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.

Arati taught my husband and I basic Salsa steps to Bollywood tunes. We wanted to do a fusion performance for my brothers wedding in India, and asked her to do private classes with us. Not only did we have oh-so-much fun while prepping for it, Arati made the steps easy to follow and broke down each part so two-left-feet people like us could end up looking like novices on stage. We left with a applauding crowd, a bag of memories and a new friend! Highly recommend trying her classes in NYC or hiring her for a private dance lesson.

Irina is a true pro, we highly recommend her services! We signed up a few wks before our wedding date looking to learn more abt dancing as a couple, concentrating on Latin music. Irina is warm, patient, understanding and does a great job verbally, and of course physically, teaching the art of dance. She was impressively able to jump back and forth btwn teaching the male vs female roles in merengue, salsa, and bachata, so that my husband and I were able to equally learn and understand consistently throughout the process. Irina was always on time and disciplined with keeping her and our schedule on track. She was even awesome enough to let us bring our dog to lessons and would always kindly remember to bring treats for him. We were super grateful for Irina’s professionalism and will continue to work with her even after our wedding Bc the dance lessons are a great way to spend date nights!

Olga was awesome to work with - my husband and I wanted to get some lessons for our first dance at our wedding and we're SO happy we found her. She knew exactly what style to do once she heard our song, and choreographed the whole thing for us from start to finish. Within the first lesson, she knew exactly what she wanted to teach us and have us do. And to top it off, she was so fun to work with! I think she probably had us laughing more times than not throughout our lessons - we highly recommend her!!!!

JesAnn is a tar combination of great dancer, patient instructor, and articulate teacher. I've had lessons with people who can dance but aren't great teachers - Jes is both! Ye, she will push you, but in a good way and will make sure you have fun along the way. After having worked with her for several years, I can confidently say that it doesn't matter if you have two left feet, or you been dancing for years, she can help you!

My daughter has great experiences working Brenda and loves to work with her! Brenda has been in ballet business for many years and has experiences. She can customize and indivisualize the lessons based on the level. My daughter has developed and refined many skills since working with Brenda. We highly recommend Brenda for ballet private lessons!!

My experience with Broadway Bound was exceptional. The training in dance - voice lessons and the “Workshop” program were intense in the best of ways. I learned what it takes to be a true triple threat, and I also gained a ton of confidence by the classes provided by Broadway Bound. Not only did I gain experience is the artistic world, I also gained a second family. The love, friendship and praise for one another was in all ways a “dream come true”. I still have many best friends from Broadway Bound today. I am now a professional dancer at The Metropolitan Opera ( second season ) and I have performed in 6 professional productions of “West Side Story” where I played Chino / Sharks, toured the USA in Chicago the Musical with Christie Brinkley, Brandy, Jerry Springer, Jennifer Nettles and more stars, one Off-Broadway credit and a list of professional productions including Mamma Mia, Sweet Charity, and Man of La Mancha to name a few. This is possible because of the strong training I gained while attending Broadway Bound. The hard work paid off and is still paying off. Thank you Broadway Bound from the bottom of my heart. When you attend Broadway Bound , please enjoy every single second and have fun!

Candice was amazing. She came up with a super fun routine for us to use with our first dance. Her high level of energy kept us going late into the evening. I would highly recommend Candice to anyone.

Great Latin ballroom teacher. My style, grace and beautiful execution of feet and legs improved greatly under her coaching. If I still lived in NY I would be going to have lessons with her. She is very focused on improving her students dancing skills and making it a lot of fun in the process.

Andrianna was our dance instructor for salsa lessons and the hustle. She is a very patient person, especially when your husband had two left feet. When we decided to choreograph a dance for our wedding, she easily transitioned us into swing with a bit of hustle in the middle. It's great taking classes with her as she knows when to step in and take the lead, pretty much to quell any arguments. And her choreography was so fun! Resort said it was the best dance they'd seen! She was even there to rehearse with us. I cannot recommend her enough! Amazing ...

I took dance lessons with Ashleigh and they were fun! She's a great technical dancer. She worked hard to help me improve my salsa and swing dancing and really emphasized the basics and connection. She's great to work with for people first starting to dance as well as more seasoned dancers looking to take their dancing skills to higher levels. Ashleigh has danced her whole life, with tons of experience, and knows many styles of dancing that comes from a lifetime of learning. If you are a wedding couple, I have no doubt that she can help you choreograph a routine that will fit your style and comfort level. You will be in great hands with her!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do dance lessons cost?

Adults who want to learn to dance, whether to prepare for a wedding or to meet new people, often enjoy taking dance lessons from an experienced dance instructor. Instructors may offer classes one-on-one to individual students or couples, or to small groups. The national average cost for a dance instructor ranges from $30 to $50. Some studios offer a discounted introductory lessons or group lessons, as well as package deals that are more affordable than paying for individual lessons. Some dance instructors will travel to the student’s home, which usually costs more, while others hold small-group sessions in their studios. If you choose a small-group class, expect to pay less than for individual dance lessons.
