Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

Sergey has been my friend for many years, and the last 5 years i have gained a lot of weight and was really unmotivated to go to the gym or do anything. Sergey pushed me to go in the gym around 3 times a week and spend 2 hours on doing weight lifting and some cardio, in the past year i have lost around 100 pounds. I was about 380+ pounds, now im down to about 275-280 and still going down since he put my mind to healthy lifestyle and being active. I would recommend this teacher to anyone thats in need of learning any craft that he offers or just someone looking to get in shape. He is a master and best at what he does

Sergey teaches my 10 y.o. son and I must say I am very happy we are doing it. He is strict but patient and very determined to give the best to the student. After just two sessions, my son can already do some of the basic moves. What I also like is that Sergey puts an emphasis on how important it is to practice, be persistent, disciplined, etc. I think it is very helpful for the boy to hear it from a person who mastered the dance.

this guy is amazing. He has helped me so much with my calisthenic work. Before training with him I had been trying to learn a human flag for years. Literally within the first class he taught me the technique to do it, and I got my first flag within a week. He is extremely knowledgable, and in great shape. Excellent instructor, i highly recommend him to anyone trying to get fit, workout, or just be in better shape. A++++

My First lesson with Sergey was kind of sad at what I could do. My pushups to pull ups were about 3-4 at a time. Threw Sergey training I have been gaining more and more confidence/power over my own body. Lifting ones own weight is not easy. But thanks Sergey after month and half of training and doing what he asks. I am now able to do 11 pull ups, over 200 push ups and allot other crazy things that helping me gain a better core for what I need at Dancing/Life.
