It is with immense pride, gratitude, and excitement that I share the news that Dance with Miss Rachel will be opening our second location this Winter on Columbus Ave at 86th Street in the heart of the Upper West Side. We are thrilled to share our program with a whole new community of families.
DWMR began in 2012 with one teacher, a rolling suitcase, and big plans. Since our first recital of 40 dancers, we have grown to a team of nearly 30 professional instructors who have had the privilege of teaching thousands of young dancers in a beautiful 4-studio space in Tribeca. We have introduced our Baby Bop! Music program for babies as young as 10 weeks, teach private piano and voice lessons daily, and host weekly birthday parties, while continuing to teach our core classes 85+ times/week. DWMR is a family, truly grown from the ground up.
I want to thank each and every one of you for being part of this journey so far. Whether you hosted classes in your playroom back in 2012, introduced us to your friends, or took a chance on me teaching in a basement on Reade Street...thank you. This next chapter is possible because of YOU.
And don't worry, we're not going anywhere! Tribeca will always be our home base and we look forward to continuing to be part of your children's lives—a privilege we don't take lightly—for years to come.
We plan to open our doors at the end of January 2020 and we hope you'll help us spread the word and help us continue to grow our family. The new UWS schedule can be found here.
Upper West Side, here we come!
