Dariusz adapted the lessons to my specific goal and needs, from the very beginning. I had a first introductory salsa lesson and what I need is to learn in a very short time, I was able to understand what to focus on and work on so that the lessons could be as efficient as possible thanks to his observation and his guidance.

Definitely recommended...!!! I have taken 6 beginner salsa classes so far and I can do basics pretty well. Feels great 😄I would definitely continue taking more classes. Classes are every Thursday 7-8pm. The classes are at pace that most people can follow with lots of practice and encouragement from instructor. Arati is a great instructor, very keen on every detail of gesture, timing of movement etc.... People who are in this class are very friendly and easy to dance with. I would definitely recommend anyone to join her class and it's affordable :)

Olga was awesome to work with - my husband and I wanted to get some lessons for our first dance at our wedding and we're SO happy we found her. She knew exactly what style to do once she heard our song, and choreographed the whole thing for us from start to finish. Within the first lesson, she knew exactly what she wanted to teach us and have us do. And to top it off, she was so fun to work with! I think she probably had us laughing more times than not throughout our lessons - we highly recommend her!!!!

Irina is a spectacular teacher who took us from bumbling beginners to competent salsa dancers in a relatively short amount of time. She has an amazing ability to take seemingly complex steps and make them easy to understand and learn, no matter your ability or experience level. She’s also friendly and fun to work with, flexible and generous with her time, which was great for me and my fiancée who work late and unpredictable schedules. She helped us choreograph a great dance for our upcoming wedding, and taught us the fundamentals that will keep us dancing salsa regularly for years to come. I cannot recommend Irina highly enough!

I recently decided to take dance lessons for the first time. I was a bit nervous, as I'm a terrible dancer, however,  I wanted to at least try it once. My first lesson with Tonisha turned out to be so much fun, and I felt very comfortable! Tonisha has an amazing talent and is knowledgeable about dance, assesses your level quicky, and begins to teach you how to move so that you see improvement with your first lesson! The first night, she choreographed a dance routine that I was able to learn that night!  She has given me inspiration and confidence that I can actually do this! I would recommend  Tonisha to anyone who is trying for the first time or who is experienced, but wants to take it to the next level! ~ D

My Dance lessons with Jes were some of the best I've ever had. She got me off my feet and showed me what West Coast Swing was all about. She was always, always professional, on time, and for a great price too. I now think of her as a good friend and I'm always excited when she comes to Texas.

Just had my first session with Paulina this afternoon and can't wait for our next session! She was super patient with me as I am a total beginner in dance! As the session went on, I also found out that she is a personal trainer! We decided that it would be a great idea to combine both so I can learn the flow of my body motion from dancing and also build up muscles from training! I am glad that I took the first step in being active and also found someone like Paulina to get me into shape!

I didn't know what to expect when I signed up for Miki's adult hip hop class- and I was pleasantly surprised! So much fun from the beginning, including a warm up, learning new moves every week and working on a choreography piece! Miki is patient with beginners and also knows how to make the class challenging for more advanced students. A great teacher and you don't realize how much of a work out you are getting as it is simply fun to move Hip Hop style! Highly recommend her classes.

Andrianna was our dance instructor for salsa lessons and the hustle. She is a very patient person, especially when your husband had two left feet. When we decided to choreograph a dance for our wedding, she easily transitioned us into swing with a bit of hustle in the middle. It's great taking classes with her as she knows when to step in and take the lead, pretty much to quell any arguments. And her choreography was so fun! Resort said it was the best dance they'd seen! She was even there to rehearse with us. I cannot recommend her enough! Amazing ...

I had a short period of lessons from Eno, he was one of the best ballroom dance instructors I ever had. Picked up my weak points quickly and spent so much time to correct and answered all my endless questions till I was fully satisfied; hence, I didn't hesitate to ask anything I wondered and could talk openly, which is very important to build a good dancing relationship. By looking at his way to dance and teach, I thought he had danced almost 10 years but actually it was much less surprisingly. He must be so talented. I wish he were in my town, would highly recommend to all levels of dancers!!

Jiyon is an amazing instructor and a lovely person. I am a beginner who was always interested in ballet. I took some group classes before but I wasn't getting much. I was too beginner and needed more focused attention and extra help. When I started to take private lessons with Jiyon, she was very helpful in explaining very basics of ballet as well as body parts and their functions so I can pose properly. I am liking ballet more than ever and greatly enjoying learning from her. She challenges me each class and I can feel and see that I am improving. I am so thankful for her! I recommend her to people at all levels. She is great!

    I met Arturo at Swing 46 when I was celebrating a friend's 40th birthday. Arturo taught the beginner dance lesson and was very concise with his instructions and ability to make the patrons comfortable both with the lesson and with their own abilties. I have since taken lessons with Arturo and he is very patient with his teaching and guidance. He is a good lead without being overbearing and my experience when dancing with him is always positive.

      I've been around a few NYC dance studios (BDC, Alvin Aileys, etc.) and private instructors so I feel confident in the following assessment of Elisa. So far I've attended a few private ballet dance lessons with Elisa since this spring and found her style both enjoyable in terms of keeping the mood and feeling positive, while still providing solid technical and engaging feedback that would improve my dancing and general performance. I've already learned so much technical terms and improved my overall body tone and posture. Elisa is one of the most patient, well-trained, highly skilled, reliable, and experienced ballet instructor in the NYC Area. Not only does she offer extremely competitive rates, but she is also very accommodating and her schedule is fairly open and flexible. As aforementioned, I've taken privates and group classes elsewhere, but they pale in comparison to Elisa. Elisa carries a commendable etiquette and a soothing personality; she doesn't rush or blaze through the techniques with frustration and arrogance as others have with me. So all in all, I recommend seeing Elisa whether you are an absolute beginner, like me, or a professional dancer. Keep up the good work Elisa! Best, SC.

        "eleveN toes" is figuratively befitting Jorge as a salsa instructor. He has extra patience, extra attention to details and extra motivation. I left my lesson feeling accomplished and excited for my next session.

          I took tap lessons with Avi. She’s amazing! I was pretty much a beginner to tap, having only taken random classes at a lot of the more famous studios around NYC. It wasn’t until I had lessons with her that I was really able to nail down all my problem areas & get a sense of what I needed to work on to advance even further. She’s very detailed oriented & has a genuine interest in seeing you improve. She's different from other private teachers because Avi caters the lesson around your individual needs. I also work a lot so it's really great that she's willing to at work around your schedule. Plus she’s a really sweet person too. I ABSOLUTELY recommend taking lessons with her!
