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 :)

My fiance and I came in for beginner dance classes with Priti for our wedding ceremony. We both enjoy music but had zero formal dancing experience, so this was naturally a bit out there for us. Right off the bat, Priti was really great at understanding our vision and what we we're looking for in our first dance. She was able to teach us basics around ramba, salsa, and swing, which we're all incorporated into our dance routine. As beginners, learning the basics prior to learning different routine executions made putting everything together much easier in the grand scheme of things. Each lesson, she worked with us on improvements and made sure to adjust the dance accordingly based on our feedback/hesitations across particular areas. Overall, it was a very calming experience that left us very well prepared for our wedding. We are very happy with the service we received from Priti and received amazing feedback from our friends and family on our performance. We would 100% recommend her for anyone looking to work with someone reassuring, patient, and very knowledgeable in her craft. Thanks Priti!!

Jose has the ability to make you feel like you can really learn how to dance even if you're only a beginner. His decades of experience are irreplaceable. His enthudiasm for dance is unmatched. Jose got me out of my shell and brought me from a beginner to someone who won't miss my weekly lesson for any reason . I have so much fun, have gained so much confidence, have met so many wonderful people in the dance world. Thank you Jose for a gift that keeps on giving!

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 had taken several beginner dance classes at studios, but always had a hard time keeping up and understanding the movement. Unfortunately, I never got much out of these classes, and always left discouraged. The first class I took with Monika was completely different. She is able to break down every movement and move at the individual pace and comfort level of each student. Her teaching method is extremely comprehensive, encouraging, and above all fun! I am thrilled with the progress I’ve seen in just a couple of months, mostly with the comfort I now feel in my own movement. When I leave her class, I am excited to return for the next one.

Just had my first session with Paulina this afternoon and can't wait for our next session! She was super patient with me as I am a total beginner in dance! As the session went on, I also found out that she is a personal trainer! We decided that it would be a great idea to combine both so I can learn the flow of my body motion from dancing and also build up muscles from training! I am glad that I took the first step in being active and also found someone like Paulina to get me into shape!

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!

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!

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 am a New York based dancer previously trained at Broadway Dance Center.

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!
