At Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Castle Hill, instructor Matthew Akers will be directing classes right through the holiday period.

“We’re primarily focused on social ballroom dancing and Latin dancing but we talk to our students about what they want from their lessons,” he said.

“We have students from 18 years old to 87, and everything in between.

“Couples get to come and learn how to dance so they can go out; single blokes might want to learn to dance so they’re more confident in a social environment where other people are dancing, it’s really, really focused on the individual.”

The studio is a franchise of the Arthur Murray brand, which celebrated its 100th anniversary this year.

If ballroom or Latin dancing aren’t your thing, there are plenty of other options around for other styles.
