Miss Rachel


At Gettysburg Dance Center we wish to instill a love of the performing arts to all ages! Whether attending for fun or for those who wish to pursue a dance career we encourage all who attend to aspire to excellence! We are proudly celebrating 20+ years as the premier dance studio in the Gettysburg area!

At Gettysburg Dance Center we believe our instructors are what set us apart, we consider ourselves not just dance teachers, but dance educators. We are the only dance studio in the area to have two degreed dance educators on staff, and a faculty with degrees in Education and the Arts. Our faculty has a combined teaching experience of over 65 years!

Owner/Executive Director Rachel Smith attained her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from Shenandoah University, with a focus on choreography, performance, and education. She also attained her Pilates Mat Teaching Certification through the Pilates Method Alliance after an extensive 40 hour training program.  After college Miss Rachel had the opportunity to study and dance with Danco 2, a division of PHILADANCO.  The entire team of professional dance educators are dedicated to providing all students with a quality dance instruction in a constructive environment. 

Gettysburg Dance Center's convenient, edge of town location, offers a spacious studio with Joffrey-style sprung dance flooring, a comfortable waiting area, and always plenty of free parking in our adjacent paved lot. We are now also offering classes out of a satellite location in the Fairfield Borough Hall, which also offers ample seating, restrooms, and parking.

Gettysburg Dance Center offers an ACH direct debit payment option, multiple class and family discounts, as well as discounts for advanced bi-annual payments.

Our Performance Ensemble is now established, which gives students private instruction with the faculty and guest artists, as well as several performance opportunities throughout the surrounding areas.

We look forward to dancing with you!!
