The 2017 Arthur Murray All Star Spotlight: Tyler Schiller
This is his first time advancing to this point and we explore how this upbeat New Student Specialist looks at the process so far, and his strategy for moving forward.
What is the AM All Star Competition?
The Arthur Murray All Stars, officially referred to as the George B. Theiss All Star Competition for the late president of the company, is a skills competition for every level of professional within each location around the world. The goal is to grow, develop, and reveal the professionals that demonstrate the best customer service, communication, problem solving, critical thinking, and teamwork skills. The competition begins in each studio and winners advance to small region, or District, competitions. From there the District winners advance to the large region, or Area, competition. Finally, the Area winners advance to the World Championships in Las Vegas where each Area team tests and one team is pronounced the winner.
More importantly, the real winners are the students of the Arthur Murray Dance Studios as these tests, and accompanying training, help to deliver better communication, teamwork, problem solving, and confidence from every member of the staff.

AML: How do you think The All-Star Competition helps the AM Industry?
TS: It gives a look into some different problem solving and communication skills to use to help all of the company push to the top as individuals and studios, to, in turn, make our industry remain #1.
AML: What would be your nightmare All-Star round?
TS: Having a complete mental block, forgetting how to service, down to the names of the people in testing scenario.
AML: How will you train for the next round?
