My name is Krisztina Hera and I have a confession to make: I’m a dance addict! I was 3 years old when my parents took me to my very first dance class and somehow I knew right away that this is what I want to do my whole life. I feel fortunate and blessed because I was able to fulfil this dream of mine. I graduated from the Talentum International Art School as a professional dancer and later received my Bachelor of Fine Art Degree from the Hungarian Dance Academy as a professional dance instructor. I also worked as a choreographer for the Hungarian National Television for a year and toured around the world performing with many different dance ensembles. In 1998 I had the opportunity to travel to the US where I happened to meet my now husband and father of my children.
My husband lived in Coral Gables, Florida and that’s how I came upon the local Arthur Murray studio there. I was lucky to be hired there as a dance instructor and a few years later became the manager of the school. I loved working at the Coral Gables studio where I not only learned everything about the American Ballroom dancing, but I also had the opportunity to compete professionally all over the United States and Puerto Rico as well as in Costa Rica. Beside my professional competitive career I also got to compete in the Pro/Am category with my students which I truly loved and enjoyed! In 2015 we moved our family back to my hometown Budapest where I was able to fulfil my long term goal of opening Arthur Murray Budapest.
One of the many things I love about Arthur Murray is how we can truly change peoples’ lives through dancing! And there’s no better feeling than to see my students faces after each lesson; the joy and happiness I’m able to give them through dancing is priceless. My dream is to introduce Budapest to the Arthur Murray Lifestyle, an experience you cannot get anywhere else!
