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.

Arati is such an excellent teacher. My fiancée and I decided to take up pre wedding dance lessons and to our pleasant surprise we found Arati. She excellent at breaking down the steps and most importantly makes the lessons fun. It was absolutely amazing to see how much fun we had in just one hour! Can't wait for the next lesson : )

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. : )

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 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!

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 needed a dance instructor that was able to work with us around our tight schedules & someone who was also affordable. Ellis Roderick met all of our needs and went above and beyond what we ever expected. He choreographed a unique, amazing wedding dance routine for us and taught us “how” to dance like we were on dancing with the stars. He was fun, experienced, encouraging, professional, and awesome! He even invited us to join his adult competition dance team by the end of our lessons. We would definitely recommend anyone who wants to have fun and learn how to dance...go to Ellis!!

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!).

About

I am a Jersey City based hip-hop dancer and choreographer. I have been dancing since middle school. Since then, dancing became an amazing way for emotional expression and exercise for me. I am a choreographer of my own dance crew Movementum and perform around my local area. I yearn to share hip-hop dancing and choreography to others in order to spread the virtues of discipline, organization, creativity, and goal management.

About

I am a ballroom and Latin dance teacher. I have been competing in ballroom and Latin dance throughout the US for more than 12 years. World-renowned Blackpool finalists -- Giampiero Giannico, Paul Richardson, Andrew Phillip, and Olga Rodianova -- and dance superstars, Igor Litvinov and Gary and Rita Gekhman (their Robot Showdance was featured in "Dancing with the Stars") are among the many great teachers I have had. I am also a writer of dance and fitness articles as a columnist for an Internet magazine.
