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.
We highly recommend Arati if you're thinking of dance lessons. We are working with Arati for our First Dance. Arati is such a sweetheart, and has a bubbly personality that can make anyone smile. She's been extremely patient, and great to work with for first-timers like us. Even my fiancé, who was lukewarm about taking lessons, really enjoyed the classes!
I took Latin Dance lessons with Linda in New York and found her to be a fantastic teacher: very patient, highly knowledgable, and able to explain complex dances in a simple way
Jose Is a great instructor and person. After only a few lessons I have learned a lot especially that I do not have two left feet. With Jose's encouragement and patience I am looking forward to learning a lot more.
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 boyfriend and I took swing dancing lessons from Jes. To say that we are klutzy would be an understatement. However, Jes was always so patient and made the dancing so much fun. My boyfriend was pretty reluctant about it until he met Jes and then he was on board. Jes was always so sweet and remembered what we had told her on previous visits. She's also an AMAZING dancer and I'm always so impressed by her skills.
Irina was originally my trainer and when I wanted to get into swing dance she was the obvious choice. She demystified the steps, corrected my form and gave me all the necessary tools for getting out on the dance floor. I am more than satisfied, she is an enthusiastic, supportive, precise professional with an encyclopedic knowledge of her craft and able to prevent my mistakes before I make them!
Both as a team and individually, Shimkiri and Werner really inspire me to become a better dancer, and I highly recommend their services for anyone looking to grow as a dancer or to start dancing! I began taking private Latin dance lessons with Shimkiri about two years ago. I was so impressed by her passion for dancing and her enthusiasm in sharing her talent with her students! She has a great way of staying patient as I learn new steps while still pushing and challenging me enough so that I would improve as a dancer. Later on as we began training for a competition and a showcase, her husband Werner began coaching me, too. Like Shimkiri, he was so eager to share his passion with me, and his instructions were so clear even with the more difficult steps. They are a wonderful couple, and I really encourage anyone looking for dance lessons to see that for themselves!
Liz Peterson is truly the best dance teacher my husband and I have had--and we've taken ballroom/latin dance quite a number of times. She is a GREAT communicator and demonstrator, a great dancer, steeped in knowledge of the dances and their history and culture, and a wonderfully warm, caring and funny human being. And I know that everyone else in the classes we've taken with her has felt the same way. Can't recommend her highly enough.
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!
We worked with Brenda for a brief period to prepare my 10 year old daughter before a round of ballet auditions. My daughter had taken a few months break from dance, and Brenda was wonderful in helping her with specific areas she needed to focus on, to regain her confidence, and to look forward to getting back into the world of dance! My daughter felt very comfortable with her from the start and we were impressed with her responsiveness and professionalism, especially taking into account the need we had for a quick turnaround time. From our brief experience with Brenda, I would recommend her!
George is fantastic! A very kind and communicative person. Great professional! Thanks a lot for dancing lesson! We enjoyed a lot!

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!).
The instructor was patient and clearly explained the rationale for every step. I was very pleased that he took the time to make sure I understood how to dance the basic steps.
I had always wanted to try Bellydancing so I gathered some friends and was lucky enough to find a professional like Fernanda. Her warm, friendly personality made us feel welcome . We weren’t sure what to expect, and were pleased that with Fernanda’s patients, we were actually able to do a lot of the dance moves! She also demonstrated many styles of Bellydancing and told us some of the history. We were also thrilled when she showed us some of the beautiful costumes she gets to wear for her worldwide tours! I highly recommend taking lessons from the amazing, talented Fernanda!
She is awesome! I hired her to make me presentable (dance wise) for my daughters wedding. Focused on the father daughter dance and swing. Extremly skilled,professional, patient and great personality.
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!
We absolutely loved working with Luna Dance Company to choreograph both an introductory and first dance for our wedding. Imani was so patient and kind and is such a talented dance instructor. She understood the type of dance we wanted from the beginning and was able to teach us the steps in only a few short weeks. Our dance is amazing and we can’t wait to share it with our wedding guests next week. We highly recommend this company especially for any beginners! Thank you both so much for everything!!
