Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Plano, Texas is a complete rip-off.
I began taking lessons there 2 months ago, only to find myself under high pressure selling techniques that use the emotion of dance to be closed by the staff and managers.
I have students that have told me that they have spent thier life saving on this.
I was under the impression that 3rd Party closing(where 2 reps from the company get you in a room by yourself) and attempt to close you was illegal in Texas.
I am not sure.
No the less, the studio have a $40 mark up on price per lesson over thier competitors and USE the "Arthur Murray" name to create the illusion that you are getting a high standard of dance teaching but there is no difference than up the road. I also know for a fact that Arthur Murray Dance Studios in Plano and Dallas hire staff with no experience neccessary to teach the art of dance. [continued below]....
In addition to this, a former employee has told me that he was threatened to be black balled and was insured that the owner of this studio would do all he took to make sure he didnt have a job in the dance world again after resigning.
I wish I would have never went in there cuz I lost more than money going there...I was rapped from my personal respect!
