The Arthur Murray Basic Program assists in the development of the most important ballroom dance moves that you can use immediately on the dance floor. Emphasis is placed on three important elements of dancing; (1) foot position (2) rhythm and timing (3) leading or following with enough variety to keep your learning experience interesting.
The Arthur Murray Associate Bronze Program is the most popular ballroom dance program Arthur Murray has to offer.  It is perfect for those individuals wanting to get on the dance floor quickly and confidently.  This program helps the basic dancer develop more confident movement around the dance floor while expanding one's ballroom dancing knowledge, technique and footwork.  Associate Bronze dancers also begin to develop an understanding of a dance's characteristics and begin to more effectively use styling in their dancing.
The Arthur Murray Full Bronze dance program is the most complete social ballroom dance program taught by the Arthur Murray Dance Studios. It's designed to develop appropriate timing and techniques in all the student's favorite social dances. The enhanced styling this program offers makes one look and feel more comfortable on the dance floor and strengthens both leading and following regardless of one's partner, the music being played or the type of dance floor. Bronze dancers have all the confidence anyone would need on the floor because they have reached the most entertaining level of ballroom dancing. Dancing techniques at this level will be yours to keep for the rest of your dancing adventure.
The Arthur Murray Silver Program is the beginning of the professional ballroom dance standard where the dancer begins to embrace the refinements of styling and the precision of technique. More elaborate movements ensure the Silver dancer will stand out on any dance floor. Continuity of movement enables a couple to glide across the dance floor with natural fluid directional changes and seamless transition. Style, technique, balance and control take on an entirely new meaning for the Silver dancer. 
The Arthur Murray Gold Program is the ideal for the dancer interested in ballroom dance performances, exhibitions and competitions. The intricate patterns learned at the gold level are generally only to be used when both partners are proficient. Choreography, styling, technique and showmanship become necessities at this level. This material is generally not used on a crowded dance floor due to the flowing patterns and expansive shaping. There is a lot of work involved in this program, but this is where one becomes truly an outstanding dancer, able to excel in any dance.
