Being a neophyte in any form of ballroom dancing, I found Karol to be an excellent, encouraging, and patient instructor with an engaging personality who always put me at ease and made my lessons a fun experience.

Karol is absolutely the best dance instructor! I had zero prior dance lessons and consider myself pretty uncoordinated, but he started teaching me the basics and was always extremely patient. My husband and I are in the medical field and have pretty inflexible schedules, and Karol was more than accommodating to fit in as many lessons as we could before the big day. He studied our music, came up with amazing choreography and was always looking for our input on what moves we desired and what feeling we wanted to evoke. Karol was always our biggest cheerleader even when we were feeling discouraged. Our dance sessions became my favorite part of wedding prep! I highly recommend him to everyone!!

I took beginner-level dance lessons with Karol in 2017 and found him to be a thorough and knowledgeable instructor in the American and International styles. He was personable and encouraging, and I always looked forward to my lessons with him.

Karol is an absolute pleasure to work with! My wife and I asked him to help us for our first dance at our wedding. We have no experience with ballroom dancing but we showed him the song we wanted and he was able to put together a beautiful piece for us. He taught us when it was convenient for us which was huge because our schedules before the wedding were all over the place; even traveled to us when we were pressed for time which we greatly appreciated. Above all, Karol is very patient and creates a supportive atmosphere which really helps when you don’t feel so confident; he encourages you to have fun with it! We were rather nervous when the big day came but he reassured us we were ready and it turned out to be beautiful. Will never forget it. Thank you Karol!!
