    I’m always surprised to see the number of positive reviews for Arthur Murray. Is their business model standard for the industry? I had a terrible experience with them. Their pricing model requires you to pay up front, then the instructors spend a significant portion of the time you already paid for pitching you to buy even more classes. It was so uncomfortable for everyone involved and in the couple months I attended I grew tired of putting on a polite face while the manager interrupted lessons to try to squeeze more money out of us. I’m talking in a 1 hour class, sometimes 15 and 30 minutes would be dedicated to trying to get us to buy more. It was pretty clear that progress was being intentionally impeded for the upsell. Also we kept losing instructors in the middle of trying to choreograph our wedding dance because they kept leaving to work elsewhere! We had 3 instructors over the course of a couple months. The instructors were good, but the turnover was pretty unbelievable.

      From what I understand fro other people who have gone to Arthur Murry, that is their standard practice.
