Private Dance Lessons

I have been taking lessons with Jose since August and am having such an extraordinary experience that I must compliment him. I was never able to follow and dance with a man--I decided to take up dance after some personal losses, so after enjoying a dance cruise and taking lessons with a half dozen pros and trying group lessons which I kept missing because of work, I realized I'd never learn without intensive private lessons. This was my first thumbtack experience so was not expecting to find the most brilliant dance teacher on the planet, but I did! I'm dancing 3-6 hours a week with Jose for 2-months now, so can attest that Jose is a very special dancer and person. A few highlights of my experience: 1) Teaching skill. As a dance teacher, Jose has extraordary technical expertise and the ability of a truly great teacher to translate that into true, long-lasting advancement of my skills. I'm learning so much more than steps. It's all about becoming grounded in proper form and technique, so that most steps become almost a natural extension of that, with style as the ever present icing on the cake. Jose and a strong and exacting leader but also so kind-hearted and warm that his corrections and adjustments feel inspiring, not critical. He recognizes every accomplishment and makes every lesson a pleasurable experience. 2) Professionalism. Jose is always punctual, always waiting there for me. He confirms with exact location before every lesson. He takes the responsibility very seriously and provides excellent value for my time and expense. 3) Demeanor. Jose is very fun and uniquely warm but also such a courtly gentleman that dancing closely is very comfortable for a female student. He has this outgoing and charming but also even-keeled and kind personality. He manages to be gentle while exacting which is a unique skill for a teacher. He's so patient and supportive that my own frustration when I repeat my most common mistakes (mostly) melts away. Jose is a wonderful dance teacher and as my mom would say, a true "mensch". He's just a delightful person. I know it's more credible if you add a "lesser strength", but I honestly can't extract a single flaw or disappointment from my experience. Jose has instilled such a love of dance in me, I only wish we could do even more lessons each week!

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.

Jose is such a wonderful teacher! My husband and I have learned SO much already and we’ve only had two lessons! He even traveled to our home in Astoria, which was so helpful for us. His energy is infectious and he shares his knowledge in a quick and applicable way. I am so grateful that he requires continued growth and retention. Anyone who gets to work with him will be extremely happy pleased. We always smile our whole way thru the lessons.

My husband and I wanted to learn Salsa just for the fun of it and I found Jose on this app, I couldn't be happier to have found him. He is an amazing teacher, but more importantly he is a genuine and great guy. He is passionate about what he does, he teaches you and never makes you feel bad for not picking up steps as quickly as you should, he makes it super fun, the hour we are with him goes super quick. He is so personable you almost feel like you have known him your whole life. Jose is super accommodating, he has two locations and always make it easy to switch up the schedule if necessary. He sends me a text a day before every class to make sure we are still on and remind us of the time and location. He has never let us down. I strongly recommend this guy no matter what your reason is for wanting to learn ballroom dance, he is the best. He's got a great sense of humor and makes class super fun while pushing you. He makes the experience personal and not boring.
