The Arthur Murray Dance Center in Ashburn, Virginia, was established in 2007 by husband and wife team Gabriel and Leigh Gamboa. With more than 20 years of experience in the competitive dance arena, the Gamboas wanted to bring the exciting Arthur Murray experience to Loudoun County. Since opening their doors, they have seen hundreds of lives changed through dance.
Whether you are preparing for a special event or simply want a lively hobby, the Arthur Murray Dance Center can equip you with the dancing skills you need to feel comfortable on the dance floor.
An Enduring Legacy
It all began in 1912 when a man named Arthur Murray started to teach social – or “ballroom” – dance part-time in New York City. By day, Murry worked as a draftsman; at night, he instructed couples how to float across the dance floor. Despite this humble beginning, the popularity of Murray’s dance lessons was so tremendous that he would one day launch what would become the largest dance teaching organization in the world. Arthur Murray Dance Centers are now located in hundreds of locations on six continents.
As someone who was self-conscious as a child due to his tall, gangly appearance, Arthur Murray can now be credited with teaching literally millions of people around the globe how to improve their lives – and self-esteem – by learning how to dance.
With over 5,000 square feet of space to let loose and waltz the night away, our studio features three separate ballrooms to meet all of your dancing needs. We offer on-site dance instruction and incredibly fun dance parties that allow our students gain confidence in a welcoming, judgement-free environment. Both couples and singles are invited to kick up their heels and have a ball – literally!
