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 bought a package of 4 dance lessons as a birthday gift for my wife. Neither of us had much dancing experience, so we were looking for someone who is good with beginners. Arati is kind and friendly and very patient and I would highly recommend her for anyone, but particularly, and solely because this is the limit of my personal experience, for beginners. My wife and I were looking for an introduction in different steps, and Arati was able to teach us salsa and the waltz. She also offered to teach cha cha and bachata, and I imagine she knows additional styles as well. Overall a great experience with someone who was knowledgeable and able to put both my wife and I at ease as we tried something new.
Anna was perfect. I hired her for my wedding last night as a surprise to my husband . And one of our friend hired another belly dancer for us as a surprise so we had 2 different belly dancer and Anna danced second. So i was a little nervous cause I thought it might be a little to much and boring. But she made us to forget the first dancer. She was smiling all night long. Visited all tables and took care of everyone individually. I have no idea how she did it but end off the her dance all guests were on the dance floor and having fun. She is very beautiful and talented. Everyone loved her. Definitely recommend her. Thank you Anna
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!
JesAnn is a tar combination of great dancer, patient instructor, and articulate teacher. I've had lessons with people who can dance but aren't great teachers - Jes is both! Ye, she will push you, but in a good way and will make sure you have fun along the way. After having worked with her for several years, I can confidently say that it doesn't matter if you have two left feet, or you been dancing for years, she can help you!
Both as a team and individually, Shimkiri and Werner really inspire me to become a better dancer, and I highly recommend their services for anyone looking to grow as a dancer or to start dancing! I began taking private Latin dance lessons with Shimkiri about two years ago. I was so impressed by her passion for dancing and her enthusiasm in sharing her talent with her students! She has a great way of staying patient as I learn new steps while still pushing and challenging me enough so that I would improve as a dancer. Later on as we began training for a competition and a showcase, her husband Werner began coaching me, too. Like Shimkiri, he was so eager to share his passion with me, and his instructions were so clear even with the more difficult steps. They are a wonderful couple, and I really encourage anyone looking for dance lessons to see that for themselves!
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!
My fiancé and I wanted some tips and tricks for our first dance at our upcoming wedding. Our lesson was very helpful!!
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!
As a 58 year old woman I was amazed at how patient and full of enthusiasm Ernesto was teaching my group of family members to dance Latin dances for my daughter's wedding. He made the lesson so fun and got us all into it. The best of all was watching his moves...omg what a great dancer! Since I love to dance, I would love for him to take me out on the dance floor and lead me around at an event. You could not ask for a better dance instructor (and he is super handsome also!).
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!
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.
Even if you cannot dance at all, and you want to learn to tango, this is the place to go. They offer different levels, from beginners to advanced and are always so eager to help you advance. All the instructors are professional, but they make it fun. I always look forward to going, to learning, and to be greeted with such warmth. Carolina, Diego and Juan go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, and part of the tango family. Although it is taking lessons, you go hom feeling that you've had a great night out!
The highlight of my business focuses on health, quality of life and personal and social well-being through the dance.
Dancing is the one thing I do better than most men. It is part of my life and culture that I can do in my sleep. I dance on the two and can demonstrate anytime and anywhere.
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.
