are out of sight. You can’t text, post on Facebook or Skype while you are on the dance floor ‐‐ although you could get someone to do it for you ‐ and wouldn’t that be awesome to show your family, friends and coworkers! It’s a wonderful place to rediscover each other, and just in time for Valentine’s Day.

For a memorable evening this Valentine’s Day, take your date to the local Arthur Murray Dance Studio. We guarantee you’ll have a fun evening together. At Arthur Murray Dance Studios you’ll find a comfortable atmosphere, professional instructors who are experienced in teaching couples, dance floors with lots of room to move, state‐of‐the‐art sound systems, soft lighting and what could be better – your partner, with a smile, in your arms?
