The most enjoyable learning session I have experienced. He adapts to the way I learn. He explains then demonstrates in his lessons. I felt comfortable enough to ask questions. This was not my first salsa lesson but it was the first time I did not feel frustrated, overwhelmed and defeated after a lesson. Look forward to my progression with lessons.

Arati is a super cool, friendly and fun instructor! I really appreciate her teaching style and content, as well as the warm and open environment that she provides for, in the class. I have learned so much in such a short time! She has a keen eye and provides excellent feedback on the subtle nuances with close individualized attention. Her attention to your technique is unmatched. She simplifies movements, offers helpful cues about technique and imparts confidence all while keeping the class fun. Very highly recommend Arati’s Salsa lessons! 

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

I came to Irina with two left feet and a whole lot of trepidation. I had only danced a few times previously, and because I really had no clue what I was doing, I was a bit uncomfortable. Irina helped to change that. In just a handful of lessons, Irina taught me the basic steps, how to lead, and a few showy moves so I can make my date look hot on the dance floor! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to learn to dance, and will be returning myself for salsa lessons! Thank you Irina!

I am brand new to Salsa and Paulina approached our lesson with patience. She is a phenomenal teacher and I feel like I've learned so much after only one lesson already. I look forward to continuing my lessons with Paulina and learning Salsa!

    We just finished our 6 lessons with Carmen. The whole experience was very positive! My fiance is shy therefore being in a private room for the lessons is definitely a great help! Carmen did a 1.5 mins dance for us and the dance couldn't be better. We love it! It's simple, easy, fun, and it's just US!

    Jiyon is an amazing instructor and a lovely person. I am a beginner who was always interested in ballet. I took some group classes before but I wasn't getting much. I was too beginner and needed more focused attention and extra help. When I started to take private lessons with Jiyon, she was very helpful in explaining very basics of ballet as well as body parts and their functions so I can pose properly. I am liking ballet more than ever and greatly enjoying learning from her. She challenges me each class and I can feel and see that I am improving. I am so thankful for her! I recommend her to people at all levels. She is great!

      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.

      Hi! I am more than willing to work with all ages and supply knowledge of various types of dances. Dancing is more than a hobby; it is art and takes a great deal of athleticism.
