"For everyone who spent that last season planning on learning to dance 'someday,' we have a great idea -- make 'someday' now. Changing habits is hard, and staying motivated to keep new habits is harder. We know from experience that people who start a ballroom dance program stick with it longer than a rigorous schedule of exercise at the gym," said John Kimmins, President of Arthur Murray International. "It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why. And if you start in January, by the next DWTS season, you'll be ready to dance too!"

For many fans, making good on a promise to learn how to ballroom dance before the next season of Dancing with the Stars is a New Year's resolution that is realistic. It also combines a few New Year's resolutions into one. Learning to dance takes care of that promise to take better care of your health with a regular exercise program. Combine ballroom dancing with the Core Rhythms exercise program created by two Latin ballroom dance champions now offered at Arthur Murray Dance Studios across the country, and you'll be in great shape for 2009.

And if you've promised yourself to be more social, meet more new people and get out more, getting involved with dance lessons will take care of that resolution too. Many Arthur Murray Dance Studios are involved in charitable events, which add yet another component to learning to dance -- giving back to the community.
