Introduction: I teach beginner level classes (in Midtown Manhattan) of SALSA-ON-1(LA style, the best style for beginners) ,and absolute-beginner levels of ballroom dances (waltz, rumba, chacha, foxtrot) and other latin dances (bachata,merenge,).I have been doing this for the past over 12 years. I teach ONLY PRIVATE CLASSES, mostly in PAIRS/COUPLES, or if you have a READY GROUP OF YOUR OWN OF 4-18 PEOPLE. I simply LOVE teaching, and specialize in teaching absolute beginners/beginners and try to make them have fun while they are at it. I focus a lot on getting the basics right and work on the leading/following aspect of 'partner dancing' which often gets over-looked in group classes. I love that I have a chance to meet so many new people and get to be a small part of their world! :) Its amazing how many new friends I have made through these dance lessons...the best part ever! :)

Wedding Dance Lessons

Arati was amazing!!! My wife and I had zero experience for our first dance at our wedding, but Arati came up with the perfect choreography for us. She was extremely patient and made us feel comfortable as we learned how to waltz (no easy task!). She communicated with us up until our wedding day and went above and beyond with her advice. The dance went great and we owe it all to her!!

Wedding Dance Lessons

Arati was an amazing dance instructor! My husband and I have 0 formal dance training and wanted to have a dance choreographed for our wedding. Arati made us feel very comfortable. She was energetic and supportive and made the dance classes fun for us. We ended up learning the dance she choreographed for us which went beautifully for the wedding. It was the highlight of our night and definitely surprised our family and friends who had no clue we had taken dance lessons and still a month later talk about how great the dance was. Thank you Arati! We would recommend you to anyone looking for dance classes for their special day!

Learning dance with Arati was fun and efficient. She is incredibly dynamic and also funny and it was a joy to work with her. She choreographed my husband and my first dance at our wedding and taught us the steps. We were able to confidently and beautifully dance it! I highly recommend working with Arati!

My husband and I had so much fun with Arita as a teacher and her dance lessons! She is such a lovely person, a great teacher and is so was accommodating with our busy schedule. What we learned in our classes was invaluable, and it was so fun to use the moves she taught us at the wedding not only during our first dance but with my guests!
