Klaudia is amazing! We worked with her to help us with a first dance for our wedding and she honestly provided us with so much more. She had listened to our song ahead of time, messaged us with dance ideas, listened to our feedback and what we wanted, and continued to adapt and change the plan with us throughout the 7 lessons we had with her. She was very responsive and flexible with setting lessons times. Out of all the things, her patience with us was exactly what we needed. We are both a little awkward performing in front of people and she put us at ease. She was also so patient with us when we had several breakdowns throughout the process due to my fiancé and I having different ideas of what we wanted. We like to joke she was the best pre marital counselor we could have had, LOL. Thank you Klaudia!

Klaudia is a very professional dance teacher. We wanted to learn our first dance for our upcoming wedding and Klaudia was very creative in choreography according to our style. We felt very comfortable from the first lesson and she made the whole dancing experience very pleasant. We highly recommend her.

I was struggling to find a dance instructor in Manhattan. There are tons of instructors on here but many seem to hide their rates or charge crazy high prices. Also, I noticed many don’t seem to cater to first dances for weddings due to their skill set. I had abandoned the idea of dance lessons for our wedding due to our limited time and interactions on here. Then, pops up an email from Klaudia. She is highly qualified to teach a variety of styles of dance. Also, her prices are shared upfront and reasonable. She has a flexible schedule and teaches in a centrally located studio in Manhattan. She is very easy to reach so we were able to communicate quickly and arrange our first session. My fiancé and I showed up completely unsure of what to expect. She put us right at ease, listened to our song before we arrived and got right into her plan for our first dance. She’s extremely clear and takes your level of dance and ideas into consideration. At first we were so awkward dancing together but she consistently encouraged and motivated us. By the end of the session we were laughing and couldn’t wait to schedule our next meeting! We’ve met with her many times since and are excited to share our dance with our friends and family during our wedding. Klaudia has given my fiancé and I a new hobby we love together. I absolutely recommend Klaudia and am certain you should give her a try if you’re considering lessons!

My wife and I had no idea how to dance and were only a week away from our wedding when we contacted Klaudia. In just two lessons, she came up with and taught us a routine that impressed all our guests! She was friendly, attentive, and encouraging. Can't recommend her enough!

Thank you so much Michael! It was such a pleasure to work with you both!

My fiancé and I really enjoy our dance lessons with Klaudia. She made both of us comfortable since we first started our lesson (esp my fiancé who’s newto ballroom dancing). We’ve only gotten through the intro but I can already tell we’re going to have an amazing choreographed first dance. I highly recommend her for anybody who’s looking for a dance instructor for their wedding’s first dance or dancing lessons in general. On top of her awesome dancing and teaching skills, she also has a wonderful personality. 🤍 She has been very accomodating considering how indecisive and fickle minded I could be. I lost count as to how many times I changed my mind about the song for our first dance. 😂 I’m also grateful for her rekindling my passion for dancing.
