It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

Great 1st lesson! Looking forward to continuing and learning more

"I love Denise! Denise is patient and kind which is wonderful as a teacher. She creates a safe space, but she's also constructive with her criticisms and how to improve. She's also nurturing which I think is an excellent quality to have as a dance teacher as she's respectful of all dancers of other levels/experience. She loves to fun during class too! I love attending class because not only do I learn how to become a better dancer, but she makes it fun too."

"Jenny to the Rescue!

My daughter's wedding was weeks away, and I had never been able to dance a step. For that important occasion, however, I wanted to be able to at least survive a little waltz. My daughter and I selected a short piece, connected with Jenny, and she took it from there. In three lessons, she taught us the basics, provided some great pointers, a little choreography, and even taught us a few impressive moves to throw into the mix. The results exceeded everyone's expectations, and brought not only resounding applause at the reception, but also sentimental tears to many eyes. With Jenny's help, I came further in dancing than ever before in such short time in any subject.

An extremely patient, caring, and capable instructor, Jenny always listens carefully to your questions and ideas. Then, it's fascinating to watch her pause a moment, process the issue, and come back with a solution that's exactly right. Without her, a great moment and memory for my daughter and me might never have happened."

"Ra was very professional, welcoming and well knowledgeable to say the least. For a beginner such as myself with no prior experience, not once did I feel left out or that I couldn't catch up to her and it was all due to Ra being willing to not only revisit the steps but to do it all over again if necessary. Ra does not only engage and interacts with you very well, but she makes certain that you are also having fun all while learning. In conclusion, I highly recommend Ra if you are looking to get your Latin groove on!"

"Beyond expectations

From our first phone call, Gina became invested in my dance journey. From modern dance, to ballet and contemporary, Gina has guided me into a new world of performance and dance. Outside of our scheduled lessons, we are loosely collaborating on a creative project - something I thought was years away until I met Gina. She taught me tactical dance fundamentals while also helping me navigate the dance and theater scene in NYC. (with which she is very connected) The best thing for me was her flexibility with the learning process. She encourages everyone to make their own journey, never forcing too much structure but always being reliable. I look forward to continuing this journey. Thank you!"
