The Arthur Murray Newton studio opened in October 2012. Boris Brevde, four-time Ukranian ballroom dance champion, and Kendrick Lau, a former student decided to open the studio together after talking about the dream for a long time. Brevde began dancing at 5 years old and continued throughout college and beyond in the Ukraine. In 1992 he moved to the United States and joined Arthur Murray as a teacher. Lau became a student several years ago and he and Brevde soon became good friends. When an opportunity for Brevde to open an Arthur Murray franchise came up, the two decided to work together and open a new studio.
The studio is already in the headlines. For more background information, read this article in Wicked Local:
