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!

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

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!

Jose Is a great instructor and person. After only a few lessons I have learned a lot especially that I do not have two left feet. With Jose's encouragement and patience I am looking forward to learning a lot more.

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 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.

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 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!

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!).

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.

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!

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!
