Dariusz adapted the lessons to my specific goal and needs, from the very beginning. I had a first introductory salsa lesson and what I need is to learn in a very short time, I was able to understand what to focus on and work on so that the lessons could be as efficient as possible thanks to his observation and his guidance.
Definitely recommended...!!! I have taken 6 beginner salsa classes so far and I can do basics pretty well. Feels great 😄I would definitely continue taking more classes. Classes are every Thursday 7-8pm. The classes are at pace that most people can follow with lots of practice and encouragement from instructor. Arati is a great instructor, very keen on every detail of gesture, timing of movement etc.... People who are in this class are very friendly and easy to dance with. I would definitely recommend anyone to join her class and it's affordable :)
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!!!!
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
I came to Irina with two left feet and a whole lot of trepidation. I had only danced a few times previously, and because I really had no clue what I was doing, I was a bit uncomfortable. Irina helped to change that. In just a handful of lessons, Irina taught me the basic steps, how to lead, and a few showy moves so I can make my date look hot on the dance floor! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to learn to dance, and will be returning myself for salsa lessons! Thank you Irina!
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!
I took a private salsa lesson with Maximo and learned so much! He is a great instructor with a lot a patience and great attention to detail. I look forward to taking more lessons with Maximo to improve my technique and learn more afro cuban movements.
Just had my first session with Paulina this afternoon and can't wait for our next session! She was super patient with me as I am a total beginner in dance! As the session went on, I also found out that she is a personal trainer! We decided that it would be a great idea to combine both so I can learn the flow of my body motion from dancing and also build up muscles from training! I am glad that I took the first step in being active and also found someone like Paulina to get me into shape!
Great salsa lesson with Ekaterina and Armand. Great venue and instruction.
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.
Achiko is a great instructor for beginners. Highly recommend. Prices are reasonable for private lessons.
Even if you cannot dance at all, and you want to learn to tango, this is the place to go. They offer different levels, from beginners to advanced and are always so eager to help you advance. All the instructors are professional, but they make it fun. I always look forward to going, to learning, and to be greeted with such warmth. Carolina, Diego and Juan go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, and part of the tango family. Although it is taking lessons, you go hom feeling that you've had a great night out!
Jiyon is an amazing instructor and a lovely person. I am a beginner who was always interested in ballet. I took some group classes before but I wasn't getting much. I was too beginner and needed more focused attention and extra help. When I started to take private lessons with Jiyon, she was very helpful in explaining very basics of ballet as well as body parts and their functions so I can pose properly. I am liking ballet more than ever and greatly enjoying learning from her. She challenges me each class and I can feel and see that I am improving. I am so thankful for her! I recommend her to people at all levels. She is great!
Ms. Patrice is an excellent teacher. She is patient with beginners and she is encouraging. I came to Ms. Patrice for tap and salsa and I had so much fun! She is an outstanding teacher.
I met Arturo at Swing 46 when I was celebrating a friend's 40th birthday. Arturo taught the beginner dance lesson and was very concise with his instructions and ability to make the patrons comfortable both with the lesson and with their own abilties. I have since taken lessons with Arturo and he is very patient with his teaching and guidance. He is a good lead without being overbearing and my experience when dancing with him is always positive.
Very fun! Signed up for social salsa dance package before w/ Chris R and Chris Porter. So happy to have found them again by this app!
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 Elisa. So far I've attended a few private ballet dance lessons with Elisa since this spring and found her 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. I've already learned so much technical terms and improved my overall body tone and posture. Elisa is one of the most patient, well-trained, highly skilled, reliable, and experienced ballet instructor in the NYC Area. Not only does she offer extremely competitive rates, but she is also very accommodating and her schedule is fairly open and flexible. As aforementioned, I've taken privates and group classes elsewhere, but they pale in comparison to Elisa. Elisa carries a commendable etiquette and a soothing personality; she doesn't rush or blaze through the techniques with frustration and arrogance as others have with me. So all in all, I recommend seeing Elisa whether you are an absolute beginner, like me, or a professional dancer. Keep up the good work Elisa! Best, SC.
I am a New York based dancer previously trained at Broadway Dance Center. I'm seeking a route in the professional dance industry but my dream has always been to teach others hip-hop and contemporary movement. I'm eager to work with anyone who is willing to learn a few steps, some confidence, and the art of everything dance. I am also TESOL/TESL/TEFL certified to teach ESL students!
I have a passion for dance, and I would love to spread my love for it to others. I have been dancing salsa for 5 years now. I am part of a team where we travel and perform and compete. I have choreographed sweet 16 dances and school performances before. I am also experienced in modern, African-Caribbean, contemporary and jazz.
