The Cruise Web’s Managers Cut a Rug
On Saturday, March 3rd, The Cruise Web’s management team swung over to Arthur Murray Studios in Columbia, MD for an exclusive Managers’ Ballroom Dance group lesson and practice party. The afternoon lesson was led by three instructors and included a special in-studio break with sandwiches, drinks and snacks.
In addition to teaching some new dance moves, the lesson provided a practical metaphor for working with our clients. “It is not enough to take the right steps – you have to also take those steps in harmony with the client,” stated The Cruise Web’s President and founder, Frans Hansen. “Fast steps, slow steps, big steps, small steps, bouncy steps and smooth steps – whatever it is, we and our clients need to step together and in harmony!”
Mike Harris, one of the Sale Managers participating in the lesson, summed it up this way: “There are few things more humbling in life than a dance lesson. Ballroom dancing is a great lesson for someone who tends to overlook details, as I do. Like a golf swing, there are seemingly hundreds of small things that can make a big difference. Overall, it was lots of fun! My wife was lucky to escape without significant injury to her feet, and I was lucky to take home some much needed dance moves.”
