Attended: Hip Hop Basics

Teacher had some good moves, but given that this is an absolute beginner's course, he did not really break down the moves very much at all. It was too faced paced for a beginner. Almost everyone else in the class seemed to have been doing it for months and knew the moves and the routine. I've done lots of dance classes at other schools, and know the drill, you have to practice and practice.. but other teachers take the time to break down the moves and components very slowly. This one didn't. Also midway through the class someone came in and started video recording! The class is advertised as a beginner's class and a safe, friendly environment. Well I really don't think someone video recording me is appropriate at all. I did not give my consent to be recorded and found it extremely inappropriate!


Attended: Hip Hop Basics

The class size was too big for the space, the check-in person was unwelcoming, and the instructor wasn't great. I don't think I'd go back. :(

Class was very crowded, not enough room to move without bumping into another student. apparently there is no limit to the number of students admitted to a class.

There was too many ppl in one class so it's harder to focus on picking up the moves the first but it was a good workout

Attended: Hip Hop Basics

great instructor and dance moves, but a bit too crowded


Attended: Hip Hop Basics

my first time in this class and I hated it , I could barely understand the instructor. He was very much into himself and really didn't take and time to help anyone with moves that they found hard. Trying to teach a whole routine in 1 hour was also a fail. I've taken dance classes before where the instructor actually worked with people, this instructor just yelled in an incomprehensible accent. I won't be wasting my money again!


Attended: Hip Hop Basics

This class was a lot of fun. It was my first time taking hip hop. The instructor was great, he went a little fast but he was very funny and made the class really fun. I'll be going back next week.


Attended: Zumba - All Levels

Loved the teacher, the class was so much fun - it was my first Zumba class and it was no problem being a beginner and I left sweating. My only complaint would be that it was super crowded, so some moves were hard to do without running in to others. Would definitely take it again though.


Attended: Summer Sparks: Salsa in the Park

Fun, great instructors, beautiful setting on Pier 63!


Attended: Hip Hop Basics

This class was a ton of fun. The instructor broke down the movements in a comprehensive way and gave us a chance to learn each part before moving on. There was alot of work and alot of laughter, which I see as a successful class. I will absolutely take this instructors class again, and looking forward to exploring other RISE classes and instructors!


Attended: Open Level Belly Dance

Very fun, liked the instructor, although could have learned a longer routine


Attended: Hip Hop Basics

Friendly teachers. A lot of fun. A great workout. Really easy to just jump right in and just start dancing!


Attended: Salsa Basics

The set up of this class was not for me - if you're in doubt of your skills, I'd pass on this class. I didn't find the instructors very helpful and it was too loud for me to hear the instructions a few feet away. We didn't practice quite enough and in the end I didn't really learn it. This class would be okay for those with more confidence in quickly learning the dance. Also - not a 'date night' activity like I thought it would be. It's fun to switch partners a little bit even if you're on a date, but they wanted us to switch with every 5 minutes, so not only were you learning the steps yourself but you had to constantly adjust to someone new. I wouldn't recommend this course for true beginners.
