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 fiancee and I sought out dance lessons for our wedding first dance -- three weeks from the big day. To make things more difficult, our song was an aggressive EDM song that had multiple different tempos. Arati was able to choreograph and teach us two different styles (waltz, salsa at the drop) in 4 sessions. We are so excited! THANK YOU for a wonderful experience!

Jose Is a great instructor and person. After only a few lessons I have learned a lot especially that I do not have two left feet. With Jose's encouragement and patience I am looking forward to learning a lot more.

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

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!

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!

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!

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!).

Aasiyah is incredibly beautiful and elegant! She is able to capture the true essence of Egyptian dance, mesmerizing audiences and providing an unforgettable experience for guests. As a teacher, Aasiyah is incredibly knowledgeable not only in dance technique, but in music and culture as well. She is very patient with students, while continuing to challenge them to their maximum potential. I have been her regular student for over 2 years now and I look forward to every class!

They were wonderful working with us and it's obvious they are passionate and know what they are talking about. We had tried a commercial danced studio and had an awful experience being overcharged and feeling like we were being sold more than being taught to dance. While we aren't destined to be pro dancers, we will feel comfortable dancing to our first dance song for our wedding :)

We absolutely loved working with Luna Dance Company to choreograph both an introductory and first dance for our wedding. Imani was so patient and kind and is such a talented dance instructor. She understood the type of dance we wanted from the beginning and was able to teach us the steps in only a few short weeks. Our dance is amazing and we can’t wait to share it with our wedding guests next week. We highly recommend this company especially for any beginners! Thank you both so much for everything!!

We took 8 (or so) lessons in preparation for our wedding. Neither of us had ever ballroom danced before... and we had one month until the wedding. Natalie and Tony were AMAZING. Sooooooo nice and friendly - did not making dancing intimidating. And they whipped us into shape in time for a perfect wedding dance. I would 100% recommend Fred Astair Dance Studio of Morristown to anyone looking to learn to dance - including engaged couples preparing for their wedding. We set aside some money in our budget for this and I do not regret it one bit - it was easily one of my favorite parts of the night!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
