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 fiancée and I took dance lessons with Arati for our wedding. She choreographed a great dance to our song and made learning the steps really easy and fun. We'd highly recommend working with her to learn your first dance!
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
My friend and I have a strong passion for dance and wanted to exceed our level of dance and express it wherever we go. We had our first dance lesson with Miss Tonisha and was impressed in how much we learned in such a short period of time; we learned a mix of hip hop, Latin and modern dance. We loved her passion and enthusiasm in empowering women and making them come alive and strive through dance. She was so much fun to be around and personable, and her professionalism was impeccable. ~ Andrea
I loved working with Irina.She is very professional,taught me dances that I was not familiar with and had improved my confidence while I learnt new dances having fun at the same time.The quality of her teaching was excellent and I highly recommend her to everyone who is new to Latin/dances
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.
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!
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!
The introductory lesson was awesome. After lots of looking, I've found my pplace for dance lessons.
George is fantastic! A very kind and communicative person. Great professional! Thanks a lot for dancing lesson! We enjoyed a lot!
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.
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!).
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!
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.
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.
