Arthur Murray Taught Me Dancin' In A Hurry

An Arthur Murray dance studio in Glendale, Ca. 2012. The first one was opened in 1921, surviving and teaching more dance crazes than I can name.

The novelty song "Arthur Murray Taught Me Dancin' In A Hurry" (by Victor Schertzinger and Johnny Mercer) was performed by Betty Hutton in the 1942 film "The Fleet's In"
