Nick is a wonderful dance instructor! He creates an inviting atmosphere for any level of dancer. I truly appreciate how he listens to his clients, while still pushing them, to give them the best possible dance lesson each session. Also, these are the most affordable private dance lessons I've seen in NYC! It's amazing to work with a pro at an attainable price. His lessons are the highlight of my week!

I had an amazing experience working with Nick as my Ballroom teacher! He's a fantastic teacher, very patient, makes every lesson fun, and really caters the lesson to you, your goals, and your level. I came in with some Ballroom experience, but you can come in with zero experience too. I wanted to improve my salsa and bachata skills and I now feel so much more confident in those dances! I recently went to a bachata/salsa social and could finally keep up as a follower on the dance-floor. It felt amazing and it's all thanks to Nick! I would highly recommend his classes to anyone who loves to dance and is looking to learn, no matter what level :)

Thank you so much Sonia! I have really enjoyed teaching with you! Hearing that your last social dancing experience was made better by the time spent learning and practicing on my lessons is the best compliment I could receive. I am so proud of the progress you have made and you did it in such a short amount of time! So impressed! Always keep dancing! Nick.

I started with zero experience and had an awesome experience learning how to dance salsa bachata and merengue with Nick. He is very patient, encouraging and super easy to communicate with. He is a fantastic instructor and always brings positive energy to the class. Thanks to him, I got to enjoy dancing as a absolute beginner. High recommended!

I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor to introduce me to the world of ballroom dance! Nick is not only an amazing dancer, but he is an extremely skilled teacher. I’ve worked with other dancers, but none have been able to articulate and truly breakdown every possible aspect in all ballroom dances. Every time I work with him I am completely saturated with knowledge and have the most fun during my training sessions. Whether you want ballroom to be a casual hobby or looking to take it to the next level for serious competitions and the ProAm experience, then the Ballroom Guy is your guy ;)

Thank you so much Tatiana! It’s so special to me that I was the first to introduce you to the world of ballroom. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. Your thirst for knowledge, improvement, and fun is so fulfilling to me as an instructor and a dancer. Big things await for you! Love the pictures by the way! I will always treasure our Joker/Harley routine. 🃏I can’t wait for what’s next! 🥳
