Beginner kids program
Dan has been wonderful teaching three of my daughters, particularly my four year old who started out afraid to put her face in the water and is now a confident swimmer. He strikes a great balance of patient but firm, and my kids always look forward to their lessons with him. Highly recommend!
Svetlana N
Beginner kids program, swim team prep
As a family of swimmers, we are very particular about swim instructors for our three children, ages 9, 6, and 4. Dan satisfied our highest standards. All three have improved their technique greatly over the last several months. The lifeguard in our pool said about the two younger ones that he had never seen such young kids swim so well. Dan also made scheduling, communication, and payment incredibly easy and customer friendly.

Grateful to have found Dan this summer to help my 13 year old son become a more confident swimmer. This was the best experience we have had with swimming instructors - Dan was able to figure out quickly exactly what my son needed to work on and then created a fun and successful swim lesson plan. We were able to meet at our local public pool on the UES and setting up lessons time was easy. I highly recommend contacting DanSwim if you need any type of swimming lessons in NYC.

Beginner kids program
I used Danswim this past summer for my 3 and 4 year old girls. We were thrilled with our instructor, Austin. The girls adored him and he made the lessons a nice mixture of fun and learning. Now my older daughter can swim a few strokes unsupported and my younger daughter is feeling more comfortable and confident in the water - which were the goals that I set out for in the beginning of summer. Also really appreciated the convenience and flexibility!!

Dan is a great instructor! Very dedicated and professional. I love to see the happy eyes of my 5 year old son who is getting stronger, more confident and looking forward to new activities.

Simona G
Beginner kids program
The experience we had with our 5 years old is simply amazing! He's not only having a lot of fun every time he does have the swim lesson, but he improved significantly from the very first time. Ty is a great teacher and he's able to involve him in the most engaging way through games and tips. Our son now loves swimming and diving in the pool with his goggles. We'll definitely recommend this company and its services!!!

Jon B
Swim team prep
Dan and team have been terrific - professional, punctual and effective. And the kids don't even argue about going to swim lessons!

Swim team prep
My 5 year old son has always displayed a natural talent in the water but in working with Dan, his passion and swimming skills have far surpassed our expectations. Dan recognized that my son could be pushed harder in the pool and with the right balance of rigor and patience, my son has mastered 4-5 additional strokes. What I like most about the lessons is how much my son enjoys learning - his confidence has increased greatly and Dan maximizes his potential by identifying and correcting even small nuances in the strokes. At the pool, many parents and even other instructors have been impressed by the results. Dan really cares about his students and is one of the few instructors that I have seen that can translate precise technique to young children and still keep it fun.

Dan is consistently patient and professional. My daughter (9 yrs) has improved tremendously. I highly recommend Dan for swimming lessons for beginners or competitive swimming (as with my daughter).
Natalia S
Beginner kids program
My 10 years old son did know how to swim, because we could not find a school that fits our schedule. I found Danila on line and was not disappointed. We took 6 classes and my son can finally swim. He is very flexible with a schedule and easy to deal with and most important - he gets the job done. He delivers result in a short term. My son enjoyed his swim classes.
With DanSwim, your child will learn more than water safety and swim techniques– they'll develop coordination, confidence, and social skills, all while having a ton of fun with our expert instructors!

    Enhanced physical & mental development

    Drowning prevention & personal water safety
    In the United States, an average of ten people drown every day. Of those, two are children aged 14 or younger. Drowning is fast and silent– only a few moments can change the course of your family's life forever. However, proper education in water safety and swimming can prevent this tragedy from happening to you.
