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.

We highly recommend Arati if you're thinking of dance lessons. We are working with Arati for our First Dance. Arati is such a sweetheart, and has a bubbly personality that can make anyone smile. She's been extremely patient, and great to work with for first-timers like us. Even my fiancé, who was lukewarm about taking lessons, really enjoyed the classes!

We hired Anna for our son's first birthday party... She was a pleasure to have as an entertainer for my guests. Everyone enjoyed her amazing dance moves. My guests (little ones & adults) especially loved the dance with the candles on her head. Anna definitely kept the audience entertained. My son was mesmerized by her. We will highly recommend her to our friends and family. : )

The best thing about our wedding dance lesson with our teacher Irina was the confidence she gave us. Neither of us are dancers and the difference in our dancing from the start of the lesson to the end was amazing. The style of our first dance was suited to our ability and needs and Irina made us both feel really comfortable. All the guests loved it! Irina is very professional, friendly and patient ! We highly recommend her as a dance teacher !

My husband and I can't recommend Olga enough to anyone looking to take dance lessons. We asked her to choreograph our wedding song. We wanted a slow song to start and then have it pick up to a fast song. She did such an excellent job. Our guests at the wedding loved it. She was fun to work with and very encouraging. She helped us create such a special moment we will never forget!

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

My daughter has great experiences working Brenda and loves to work with her! Brenda has been in ballet business for many years and has experiences. She can customize and indivisualize the lessons based on the level. My daughter has developed and refined many skills since working with Brenda. We highly recommend Brenda for ballet private lessons!!

Andrianna was our dance instructor for salsa lessons and the hustle. She is a very patient person, especially when your husband had two left feet. When we decided to choreograph a dance for our wedding, she easily transitioned us into swing with a bit of hustle in the middle. It's great taking classes with her as she knows when to step in and take the lead, pretty much to quell any arguments. And her choreography was so fun! Resort said it was the best dance they'd seen! She was even there to rehearse with us. I cannot recommend her enough! Amazing ...

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!).

My husband and I thank Carmen for our first dance. Jim was never comfortable learning to dance until we met her. She used an excellent method to help him with steps. She was encouraging and patient, and our confidence grew so much. When we watched our videos, we couldn't believe how great we looked. Thank you!

We had an amazing experience working with Adrienne! She was so patient and understanding as she taught us our wedding dance. Although I have two left feet, she somehow transformed me into a dancer, with the confidence to dance in front of over 300 people! Thank you, Adrienne!

I had a short period of lessons from Eno, he was one of the best ballroom dance instructors I ever had. Picked up my weak points quickly and spent so much time to correct and answered all my endless questions till I was fully satisfied; hence, I didn't hesitate to ask anything I wondered and could talk openly, which is very important to build a good dancing relationship. By looking at his way to dance and teach, I thought he had danced almost 10 years but actually it was much less surprisingly. He must be so talented. I wish he were in my town, would highly recommend to all levels of dancers!!

I have over 15 years teaching dance from ages 18 months through adults. I teach almost everything, from ballet, point, contemporary, modern, jazz, strengthening and stretching, and salsa. I have also performed professionally. As well as teaching at my business, I teach children and adults privately in the studio or at their home. I can help students with dance showcases, choreography for audition routines, or privates geared on personal goals. I am very flexible to a persons needs and what they are looking to accomplish.

      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 Elisa. So far I've attended a few private ballet dance lessons with Elisa since this spring and found her 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. I've already learned so much technical terms and improved my overall body tone and posture. Elisa is one of the most patient, well-trained, highly skilled, reliable, and experienced ballet instructor in the NYC Area. Not only does she offer extremely competitive rates, but she is also very accommodating and her schedule is fairly open and flexible. As aforementioned, I've taken privates and group classes elsewhere, but they pale in comparison to Elisa. Elisa carries a commendable etiquette and a soothing personality; she doesn't rush or blaze through the techniques with frustration and arrogance as others have with me. So all in all, I recommend seeing Elisa whether you are an absolute beginner, like me, or a professional dancer. Keep up the good work Elisa! Best, SC.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How much do dance lessons cost?

      Adults who want to learn to dance, whether to prepare for a wedding or to meet new people, often enjoy taking dance lessons from an experienced dance instructor. Instructors may offer classes one-on-one to individual students or couples, or to small groups. The national average cost for a dance instructor ranges from $30 to $50. Some studios offer a discounted introductory lessons or group lessons, as well as package deals that are more affordable than paying for individual lessons. Some dance instructors will travel to the student’s home, which usually costs more, while others hold small-group sessions in their studios. If you choose a small-group class, expect to pay less than for individual dance lessons.
