Rachel Palmieri began dancing at the age of 5. She trained in ballet, tap, jazz and modern dance through her youth.
She graduated with a B.A. in Fine & Performing Arts from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in 2008, studying musical theater, vocal and instrumental music and dance. She was a lead choreographer and principal dancer in her college's dance company for all 4 years of attendance.
After graduating, she got a job as an office manager at Fred Astaire in Belmont, MA where she also trained in American style smooth & rhythm. She realized very quickly she did not want to stay behind the desk and fell in love with ballroom dancing and pursued teaching professionally.
She taught and managed for 8 years at Fred Astaire, during which she was a Fred Astaire National Professional Smooth Finalist. In 2016, she moved to Florida to open her own independent studio, All The Right Moves. After several top teacher and top studio awards and building a base of students from scratch, her experience of running a studio has grown tremendously.
Her passion for dancing and teaching brings her so much joy and she hopes to positively impact all of her students lives through teaching!
