My wife and I decided to take up dance lessons with Arati for our first dance together at our reception, and we were so glad we did. She was so easy to work with, professional, and made our classes fun and memorable. I would highly recommend her for any of your dance and choreography needs. -Kevin
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!!!!
I have been taking lessons with Jose since August and am having such an extraordinary experience that I must compliment him. I was never able to follow and dance with a man--I decided to take up dance after some personal losses, so after enjoying a dance cruise and taking lessons with a half dozen pros and trying group lessons which I kept missing because of work, I realized I'd never learn without intensive private lessons. This was my first thumbtack experience so was not expecting to find the most brilliant dance teacher on the planet, but I did! I'm dancing 3-6 hours a week with Jose for 2-months now, so can attest that Jose is a very special dancer and person. A few highlights of my experience: 1) Teaching skill. As a dance teacher, Jose has extraordary technical expertise and the ability of a truly great teacher to translate that into true, long-lasting advancement of my skills. I'm learning so much more than steps. It's all about becoming grounded in proper form and technique, so that most steps become almost a natural extension of that, with style as the ever present icing on the cake. Jose and a strong and exacting leader but also so kind-hearted and warm that his corrections and adjustments feel inspiring, not critical. He recognizes every accomplishment and makes every lesson a pleasurable experience. 2) Professionalism. Jose is always punctual, always waiting there for me. He confirms with exact location before every lesson. He takes the responsibility very seriously and provides excellent value for my time and expense. 3) Demeanor. Jose is very fun and uniquely warm but also such a courtly gentleman that dancing closely is very comfortable for a female student. He has this outgoing and charming but also even-keeled and kind personality. He manages to be gentle while exacting which is a unique skill for a teacher. He's so patient and supportive that my own frustration when I repeat my most common mistakes (mostly) melts away. Jose is a wonderful dance teacher and as my mom would say, a true "mensch". He's just a delightful person. I know it's more credible if you add a "lesser strength", but I honestly can't extract a single flaw or disappointment from my experience. Jose has instilled such a love of dance in me, I only wish we could do even more lessons each week!
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.
I can't say enough good things about max dance lessons.Max is very warm, welcoming, friendly and also an incredible dance teacher. He teaches you step by step so you dont feel overwhelmed and get to the steps very well. I have seen many dance teachers but none compare to max. I will deff br continuing my lessons. Well worth it
Candice was amazing. She came up with a super fun routine for us to use with our first dance. Her high level of energy kept us going late into the evening. I would highly recommend Candice to anyone.
Priti was so kind and patient with us. We were very stressed because of the wedding planning but taking her class relieved some of that. Our first dance was wonderful and taking lessons with Priti made us feel more comfortable on the dance floor.
Barbara is an excellent music instructor. I have had 3 sessions so far and feel like I have learned so much from her. I can't wait to see how much more I will improve in the next 3 sessions. I'm glad I signed up for singing lessons at the Alexander Music Studio!
I came to Irina with two left feet and a whole lot of trepidation. I had only danced a few times previously, and because I really had no clue what I was doing, I was a bit uncomfortable. Irina helped to change that. In just a handful of lessons, Irina taught me the basic steps, how to lead, and a few showy moves so I can make my date look hot on the dance floor! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to learn to dance, and will be returning myself for salsa lessons! Thank you Irina!
George is fantastic! A very kind and communicative person. Great professional! Thanks a lot for dancing lesson! We enjoyed a lot!
My boyfriend and I took swing dancing lessons from Jes. To say that we are klutzy would be an understatement. However, Jes was always so patient and made the dancing so much fun. My boyfriend was pretty reluctant about it until he met Jes and then he was on board. Jes was always so sweet and remembered what we had told her on previous visits. She's also an AMAZING dancer and I'm always so impressed by her skills.
Tatum has been teaching dance to my daughter for one year. She is an experienced, energetic and enthusiastic teacher. Additionally, she is a caring and genuinely nice person. She goes out of her way to accommodate our needs. We highly recommend her.
Olga is a great instructor, down-to-earth, funny, willing to spend time developing your inner dancer!! Each lesson will incorporate technique and routine steps. You will leave confident and ready to perform!!
Great teacher, small groups, family athmosfere, lots of attention, feels like you have private lessons, learning a lot of different dances upon our request, great, pleasurable experience, would highly recommend!
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!
