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 so wonderful to work with! We hired her to help us learn a few basic dance steps for our wedding since both my fiance and I have two left feet :) We only purchased the 4 pack of lessons, but she ended up choreographing our entire first dance for us! We were so pleasantly surprised at how much fun we had at each lesson and how quickly we were able to learn. Arati was great at teaching us as beginners and very patient with us as we fumbled through a few steps. Her communication was also excellent - always quick to respond and very personable! I would definitely recommend her to any couple looking for wedding dance lessons, you will not be let down. Thank you Arati!!!

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

My Dance lessons with Jes were some of the best I've ever had. She got me off my feet and showed me what West Coast Swing was all about. She was always, always professional, on time, and for a great price too. I now think of her as a good friend and I'm always excited when she comes to Texas.

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!

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!
