Beginner adult program
Dan is a great instructor! I took private adult swim lessons with him and he was very patient. Dan understood where I was coming from since I did not know how to swim at all. I did not have a private pool in my building so I took my classes at the public pool.
Beginner adult program
Dan is the best! I've always been deeply afraid of deep water. I found Dan in my google search when I decided to try to get over my fear. Dan is very experienced and was very patient with me. He taught me the proper way to swim, teaching me various techniques and helped me get more comfortable in the water. He also explains things well which was very helpful. While my fear is not completely cured, in the last class I was able to jump into the deep end, something I had never done before in my life. I have gotten much more comfortable in the water and am excited to continue working on this. Dan is very friendly and personable. I really can't recommend him enough!

Chris C
Beginner adult program
It's my first time taking beginner private swim lessons with Dan. Being in my mid 30s and holding a crutch for so long never learning to swim, I figured that it was time to break the streak because I really enjoy being in water with solitude. I was nervous and doubtful about not getting the best learning experiences before having the first lesson. My internal doubts after the first lesson with Dan were gone. I am truly grateful for Dan's patience, encouragement, and also providing some psychological counsel of being comfortable in water which is what I really needed. Dan really helped me to embrace the learning process and not be overly perfect and overthink in executing fundamentals. I really believe that Dan does very well in listening to the student's swim needs and having a productive dialogue to progress in a realistic manner. I look forward to taking lessons again with you in the future. Thank you Dan for sharing your passions of swimming through teaching!
Bruce C
Advanced adult program
Excellent swim instructor. Really helped me improve my swim time for my triathlons. I strongly recommend him!

Racquel B
Beginner adult program
Dan has been an incredible instructor. He is positive, calm, supportive, patient, and encouraging. He was always on time and flexible with his schedule when needed. He will explain the different techniques in detail and adjust them based on your level of experience and injuries. You can tell he is dedicated to the sport, and it isn't just about a paycheck for him. I highly recommend Dan to anyone looking to learn how to swim or improve their swimming.

Beginner adult program
Let me say off the bat, best swimming lessons I've ever had and I'm not just saying that because I can swim now! I've been so afraid of water that I didn't even want to do things like ride the nyc ferry lol. Now I can laugh about it. I love swimming now. I learned to not only swim but to treat the water like my friend. Plus I learned right before my honeymoon, so now I can swim with my wife. The teachers are amazing. The prices are great as well. They are really flexible and work with your schedule. Once again, thank you Dan and Mo for teaching me how to swim! I can't thank you both enough! Anyone looking to learn how to swim, this is where you should go!

Frances Callaghan
Advanced adult program
I worked with Dan on multiple occasions to help improve my swim stroke and feel more confident in water. Dan immediately made me feel at ease. He would walk me through drills and then provide immediate and actionable feedback. Since working with Dan, I feel more comfortable in the water and have gone from being exhausted within 25m to completing my first Sprint triathlon (750m) in just a few months! Thank you, Dan!

Summer vacation program
Dan is a phenomenal swimming coach. I made more progress with him in a few sessions than anyone else over twenty years of trying. Highly recommend him if you want to learn to swim and swim great
Kelsey S
Beginner adult program
Had a great time under Dan's guide. He is super patient and a great guy. We had 3 people in our class and we were all able to progress far after just one session. I would 100% suggest him to anyone trying to enjoy all the fun things swimming bring along with it.
Summer vacation program
I originally found Dan via a Google search. I wanted to find adult swim classes, as most I saw were geared towards children. My intro class with him was great. He's a really friendly person and knows how to communicate well. I'm already able to do a few things on my own in the water after taking a handful of classes. I will continue to keep him as my swim instructor!
Maricela Alfonso
Beginner adult program
Dan is really great and knows what he's doing.. I had no idea how to swim and an adult learning to swim isn't easy.. he is patient and gives very clear instructions and after six classes I can say I can swim.. I highly recommend
Adam Howard
Beginner adult program
Dan is incredibly patient and supportive. I literally could do nothing in a pool and I'm nearly 40 years old. Dan helped me overcome a lot of my fears and I have vastly improved. Highly recommended!
Moe K
Advanced adult program
I had the pleasure of working with Dan for a few weeks and let me tell you, this has been by far the best swim coaching I've ever received. I am in the Army and needed a coach who can help me boost my confidence in the water before attending Ranger School. Dan helped me accomplish those goals and with his coaching I was able to pass all the swim/drowning tests. I've worked with other coaches who were good swimmers but what stood out about Dan is his ability to teach swimming just as much as his abilities to swim at a competitive level. He is the real deal and if you're looking to become a better swimmer then there are no better coaches than him in the NYC area. Take my word for it.

Beginner adult program
I had a lot of fun during my classes with Dan! He's a great teacher and quickly helps you to improve. I learned skills in one lesson that I just could not get right before. It's often just a small, perhaps overlooked detail, which he pinpoints and helps you to adjust👍. He's encouraging and funny, and will tailor his guidance to your pace and level. Thanks Dan, I'm ready for all the fun water sports now!;) 🙌
Alden L
Summer vacation program
Having tried both group and individual swimming lessons, I am extremely glad with the decision to go with Danila. His passion for swimming shines through - he has written a (free!) book on the basic techniques, and he genuinely derives satisfaction from his teaching. What I loved most was Danila's coupling of theory and practice for adult students. He lets you learn theoretically first, then experientially. Therefore I feel that I know why I am doing certain things and I am sure that these will help me in the long-term
Rana C
Summer vacation program
I cannot recommend Dan enough! I am in mid-30s and had around a dozen people try to teach me to swim, but none of them were even able to get me anywhere near Dan did after just 1 full lesson! He is very professional and is an excellent teacher. Thanks to Dan, my wife and I were able to scuba dive to see coral reefs and without Dan's coaching we would have never been able to do so. If you are hesitant on taking lessons and are not sure which coach is the best, you cannot go wrong with Dan so stop reading and book a lesson with him already!
Shah N
Summer vacation program
I'd been struggling with my swimming skills before meeting Dan, even though I knew the basics. He really helped me with the techniques and improved my body movements and breathing techniques. He has been very patient and thought me 1-on-1 how to be relax on water and enjoy Swiming. I highly recommend him. He's a great teacher.
Silvia Z
Beginner adult program
I really enjoy learning swimming with Dany, he always pushes me which I need. I like how he gives me direction, and shows me examples of what to do. We also have good conversation throughout the class, which helps me to relax and recovery my breath it doesn't make the session so stressful. I recommend him 100%
