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 taught my husband and I basic Salsa steps to Bollywood tunes. We wanted to do a fusion performance for my brothers wedding in India, and asked her to do private classes with us. Not only did we have oh-so-much fun while prepping for it, Arati made the steps easy to follow and broke down each part so two-left-feet people like us could end up looking like novices on stage. We left with a applauding crowd, a bag of memories and a new friend! Highly recommend trying her classes in NYC or hiring her for a private dance lesson.
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
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 !
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!
Candice was amazing. She came up with a super fun routine for us to use with our first dance. Her high level of energy kept us going late into the evening. I would highly recommend Candice to anyone.
Great teacher, small groups, family athmosfere, lots of attention, feels like you have private lessons, learning a lot of different dances upon our request, great, pleasurable experience, would highly recommend!

Michele is a great teacher who not only improved my dance skills, but my golf game got better with my increased flexibility as well.
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!).
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 ...
I've been taking dance lessons from Alexei for many years and find that each year gets more interesting in what I am able to achieve. He is the most patient, understanding and talented instructor I could hope to find. Although I don't take lessons from Lola, I can attest to her talent and patience also. Further, they are both genuinely interested in their students and the progress they make. I consider them super!
Achiko is a great instructor for beginners. Highly recommend. Prices are reasonable for private lessons.
Well I own a restaurant and I hired a lot of belly dancers to dance in my place and Fernanda is simply the best. Hire her, you won’t be disappointed, she is the real deal.
Stephen has been a great teacher! He is an awesome dancer and has an awesome personality. I have only had a few lessons so far, but I can already tell that I am improving and I am more conscious of my posture and lines. Stephen is pretty punctual, and professional for sure. Five stars.
Kelsey is so much fun. She's makes learning very easy. She has awesome energy and loves to keep it simple and professional. Would recommend her to anyone intersected in learning any type of dancing.
