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.

Arati was exactly what we needed! We had a great experience with her wedding dance lessons, she was able to take the two of us who are very inexperienced and knew nothing to prepare an awesome dance! She has a lot of patience, easy to schedule with and great sense of humor, we had a great time working with her!

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. : )

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

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!

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!

Ms. Brenda is a Fantastic Teacher, my daughter who is 13 years old never did Ballet before. When she started to go to ballet class with Ms. Brenda, I noticed how quickly she learned especially since Ballet is very difficult. Ms. Brenda puts in so much effort in all her students! I highly recommend Ms. Brenda Cruz. Yoselin my daughter, who needed to learn Ballet in such short time because she had auditions for school, I'm very pleased with Ms. Brenda work. If you're looking for a dance teacher please look into Ms. Brenda.

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!).

Aasiyah is incredibly beautiful and elegant! She is able to capture the true essence of Egyptian dance, mesmerizing audiences and providing an unforgettable experience for guests. As a teacher, Aasiyah is incredibly knowledgeable not only in dance technique, but in music and culture as well. She is very patient with students, while continuing to challenge them to their maximum potential. I have been her regular student for over 2 years now and I look forward to every class!

Keomi is an excellent teacher who is full of creativity and energy. Her class gives you a full cardio workout where you come out soaked, but it is so fun that you don’t notice how hard you’ve worked. You WILL learn hip hop moves and choreography which is very accessible and gives you a sense of accomplishment and a sense of being part of a community who dances together while accepting our individual styles and talents.

We took 8 (or so) lessons in preparation for our wedding. Neither of us had ever ballroom danced before... and we had one month until the wedding. Natalie and Tony were AMAZING. Sooooooo nice and friendly - did not making dancing intimidating. And they whipped us into shape in time for a perfect wedding dance. I would 100% recommend Fred Astair Dance Studio of Morristown to anyone looking to learn to dance - including engaged couples preparing for their wedding. We set aside some money in our budget for this and I do not regret it one bit - it was easily one of my favorite parts of the night!
