I have been taking Latin dance lessons at George’s studio for a couple of years now. George is an exceptional teacher. He puts much attention into improving your technique, immediately perceives the reasons his students are having difficulty executing any dance moves and patiently demonstrates the correct steps and body positioning until his students grasp the lesson. George gives his pupils personal attention and he and he makes each class enjoyable too. Take dance lessons under George’s tutelage and you will learn proper dance techniques, get some healthy exercise, de-stress and have fun all at the same time!

My wife and I have been attending individual dance lessons with George since spring 2019. We are very happy we started with George. We are 60 y.o dance novices. George is an excellent teacher, uses good humour to lighten up the classes and adjusts his teaching to the ability and level of the student. Provides encouragement and opportunities to mingle with other couples at a similar level to push one out of the comfort zone just enough to progress. We enjoy the classes, it is a great break from the routine. Thank you, George!

Thank you George for the fantastic dance classes. We had our custom dance routine choreographed and wowed all our guests. The in-law parents joined in on the classes as well.

Now dance class is an activity both my wife and myself enjoy as a fantastic workout. Group classes are always a blast!


What an incredible and fun time! After taking a dive and finally deciding on taking dance lessons, I found George to be a kind and sweet teacher. For anyone considering taking lessons, I would highly recommend coming here!

Excellent instruction from a knowledgeable teacher. We consulted George for our daughter’s wedding 7 years ago. He provided the perfect choreography for the father/daughter dance. We have continued to take lessons from him ever since.

George is a highly skilled dance instructor, very intuitive, with positive energy and a great personality. Dancing with him offered me the chance to improve on dance skills and technique, posture and fitness level, leadership/soft skills and confidence. I would say that he is different than other instructors due to his capacity to team up with his students to help identify their unique opportunities and challenge them to reach them. Highly recommended !!!!

“After a few months of lessons with George, both group and private, not only has my dancing drastically improved but so has my posture and knowledge of dance as a whole. As a beginner, George has been extremely patient with me and makes learning the technical components just as enjoyable as the steps themselves.

He has a unique ability to convey his knowledge of dance in a way that’s understandable to a beginner like me. His energy and passion for teaching dance shine through with every lesson, it’s so great to have a teacher who really enjoys what they do – and based on my experience with other instructors, I can say that George is most certainly the best dance teacher I’ve had!”

“George is a wonderful dance teacher. Not only is he an expert at all aspects of ballroom dancing, but he is also tremendous fun to work with. He makes every lesson a happy and fun experience…. and he taught me to dance, which was a major achievement. George is dedicated, personable and enthusiastic. I consider myself lucky to have found such a dance teacher.”

George is able to teach both of our levels simultaneously so that neither of us is bored or overwhelmed. I was surprised at how quickly we started learning and how much we’ve learned so far. I would highly recommend learning ballroom and there’s no better teacher than George.”

George is consistent and persistent to teach you the right way. He has a long-term vision with his teaching style and not until later do you realize how pieces of the dance puzzle come in together. He is passionate and very patient, making him a great teacher especially for beginners who have multiple challenges on the dance floor. His desire to teach is expressed in each dance session. Our confidence and knowledge have increased tremendously since we have started to practice with George.

review from Rebecca

I have been taking classes with George for over 10 years. He is a gifted dancer and teacher which is a wonderful combination. He has brought much knowledge, discipline, fun and joy to my life.

George is awesome. My girlfriend and I have been going to him for almost a year now and we have grown to love ballroom dancing and his way of teaching more and more. We were brand new to this type of thing and George was exactly what we needed. His patience, flexible schedule, skill, and sense of humor all combine to make an experience worth talking about with friends and family when the lesson is done. Enough said. We are extremely happy with his services and our progress.

A++ experience ballroom dancing. George mixes his “down to earth” character with excellent teaching techniques to provide the most amazing experience and results in our dancing. My boyfriend and I love him!

“George excelled in his dance instruction. He had a lot of patience for myself who had never tried to dance before. His instruction was interesting and memorable. He has my highest recommendation”

“My wife and I chose George to teach us to dance a special dance for our Silver Wedding Anniversary. George is a fantastic teacher and has shown immense patience with both my wife and I. He is knowledgeable and can work with anyone I feel since he works with us! More importantly, he is very personable and has a great appreciation of what skills we have and don’t have. lol!
We love his teaching so much that I am sure we are going to continue even after our special occasion. Our dance is looking great!!!
Thank you George. You are spectacular!!”

“I have been taking individual dance classes with George for the past 8 years. George is a knowledgeable, professional, inspiring dancer and teacher. George has also given lessons to my husband and me and we have been asked if we are dance instructors when seen on a dance floor. All I can say is that we owe it all to George. He cares for his students and their progress and makes their classes fun while learning. Thanks George for a wonderful experience.”

“George is a delightful and committed teacher. His ability to frame his instruction to fit our learning styles is unparalleled. We are not only learning to dance, we are learning to dance well. He brings expertise and pride to each lesson. That is what we are learning from him!”

“I have taken dance lessons with George every week for the past four years. When I started I didn’t know a Foxtrot from a Tango, a Salsa from a Samba and now I feel like I could enter “Dancing with the Stars”. Preferably with George as my partner.  George makes learning how to dance very enjoyable and creates an environment where anyone can flourish!”

“I started dancing with George a year ago and the only thing I am upset about is that I didn’t know about him earlier. He is an amazing teacher: kind, patient, and attentive. I have a very stressful job and dancing with George helps me relax while at the same time providing a great workout. The hour I spend with him always seems to fly by. Thanks George, I will be your client for life.”

“George is a very professional dance expert who is very knowledgeable in his field of work. He is always patient with his students which helps them perfect not only the dance but also their techniques. He works well with all different kinds of students and is willing to work one on one with students who are struggling to perfect the dance. George has inspired me to become a ballroom and Latin fanatic and he has helped me progress in my dancing a lot. I highly recommend him as a dance instructor.”

north york dancer's reviews“We have been taking lessons with George since August 2008. Although I have numerous teachers previously, I found him the best I ever had. My husband loves his teaching us to “dance with music” and not just dancing. We found George very patient and detail in his teaching. He does not jump into teaching us routines until we master the basic steps, and ensure we have the correct posture for each step. To these, we thank George for his great job and patience. We also thank him to teach us the difference between international ballroom dance and American smooth. Both of us enjoy totally our dancing lessons. We highly recommend George to those who are interested to learn ballroom dancing, and wish to be graceful on the dance floor.”
