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.
We highly recommend Arati if you're thinking of dance lessons. We are working with Arati for our First Dance. Arati is such a sweetheart, and has a bubbly personality that can make anyone smile. She's been extremely patient, and great to work with for first-timers like us. Even my fiancé, who was lukewarm about taking lessons, really enjoyed the classes!
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 was originally my trainer and when I wanted to get into swing dance she was the obvious choice. She demystified the steps, corrected my form and gave me all the necessary tools for getting out on the dance floor. I am more than satisfied, she is an enthusiastic, supportive, precise professional with an encyclopedic knowledge of her craft and able to prevent my mistakes before I make them!
My boyfriend and I took swing dancing lessons from Jes. To say that we are klutzy would be an understatement. However, Jes was always so patient and made the dancing so much fun. My boyfriend was pretty reluctant about it until he met Jes and then he was on board. Jes was always so sweet and remembered what we had told her on previous visits. She's also an AMAZING dancer and I'm always so impressed by her skills.
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!

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!).
Michele is a great teacher who not only improved my dance skills, but my golf game got better with my increased flexibility as well.
My new home away from home! I also love the fact that this studio offers other classes, such as belly dancing, zumba, yoga, karate, and more. Truly something for everyone.
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 had always wanted to try Bellydancing so I gathered some friends and was lucky enough to find a professional like Fernanda. Her warm, friendly personality made us feel welcome . We weren’t sure what to expect, and were pleased that with Fernanda’s patients, we were actually able to do a lot of the dance moves! She also demonstrated many styles of Bellydancing and told us some of the history. We were also thrilled when she showed us some of the beautiful costumes she gets to wear for her worldwide tours! I highly recommend taking lessons from the amazing, talented Fernanda!
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.
Restie Dantis is a dance teacher that makes you feel totally confident that you can become a competent ballroom dancer. My husband Tony and I have taken many lessons with Restie and look forward to taking many more in the future. Another couple at the dance studio who was being taught by another teacher always appeared stiff and uncomfortable when dancing. Restie later took over their teaching when the other teacher became unavailable and I must say that Tony and I were utterly amazed at how good they had become! We've had lessons from many other professional ballroom dancers but never felt comfortable taking what we learned to ballroom socials. With Restie, doing ballroom at a social dance became fun!
Stephen has been a great teacher! He is an awesome dancer and has an awesome personality. I have only had a few lessons so far, but I can already tell that I am improving and I am more conscious of my posture and lines. Stephen is pretty punctual, and professional for sure. Five stars.
