In 2012, “Miss Rachel” Cantor, a lifelong dancer, singer, and teaching artist, realized her dream of introducing young children to dance and music, beginning with 40 students in the studio’s first year-end recital. Now in its tenth year, Dance with Miss Rachel has grown to include a team of over 30 professional teaching artists, with studios in Tribeca, the Upper West Side, summer pop-ups in the Hamptons, and now the Upper East Side.

In September, Dance with Miss Rachel opened the doors to a gorgeous new, four-studio, two-level space at 266 East 78th Street between 2nd & 3rd Avenues. Programs include Ballet, Tap, Hip Hop, and Musical Theatre for ages 18 months and up, Baby Bop! Music for babies as young as 10 weeks, as well as piano & voice lessons, birthday parties, and special events. 

“We are so honored to celebrate our tenth anniversary by expanding our studio family to the UES,” said founder and owner Rachel Cantor. “It’s such a special community and a dream come true.”

Winter/Spring classes—which are taught by professional instructors through song (most classes include live piano music)—are now enrolling and run January 28 - June 17, 2023, culminating in a year-end recital (a complete production with costumes, sound, and lighting). 

New students are invited to take a free trial class and Macaroni Kid UES readers can save 5% when they enroll before December 31 with code “MacKidDec5” (new students only).

Dance with Miss Rachel has become the premier children’s dance and music studio in Tribeca and the UWS (classes are known to fill up within an hour…), and families return year after year.
