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 Aratis Salsa lessons! 
Linda is a great instructor, I'm just beginning with my salsa lessons and I look forward to seeing the progress with each new lesson.
Priti was kind enough to come to our home and give us dance lessons for our Wedding.
I have been taking lessons with Jose since August and am having such an extraordinary experience that I must compliment him. I was never able to follow and dance with a man--I decided to take up dance after some personal losses, so after enjoying a dance cruise and taking lessons with a half dozen pros and trying group lessons which I kept missing because of work, I realized I'd never learn without intensive private lessons. This was my first thumbtack experience so was not expecting to find the most brilliant dance teacher on the planet, but I did! I'm dancing 3-6 hours a week with Jose for 2-months now, so can attest that Jose is a very special dancer and person. A few highlights of my experience: 1) Teaching skill. As a dance teacher, Jose has extraordary technical expertise and the ability of a truly great teacher to translate that into true, long-lasting advancement of my skills. I'm learning so much more than steps. It's all about becoming grounded in proper form and technique, so that most steps become almost a natural extension of that, with style as the ever present icing on the cake. Jose and a strong and exacting leader but also so kind-hearted and warm that his corrections and adjustments feel inspiring, not critical. He recognizes every accomplishment and makes every lesson a pleasurable experience. 2) Professionalism. Jose is always punctual, always waiting there for me. He confirms with exact location before every lesson. He takes the responsibility very seriously and provides excellent value for my time and expense. 3) Demeanor. Jose is very fun and uniquely warm but also such a courtly gentleman that dancing closely is very comfortable for a female student. He has this outgoing and charming but also even-keeled and kind personality. He manages to be gentle while exacting which is a unique skill for a teacher. He's so patient and supportive that my own frustration when I repeat my most common mistakes (mostly) melts away. Jose is a wonderful dance teacher and as my mom would say, a true "mensch". He's just a delightful person. I know it's more credible if you add a "lesser strength", but I honestly can't extract a single flaw or disappointment from my experience. Jose has instilled such a love of dance in me, I only wish we could do even more lessons each week!
Olga was awesome to work with - my husband and I wanted to get some lessons for our first dance at our wedding and we're SO happy we found her. She knew exactly what style to do once she heard our song, and choreographed the whole thing for us from start to finish. Within the first lesson, she knew exactly what she wanted to teach us and have us do. And to top it off, she was so fun to work with! I think she probably had us laughing more times than not throughout our lessons - we highly recommend her!!!!
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 came to this school to learn salsa we signed up for one of there programs and the experience we have gotten has been amazing.We now can dance not only salsa but four other dances as well.
Achiko is a great instructor for beginners. Highly recommend. Prices are reasonable for private lessons.
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!
After taking his private lessons, I am getting better, and I am still taking his private lessons. He is a good teacher.
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.
Very fun! Signed up for social salsa dance package before w/ Chris R and Chris Porter. So happy to have found them again by this app!
