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 wife and I decided to take up dance lessons with Arati for our first dance together at our reception, and we were so glad we did. She was so easy to work with, professional, and made our classes fun and memorable. I would highly recommend her for any of your dance and choreography needs. -Kevin
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!
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!
Ive had many dance teachers in my life time, all have been constructive and great but none have ever really touched my life in a way that opened my eyes to the world. Then I met Aliya and everything changed! She pushed me to my full potential! She made me love dance more than i already had, and i never knew that was possible! I wish she was still in LA teaching her classes because i would be taking them consistently. You would be a fool not to work with her. She doesn't just teach dance, she teaches you how to LIVE!
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.
We have been dancing at the Academy for the past two months. Our instructor Alex is very knowledgeable about a variety of fdance and shown great patience in teaching us to dance. As we learn we are acquiring confidence and more importantly we enjoy learning and practicing at home.
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!
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!).
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.
I've been taking dance lessons from Alexei for many years and find that each year gets more interesting in what I am able to achieve. He is the most patient, understanding and talented instructor I could hope to find. Although I don't take lessons from Lola, I can attest to her talent and patience also. Further, they are both genuinely interested in their students and the progress they make. I consider them super!
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.
Travis is a true teacher: Passionate, patient and fun! Travis conducted a class of 50 Honors students at my school, teaching them 5 different dances in a two-hour period. What was remarkable was that none of the students had ever danced before, and they came to the event terrified. Within 20 minutes, he had the students engaged and enjoying themselves ... By the end of the evening, they were dancing confidently, having the best time, and eager to know when he could come back! What's unique about Travis' style is he incorporates dance history into your lesson, making for a truly engaging experience. Cannot recommend him highly enough! Hire him to chereograph your wedding dance for a truly magical memory!
Kelsey is so much fun. She's makes learning very easy. She has awesome energy and loves to keep it simple and professional. Would recommend her to anyone intersected in learning any type of dancing.
