What Is It? 

A 6 Week activity competition between Arthur Murray schools of similar size all around the world.

Think of this like: 

Spirit Week in High School meets Sweeps week on network television

What Happens? 

The Festival is built around 6 weeks of costume parties built around a central theme.  There are games, special promotions, and prizes every week.

Think of this like:

The “Best Of” and “Most Likely” awards that you won in school combined with holiday shopping on Black Friday.

Why Do It? 

Arthur Murray is a supportive community of dance students and professionals.  Learning to dance is easier when the environment is fun.  Nothing lightens up the mood, and brings the student body closer together, than a costume party.

Think of this Like:

Going to summer camp.  You discover a new network of friends, new things about your current friends, and the change of scenery gives you a new perspective on things.
