It is with immense pride and gratitude that I announce DWMR Upper East Side, our third NYC studio, will open this September. Our gorgeous new home will be located on East 78th between 2nd & 3rd, and will boast four classrooms and all of the beloved DWMR classes (Ballet, Broadway, Tap, Hip Hop, Baby Bop! Music, Piano & Voice lessons, Birthday Parties, and more).
Enrollment for DWMR UES will begin very soon...
DWMR has been a community staple in Tribeca since 2012 and on the UWS since 2020, and we look forward to making our home on the UES for years to come. None of this would be possible without the support of our studio families, and for that we are forever grateful.
And now, to the East Side we go!
With thanks and gratitude,
By popular demand, we are pleased to announce in-person, outdoor, small-group & private socially distant classes in The Hamptons again this summer!
Summer in the Hamptons

Looking to dance more than once a week? Want to add theme-based arts and crafts to make it a mini-camp? Let us know!
To say that we have missed seeing all of your dancers in person is an understatement. The past few months have been challenging for our small, family business, but we never lost hope that we would all be reunited in our gorgeous, brand-new studio once again. For families who were enrolled in our winter/spring session, we danced together in over 400 (!) on-demand and live virtual classes throughout our physical closure. We met each other online every single day. THANK YOU for your support. We can never say that enough.
DWMR is proud to to be opening both of our studios in Tribeca and the Upper West Side studio for limited in-person classes this Fall following careful health and safety guidelines.
We'll be offering multiple ways to dance with us this fall...
Thank you for your incredible support over the past several months. We're looking forward to a wonderful year!
I hope this finds you all safe and healthy.
We've been carefully working through how to continue to provide as much value and consistency for our dancers as possible during this unprecedented time of disruption.
It's clear at this point that we will not be able to re-open our doors next Monday as we'd hoped, and while we're incredibly disappointed by this reality, we're also excited to share that beginning on Monday, March 30, we'll take our classes virtual with DWMR at Home so we can keep dancing together.
Until we are able to re-open our doors...
We will continue to provide these services every week of the Winter/Spring session until we can all dance together in person once again. We will closely monitor official guidance and keep you posted on timing.
Our annual recital is typically the highlight of our year, and we remain optimistic that this year will be no different. However, we also realize that as circumstances change daily, we will need to remain flexible. In any event, we are committed to coming together as a community to celebrate our dancers' hard work. We promise to keep you updated with information as we have it.
DWMR is a small, family business, and we humbly ask the community that we've served for the past 10 years (and those we're only just getting to know) to stick with us. We want to be here for our families when this moment passes. We want to survive this crisis and open our doors the very moment it is safe to do so. And of course, once we are able to be together in person, we will continue to find ways to help make up for the time we were not able to be physically together.
But for now, we are rising to this challenge and facing this crisis in the only way we know how—by providing consistent, professional, joyful classes to our community. Our dancers need it and our dancers deserve it.
Enrolled families—watch for an email each week with links to our first week of digital DWMR at Home classes and each week following, and in the meantime, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and follow us on Instagram to get your daily dose of DMWR fun.
All of us at DWMR wish for the continued health and safety of you and your family and thank you for your continued support and community during this challenging time. And wow, you are missed.
With love and appreciation,
PS. NEW STUDENTS: we'd love to have you join us! See you how can join us for LIVE drop-in classes or subscribe for unlimited access to our full virtual class catalog of live and on-demand classes.
