GREENWICH, Conn., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting it's 4th joyous year on Lewis Street in Greenwich, Connecticut, the owner of the Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom, Christine Georgopulo, proudly states that, "For over 100 years and 100 trillion steps, Arthur Murray has changed lives and taught the world to dance," said Georgopulo, "we have taught Kings, Presidents, Hollywood stars, Corporate America via Team Building thru Ballroom and Latin Dance; we specialize in first wedding dances, creating a social atmosphere to learn for singles, couples and children; dance is a chance to reconnect on date night, make new friends, get a fantastic workout, learn a lifelong skill, reinvent yourself and/or just have fun; the benefits of dance are long and far reaching."
2014 is all about guilt-free consumption, health and wellness, what you do vs. what you have, self sustaining cars - homes - technology - activities, community, and the elegance of simplicity.
Greenwich is home to dozens and dozens of fundraisers each year, mostly black tie and always with great music; having the ability to dance and enjoy the evening to the fullest is an art.
Arthur Murray International has been at the forefront of health, wellness, the heart-mind-body-soul connection, and the art of lead and follow in social dancing for the last century.
"There is nothing more elegant than two people who can glide across the floor together, making the most of every note and setting the tone for whatever event they attend," says Georgopulo, "Latin and Ballroom dancing is 2014's status symbol because it exemplifies being physically fit, coming together, being poised, having perfect posture, timing, confidence and it allows you to experience and exhibit sheer joy."
When asked if Ballroom and Latin dancing is outdated, Georgopulo emphatically replied, "Far from it! Every week we enjoy it on Dancing with Stars, Salsa is the #1 dance in the world and with few exceptions, all of today's music can be danced to with a Quickstep, Rumba, Cha-Cha, Foxtrot, Waltz, Salsa, Single/Triple Swing, Bolero, Hustle, Foxie; the list goes on - there are 44 partner dances and we teach them all."
It looks like elegance and sophistication are making a comeback - as it should be.
