I was really nervous about taking dance lessons, I almost cancelled many times, but I am so very glad that I didn't. After meeting Dariusz and spending the first 5 minutes of the lesson I knew I made the right choice in not only sticking to the appointment, but in my teacher. Dariusz not only pays attention to form (mechanics) but to his student's frame of mind and works tirelessly and patiently to eliminate negative thoughts and replace them with only the positive. He is more than a dance teacher, he really cares about his students. This after just one lesson, I can't wait for more. I am going to gain much more than the ability to dance with more confidence than I've ever had, he is going to impact me in the most positive way one person can affect another. Dariusz is a really wise choice. Try it and find out for yourself you will NOT be disappointed.

Arati was exactly what we needed! We had a great experience with her wedding dance lessons, she was able to take the two of us who are very inexperienced and knew nothing to prepare an awesome dance! She has a lot of patience, easy to schedule with and great sense of humor, we had a great time working with her!

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

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 !

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!

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.

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!

They were wonderful working with us and it's obvious they are passionate and know what they are talking about. We had tried a commercial danced studio and had an awful experience being overcharged and feeling like we were being sold more than being taught to dance. While we aren't destined to be pro dancers, we will feel comfortable dancing to our first dance song for our wedding :)
