Very Patient

My daughter Maya has trouble focusing, and Sara's patient and fun loving attitude kept Maya's attention. Sara was very professional. I would truly recommend her teaching ability to anyone interested in learning to sing.

Hello, welcome to my profile and thank you for taking the time to check it out. I am happy to introduce myself to you and share that teaching the performing arts is one of the greatest joys of my life.

Madia is by far the very best dance instructor you could find! I have decided to hire her to teach my daughter online since we live in such a rural area. She did such an amazing job! She gave great feedback and was firm with my daughter while still being fun to work with. I would work with her again!

Tibor is a great dancer and a great teacher. My biggest issue was the lack of communication and the inability to keep a consistent schedule. I needed this dance for a surprise for my wedding reception and some weeks we wouldn't meet at all and sometimes we would only meet once even though we were scheduled for 3 times. Unfortunately I had to decide against the dance because as time wound down, he was less and less available and no progress was being made.

Tibor is an amazing dancer and an amazing teacher. I can't begin to say how grateful I am that I found him on Take Lessons. I have been trying to learn Bachata for several months, and have taken private lessons from several different teachers, but none of these other teachers come close to being as good as Tibor. He breaks down the moves in a way that makes them understandable. I have made real progress thanks to Tibor and give him the highest possible recommendation!

Choreography · In studio
I'm an advanced Hip-Hop Dancer wanted to learn different Streetdance styles, so I looked for somebody who is proficient teaching various street-dance styles like Locking, Popping, Krump, New Jack Swing, Waacking etc.. I gave Tibor a shot, because he got intensively trained with one of the progenitors of Street-Dance, called Shabba Doo (Star of the movies Breakin', Original Locker, Soul Train Gang Member...). I was surprised that Tibor was able to teach me a lot I didn't know, even as an advanced Choreography Dancer. I learned a lot about the history of street-dance and the history of the steps. The technique he learned in all these styles are from the Original Generation, meaning that he learned from the creators of street-dance. I can just recommend him to anybody out there who wants to learn more about real street-dance!
