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 Dariusz. So far I've attended a few private salsa and hip hop dance lessons with Dariusz since this spring and found his 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. Dariusz rises to the top as someone who puts more than the average amount of thought and preparation not only into his material, but how he delivers his message. His methods, presentation and information are all rock solid. His awareness of technical terminology, basic dynamics, combined with a desire for excellence means he creates lessons that are just challenging enough to help you create a solid foundation and to have fun in the meantime. Dariusz is one of the most well-trained, reliable, and most experienced salsa & hip hop instructors in the NYC Area. I recommend seeing him whether you are an absolute beginner, like me, or a competitive professional. Keep up the good work Dariusz! Best, SC.
My fiancée and I took dance lessons with Arati for our wedding. She choreographed a great dance to our song and made learning the steps really easy and fun. We'd highly recommend working with her to learn your first dance!
Although we had just a short time to prepare for our event, Olga taught us the basics of ballroom dancing in no time and we had a lot of fun. Yesterday at the ball we owned the dancefloor;-) We can totally recommend Olga!
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
Irina is an amazing instructor who was able to work well with a group! She was very communicative and flexible in our planning stages and brought lots of fun to our salsa class. I would absolutely recommend Irina (MAP 2 Rhythm) for your dance instruction needs. I know I will be reaching out to Irina in the future!
Paulina is an extremely well rounded dancer. She can slow down her body to near impossible speeds and quickly transition into fast paced explosive hip hop combos. She has an adept eye for control and textures in dance which is key to make any dance stand out. She is super friendly and intuitive to quickly assess your needs and problems. Although she is an advanced dancer, she still has a perfect sense of fundamentals which is ideal for a dancer who didn't properly learn their rudiments. Her personal training background allows her to not only to teach dance appropriately, but also helps in letting you know what muscle groups are needed for certain dances. All in all I would recommend Paulina to ANYONE ranging from a beginner to an expert to just someone who wants to learn a certain dance. I've learned more from her in one class that I've learned in a whole week of group dance classes. If you want to start or further your dance skills, Paulina is the one for you!
We have been dancing at the Academy for the past two months. Our instructor Alex is very knowledgeable about a variety of fdance and shown great patience in teaching us to dance. As we learn we are acquiring confidence and more importantly we enjoy learning and practicing at home.
We came to this school to learn salsa we signed up for one of there programs and the experience we have gotten has been amazing.We now can dance not only salsa but four other dances as well.
I've been taking lessons on and off from Michele since 1996. She really knows how to teach her students so they understand. I really love learning to dance from her!
I have taken Latin Ballroom classes with Ernesto, and he is an excellent teacher, able to clearly explain leader and follower skills, and the proper physical technique for executing the most complicated moves (whether in social or competitive styles of dance). He is always calm and fun in his explanations. As a dance artist, he is a thrill to watch, whether in Modern dance pieces, or Ballroom Latin showpieces, with a strong emotional expression of the music and choreography, and a deep connection to his partners that is mesmerizing.
I've been taking dance lessons from Alexei for many years and find that each year gets more interesting in what I am able to achieve. He is the most patient, understanding and talented instructor I could hope to find. Although I don't take lessons from Lola, I can attest to her talent and patience also. Further, they are both genuinely interested in their students and the progress they make. I consider them super!
The instructor was patient and clearly explained the rationale for every step. I was very pleased that he took the time to make sure I understood how to dance the basic steps.
Travis is a true teacher: Passionate, patient and fun! Travis conducted a class of 50 Honors students at my school, teaching them 5 different dances in a two-hour period. What was remarkable was that none of the students had ever danced before, and they came to the event terrified. Within 20 minutes, he had the students engaged and enjoying themselves ... By the end of the evening, they were dancing confidently, having the best time, and eager to know when he could come back! What's unique about Travis' style is he incorporates dance history into your lesson, making for a truly engaging experience. Cannot recommend him highly enough! Hire him to chereograph your wedding dance for a truly magical memory!
They were wonderful working with us and it's obvious they are passionate and know what they are talking about. We had tried a commercial danced studio and had an awful experience being overcharged and feeling like we were being sold more than being taught to dance. While we aren't destined to be pro dancers, we will feel comfortable dancing to our first dance song for our wedding :)
Kelsey is so much fun. She's makes learning very easy. She has awesome energy and loves to keep it simple and professional. Would recommend her to anyone intersected in learning any type of dancing.
Stephen is a fantastic instructor. I am far from a dancer... and he got me to a place a never thought I could be really quickly. He is warm but professional and made me feel comfortable immediately. Well versed dancer. Highly recommended and I have already recommended him to a friend.
Christine makes things easy and fun. Your're going to love it!
I am a dance specialist who trained in ballet and modern. I obtained a degree from Hofstra University titled Bachelors of Science in Dance Education PreK-12. Most of my students are children and adults with autism spectrum disorder. I enjoy working one-on-one with my students for a better outcome and most importantly, witnessing progress and joy in their lives.
Learn the fun-damentals of Tap Dancing and Hoofing style, and grow into an improvisational artist, one step at a time. My basics are rooted and derived from Tap Dance masters such as Buster Brown, Chuck Green, Lon Chaney and a few others. They will have you up and running in no time. Help me to perpetuate this indigenous American art form.
The highlight of my business focuses on health, quality of life and personal and social well-being through the dance.
