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.
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!
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.

I teach private salsa lessons for those who want to learn Salsa as a partner dance form, and as a way to express oneself through movement. Private classes are also perfect for those who want to fine-tune movement and monitor coordination during partner work and those who want to perform or get feedback on improving their stage performance & presence as a salsa dancer. If you need a sassy, fun and classy Latin routine for your wedding - I'm your gal :) I also teach group classes as a great social activity and as a great physical activity that activates the mind, too. For those seeking choreography for events, my group, Casa de la Salsa, offer performances for parties and benefits.
Laci is enthusiastic, kind hearted, a great dance leader, and very thoughtful about my limitations and medical status. She went out of her way to make sure I knew about prenatal exercise guidelines before we started. She also was willing to customize our classes to dance moves I love! Plus, the workout was just what my body needed. Can't recommend her highly enough.
Not only is Katy a amazing dancer, she is a wonderful person. To call her passionate would be an understatement. I am lucky to have gotten the opportunity to work closely with her. Her choreography and guidance pushed me to become a better dancer. I highly recommend her dance instruction!
The School of Russian American Ballet at Kingsborough is a dance school that is dedicated to providing the highest quality of dance education for girls and boys ages 2 to 19 as well as adults.
I would recommend Barbi Powers in a heartbeat. I have taken Yoga, Dance, and Pilates with Barbi Powers. I was introduced to her through my Pilates class, where I found out how talented she was and subsequently began taking classes with her. From her outstanding dance instruction, she has taken (me) a stiff-upper bodied trip-over-my-own-feet non-dancer and transformed me into a dancer for life. I never expected to be taking ballet classes, and be able to hold my own in a professional level ballet class. Yet with Barbi's patience, creativity, presence, and high-level skill in understanding me and my body...well, she did it. Her encouragement, succinct teaching command, superb choreography skills, humor and patience are sure signs that Barbi is a terrific instructor that goes above and beyond. She has an eye for form as well, so you better watch out if you point your index fingers (only) instead of being in a true first position. Truly, I wouldn't be anywhere in dance if not for her. I wouldn't be dreaming or rather beginning the path of professional dance were it not for her push, time, and inspiration. With regards to Yoga, I couldn't help but notice how clear, professional, cat-like, delighted, and smart a yoga teacher Barbi is. She connects with people and that is awesome. I felt welcomed in her class, and felt everyone was as well. One on one, this yogi helped me so much with my practice via correcting form, providing visual images to inspire poses, and pushes me appropriately. She balanced laughter, hard-work, focus and catered it all to me. For any personal training, be it via dance, yoga, or pilates, you can't get better than that. I'm thoroughly, and constantly impressed by her many skills as a teacher of dance, yoga and Pilates.
I teach dancing classes. What makes me different from others is that I am actually teaching dancers to create their own styles and grow their own technique which makes them unique among others.
I'm a hip-hop dancer and teacher. Not only I dance hip-hop but also jazz and contemporary. I love dancing, and I would love to share what I know. I'm ready and happy to learn from you as well! My dream is to travel around the world meeting people and sharing dances and stories.
Aisha Francis, synonymous with professionalism, creativity, and a killer pair of pumps, began her professional dance career as a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers throughout their 2001 and 2002 championship seasons. During her stint as a Laker Girl, Aisha performed with Bette Midler on her hit show "Bette," signed with an illustrious Hollywood dance agency, and within two days, she landed her first movie role, thus jump-starting a decade-long career as an entertainer and movement specialist. World tours with recording artists, television appearances, and commercials requested Aisha's talents that led to a shining performance in "The Ten Commandments" musical starring Val Kilmer in 2004. More recently, Aisha has been featured on such prominent television shows as American Idol, Dancing With the Stars, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, Good Morning America, Ellen, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Comic View on BET, and more. Aisha can be seen dazzling the screen in such feature films as "Burlesque," "Bring it on Fight to the Finish," "The Country Bears," and "Malibu's Most Wanted." It was an honor to perform for former President Bush at the Kennedy Center honor awards for Tina Turner, one of Aisha's idols. Aisha has performed along side with such artists as Prince, Cher, Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland, Rihanna, Ceelo Green, K Michelle, Sean Paul, Usher, Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj, Ciara, Shaggy, Jewel, Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder, Kid Rock, Robin Thicke, Jon Secada, and Omarion. From the wind in her hips to the toss of her hair, Aisha's energy and vivacity erupts onstage and causes even the likes of recording artists to take note and hire her to spice up their performances. Moreover, it was Aisha's work with Beyonce Knowles that propelled her career as dancer, choreographer, and movement specialist. For more than four years, Aisha toured the world as Beyonce's right-hand dancer and dance captain, formerly serving as assistant choreographer and cocreator of the "Crazy in Love" booty dance. This career highlight established Aisha's credibility in sensual movement and became a force to be reckoned with in a pair of pumps. Other movement clients include Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, Julianne Hough, Christina Aguilera, Kristen Bell, Nicole Sherzinger, Nelly Furtado, EnVogue, Rita Ora, and Elle Varner, just to name a few. It was and still is Aisha's experience as a professional dancer, choreographer, and personal movement coach that she realized her true passion was teaching women to be "fierce" all day, every day. Currently, she choreographs movement for actors and singers for music videos, commercials, feature films, photo shoots, and red carpet training.
