Arthur Murray Is Back To Ballroom Dancing In San Francisco
Of all the ballroom dances that are taught at Arthur Murray, there is one dance that is off the books, informal, and wildly popular at the new Arthur Murray San Francisco these days...
A Victory Dance.
After months of delay due to permitting, a hearing with the planning commission, and a short stint teaching out of a former daycare - 321 Divisadero Street is now, officially and legally, the home of Arthur Murray San Francisco.
Arthur Murray in San Francisco
Up until 2005, there had always been an Arthur Murray school in San Francisco. Located on 1532 Taraval Street, that school closed, unfortunately, after the unfortunate passing of the studio owner, Karen Shelly.
For the past decade, TV shows like Dancing With The Stars have brought incredible attention to ballroom dancing and reinvigorated people of all ages to start taking lessons. Nevertheless, there was no Arthur Muray Dance Studio in one of the landmark cities in the world.
This all changed after years of "on-again-off-again" searching landed, owners, Chris and Daisey Lynam at the historic 321 Divisadero Street location in January 2015.
The video below will shed some light on that process.
