Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Palm Coast hosted its first-ever Motown Night in honor of the Motown Records label on Thursday, May 18, at the Italian American Social Club.
The event included an Italian dinner, videos of the students and staff, an award ceremony for the younger dancers, Motown facts and lots of dancing.
Arthur Murray Dance Studio opened in May 2016. It teaches ballroom dancing to kids and adults of all ages, plus social and wedding dancing. The studio teaches dance styles such as the cha-cha, the foxtrot, the salsa, the tango, the Viennese waltz and many more.
The Italian American Social Club is a nonprofit organization for Americans of Italian descent. It hosts banquets, weddings, birthday parties and anniversaries. The club celebrated its 48th anniversary in November 2022.
“The music and dancing was great,” Karen Gagliano, banquet sales coordinator at the club said, “You can tell how much they care about their students by the way they showcase them.”
This is the second event Arthur Murray has hosted at the social club.
