Testimonials

I've been taking dance lessons from Simone for nine years, and I continue to love each and every one of my lessons! She is an excellent instructor and makes learning how to dance a truly wonderful experience. I first got hooked during one of Simone's group classes nearly a decade ago. She was unlike any of the other instructors I had come across previously: she is a true professional, extremely knowledgable, enthusiastic, patient, and a stickler for proper form.  


Simone's passion for dancing and teaching is unparalleled. I've taken a wide variety of dance classes with her, from group classes to private lessons, from the Waltz to the Hustle, and in every class Simone is there with 100% of her attention, enthusiasm, and energy.

She devotes so much of herself to her classes and lessons and she really wants you to succeed as a student of dance whether you are taking private lessons or a group class. She is always ready to find new ways to explain dance concepts and patterns and won't give up until you understand or learn a certain idea or concept or pattern fully. 


Simone is a true gem of an instructor and you are in excellent care when you take dance lessons with her!

I started attending group dance classes with Dance Together NYC about four years ago, with absolutely zero dance experience under my belt.  In fact, I had a deep seated fear of dancing in public. I decided to give it a try because I was looking for a new way to get some exercise that would also allow me to meet people.  Well, clearly classes are fantastic, since I'm still going 4 years later.  


Simone has expertise not only in dance, but in education.  She knows how to break down the steps so that even complete newbies can pick them up (unlike other dance teachers I've observed, who merely demonstrate and expect you to know how to do it on your own by just watching).  


I enjoyed the classes so much that I now take private lessons with Simone.  I'm now confident enough in my dancing abilities that I regularly attend dance parties around the city.  If you're even just considering learning to dance give Simone's classes a try - I guarantee she will have you dancing in no time!

My wife and I have been taking a once-weekly "couples class" from Simone for over a year now, and we absolutely love it.  We signed up on a lark--and with absolutely no dancing experience--thinking it would a fun diversion from our typical weeknight activities. 


We didn't know what to expect, and were both nervous at the beginning that the classes would be awkward and embarrassing. But after the first 10 minutes of the first class, all of our worries went out the door, and we've been coming back almost every week ever since.  


Simone is a fabulous teacher.  She is patient, attentive, and thoroughly entertaining, and the hour-long classes just fly by.  Not only that, I can honestly say that we've actually learned how to dance!  


I highly recommend Dance Together NYC for any couple looking for a new activity.  The classes have truly become a highlight of our week!

Have you ever been into a dance class where everybody is having a great time, and where the teacher is so great that she made you do even those moves you thought were impossible? If your answer is no then you haven't tried Simone's class because that is precisely what she does.

She welcome you with a smile and great energy. She walk you thought the steps. She adds some nice music and congratulates every time you do it right. And if you don't, she'll spend some extra time with you to make sure you got it right.

What a great experience it was. Oh, and she had some nice treats for us at the end :)

My suggestion? Try her class sessions now! We are definitely going back!

I initially contacted Dance Together NYC because of the stellar Yelp reviews, and I'm so glad I did!! I have been attending couples dance class taught by Simone for about a year now. 


I started out as a complete beginner, and Simone was fantastic at teaching the basics of swing, rhumba, salsa, and foxtrot - she's very fun and breaks things down in a way that's super easy to follow. 


My family and friends are super impressed with my new dancing skills, and I love continuing to learn from Simone every week! 


- K.L., New York, NY

Simone's classes are so much fun!  I've taken several of them, both group classes and private lessons.  


The group classes are lively as you are interacting with everyone in the room, changing partners. There is constant motion and learning. 


The private classes are really fascinating.  I took one with a partner who never really danced before and Simone made him feel so completely at ease and by the end of the hour, he was twirling me around! So much fun, really!!
