Arthur Murray as a Ballroom Dance Teacher

Arthur Murray began teaching dance lessons in 1912. By 1919, he was teaching classes in his spare time. He was very involved in the American social dance scene, which benefitted him as a dance teacher, entrepreneur, and businessman. Arthur Murray had a creative way of using print advertising and a unique way of marketing his lessons for that time. He utilized direct mail in a cutting-edge way by offering dance lessons via mail “one step at a time.” This allowed students to learn dances at their own pace from the comfort of their homes. Think of the early days of virtual learning. Ha!
