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.
My fiancée and I took dance lessons with Arati for our wedding. She choreographed a great dance to our song and made learning the steps really easy and fun. We'd highly recommend working with her to learn your first dance!
I took Latin Dance lessons with Linda in New York and found her to be a fantastic teacher: very patient, highly knowledgable, and able to explain complex dances in a simple way
Jose Solano is an amazing ballroom dancer & dance instructor. Both his talent & passion for dance shine through in his effervescent personality ~~ one cannot help but be swept away in the spirit & joy of the dance! Jose excels in technique & styling, and he is a kind, patient and understanding mentor ~~ you will discover aspects of yourself you never knew! So much fun!!
Although we had just a short time to prepare for our event, Olga taught us the basics of ballroom dancing in no time and we had a lot of fun. Yesterday at the ball we owned the dancefloor;-) We can totally recommend Olga!
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
Irina is an amazing instructor who was able to work well with a group! She was very communicative and flexible in our planning stages and brought lots of fun to our salsa class. I would absolutely recommend Irina (MAP 2 Rhythm) for your dance instruction needs. I know I will be reaching out to Irina in the future!
With a month left to our wedding day, we were extremely lucky to able to find Shimkiri, who is professional, friendly and empathetic with our situation. After meeting her on the first day, we knew we were in good hands. We wanted a fun and upbeat dance for our wedding and Shimkiri was able to choreograph an excellent dance routine for us in less than a month. Under her watchful eye, we learned and practiced several times a week at the Hoboken and Manhattan dance studios. She is flexible, always able to squeeze us into her schedule, while we worked full time. She was attentive to our movements, saw what worked and what did not. If we have difficulties with certain dance moves she would go above and beyond to help us nail it. By the end of the wedding night, everyone demanded an encore. We were so pleased with Shimkiri that we continued to take ballroom dancing lessons from her.
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!
Liz Peterson is truly the best dance teacher my husband and I have had--and we've taken ballroom/latin dance quite a number of times. She is a GREAT communicator and demonstrator, a great dancer, steeped in knowledge of the dances and their history and culture, and a wonderfully warm, caring and funny human being. And I know that everyone else in the classes we've taken with her has felt the same way. Can't recommend her highly enough.
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!
George is fantastic! A very kind and communicative person. Great professional! Thanks a lot for dancing lesson! We enjoyed a lot!
We came to this school to learn salsa we signed up for one of there programs and the experience we have gotten has been amazing.We now can dance not only salsa but four other dances as well.
I have taken Latin Ballroom classes with Ernesto, and he is an excellent teacher, able to clearly explain leader and follower skills, and the proper physical technique for executing the most complicated moves (whether in social or competitive styles of dance). He is always calm and fun in his explanations. As a dance artist, he is a thrill to watch, whether in Modern dance pieces, or Ballroom Latin showpieces, with a strong emotional expression of the music and choreography, and a deep connection to his partners that is mesmerizing.
I've been taking lessons on and off from Michele since 1996. She really knows how to teach her students so they understand. I really love learning to dance from her!
The instructor was patient and clearly explained the rationale for every step. I was very pleased that he took the time to make sure I understood how to dance the basic steps.
Well I own a restaurant and I hired a lot of belly dancers to dance in my place and Fernanda is simply the best. Hire her, you won’t be disappointed, she is the real deal.
We absolutely loved working with Luna Dance Company to choreograph both an introductory and first dance for our wedding. Imani was so patient and kind and is such a talented dance instructor. She understood the type of dance we wanted from the beginning and was able to teach us the steps in only a few short weeks. Our dance is amazing and we can’t wait to share it with our wedding guests next week. We highly recommend this company especially for any beginners! Thank you both so much for everything!!
Olga is a great instructor, down-to-earth, funny, willing to spend time developing your inner dancer!! Each lesson will incorporate technique and routine steps. You will leave confident and ready to perform!!
We took 8 (or so) lessons in preparation for our wedding. Neither of us had ever ballroom danced before... and we had one month until the wedding. Natalie and Tony were AMAZING. Sooooooo nice and friendly - did not making dancing intimidating. And they whipped us into shape in time for a perfect wedding dance. I would 100% recommend Fred Astair Dance Studio of Morristown to anyone looking to learn to dance - including engaged couples preparing for their wedding. We set aside some money in our budget for this and I do not regret it one bit - it was easily one of my favorite parts of the night!
She is awesome! I hired her to make me presentable (dance wise) for my daughters wedding. Focused on the father daughter dance and swing. Extremly skilled,professional, patient and great personality.
