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.

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 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.

Hi, My son who is 8 years old recently started classes at Mind Your Body. He has never taken any formal instruction before. Since he was a tot he always had a desire to dance whenever he heard music either in the car, at social events or in our home. Since taking these lessons it gave him an opportunity to be creative, enthusiastic and confident expressing himself which is not incorporated in the other sports he currently participates in.. What I enjoy about this facility is that the instructors tailor the music and type of dance to my son's interests. They are dedicated professionals and we are very pleased to be at Mind Your Body! Best, Suzy

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!

About

Steven T. Williams began dancing at the age of 9 when an organization decided to take children attending inner city schools and give them a sense of direction, taking them off the street and into a dance studio. The program consisted training in modern, jazz, tap, ballet, ballroom, hip hop, voice, and more. They are called the National Dance Institute (NDI) founded by Jacques d'Amboise of the New York City Ballet. His love for the arts continued to grow as he not only continued his education at NDI, but also attended the theatre department of LaGuardia H.S. for the Performing Arts. He went on to graduate from S.U.N.Y. New Paltz with a B.A. in both technical and performance theatre, as well as a half a year of post graduate work at the acclaimed Moscow Art Theater. Performing has always been at the forefront of Steven's life. He has had the opportunity to work alongside many actors, artists, choreographers, and dancers alike, all of whom have inspired him and the lives of others. Some of his credits include projects for Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Nelly Furtado, Jamie-Lynn, and many others. He has done commercials for Pepsi (Vanilla) and iPod, and was in the off-Broadway production of The Harlequin Studies, starring Bill Irwin. He recently came off tour with Cirque Du Soleil's production of Banana Shpeel. Steven's passion for expression will endure through all trials of life, which he hopes to express within his own art. He considers a classroom full of students as a canvas, and a teacher as its painter. Seize every moment. Continue to love! Never regret; always accept! Enjoy what you have when you have it because you may just lose it. Agape - Aheb
