Dariusz adapted the lessons to my specific goal and needs, from the very beginning. I had a first introductory salsa lesson and what I need is to learn in a very short time, I was able to understand what to focus on and work on so that the lessons could be as efficient as possible thanks to his observation and his guidance.

Definitely recommended...!!! I have taken 6 beginner salsa classes so far and I can do basics pretty well. Feels great 😄I would definitely continue taking more classes. Classes are every Thursday 7-8pm. The classes are at pace that most people can follow with lots of practice and encouragement from instructor. Arati is a great instructor, very keen on every detail of gesture, timing of movement etc.... People who are in this class are very friendly and easy to dance with. I would definitely recommend anyone to join her class and it's affordable :)

Irina is a spectacular teacher who took us from bumbling beginners to competent salsa dancers in a relatively short amount of time. She has an amazing ability to take seemingly complex steps and make them easy to understand and learn, no matter your ability or experience level. She’s also friendly and fun to work with, flexible and generous with her time, which was great for me and my fiancée who work late and unpredictable schedules. She helped us choreograph a great dance for our upcoming wedding, and taught us the fundamentals that will keep us dancing salsa regularly for years to come. I cannot recommend Irina highly enough!

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!!!!

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.

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!

She has been teaching my wife and me ballroom dancing for the last 15 years, when we began as total beginners. Although her knowledge of underlying dancing fundamentals seems boundless, it is her exceptional teaching skills that make it such a delight to be among her student population. She: . rapidly develops a close relationship with her students, and is always willing to listen to them when there are problems; . is patient, caring, and kind, with a keen sensitivity to her students' differences . has a deep understanding of the pace and capacity of her students, tailoring her instruction to meet each learner's needs - male and female and couples; . loves ballroom dancing and is dedicated to teaching it, always demonstrating a commitment to her students' success. Great teachers are hard to find. She is one of the outstanding few.

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 had a short period of lessons from Eno, he was one of the best ballroom dance instructors I ever had. Picked up my weak points quickly and spent so much time to correct and answered all my endless questions till I was fully satisfied; hence, I didn't hesitate to ask anything I wondered and could talk openly, which is very important to build a good dancing relationship. By looking at his way to dance and teach, I thought he had danced almost 10 years but actually it was much less surprisingly. He must be so talented. I wish he were in my town, would highly recommend to all levels of dancers!!

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!

Even if you cannot dance at all, and you want to learn to tango, this is the place to go. They offer different levels, from beginners to advanced and are always so eager to help you advance. All the instructors are professional, but they make it fun. I always look forward to going, to learning, and to be greeted with such warmth. Carolina, Diego and Juan go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, and part of the tango family. Although it is taking lessons, you go hom feeling that you've had a great night out!

    I met Arturo at Swing 46 when I was celebrating a friend's 40th birthday. Arturo taught the beginner dance lesson and was very concise with his instructions and ability to make the patrons comfortable both with the lesson and with their own abilties. I have since taken lessons with Arturo and he is very patient with his teaching and guidance. He is a good lead without being overbearing and my experience when dancing with him is always positive.

      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.

I'm seeking a route in the professional dance industry but my dream has always been to teach others hip-hop and contemporary movement. I'm eager to work with anyone who is willing to learn a few steps, some confidence, and the art of everything dance. I am also TESOL/TESL/TEFL certified to teach ESL students!
