Welcome to Cadance!

Bienvenue à Cadance!

group classes

I’ll be so excited to get back to our regular – hybrid! – schedule for the fall: two levels of jazz, two Pilates classes, and a virtual barre class each week.

With this hybrid model, you can come take jazz and Pilates at the studio with me. If you are not ready for that yet (or if you don’t live in Montreal!), you can choose the online option.

If you plan on taking in-person classes for the fall, I would strongly recommend being fully vaccinated, in case the studio is affected by implementation of the vaccine passport. And vaccination is a good thing to do anyway, for yourself and for the community!

Registration for virtual classes (via Google Meet) remains the same on the website. Follow the prompts for in-person class registration.


Have you been wanting to attend a Pilates class, but you were afraid you’d be in over your head? That if only there were a little intro class you could do before you joined the group, you’d be at ease? Or maybe you’ve already taken your first (or several) Pilates class and you were left wondering what the heck was the teacher talking about when she said “imprint”? Or how can I modify the Hundred to make it work for me?

That’s exactly why I’m making these Beginner Pilates Program videos FREE to you! Whether you’ve never tried Pilates before, you have a limited understanding of it, or you would like to review the basic principles of the breath, alignment, and beginner exercises, this Pre-Pilates & Beginner Matwork class and several others are for you! And you can watch as many times as you’d like!

Panel 3


Rarely have I felt more welcome in a dance class.  Rachel is an engaged and knowledgeable teacher and makes the class fun without compromising her teaching method.  The warm-up and technical work provide an amazing and balanced workout, and Rachel’s ability to create brilliant choreographies for all levels really made me feel like I was progressing as a dancer and helped me to build my confidence in my movements both in and out of dance class.

~ Nadine of R.A.M. Management


Pilates is a low impact exercise program that packs a punch. Rachel Santos delivers that punch. Rachel is a dynamic and energetic instructor. With her knowledge and dedication to her craft, Rachel zeroes in on your strengths and weaknesses. Her classes are always fun, and challenging at the same time!

During these difficult times, it is important to stay healthy both with mind and body. Rachel has helped me both in studio and now virtually. I have been able to stay toned and to “breathe” again during our classes. She has helped me to stay motivated and on track. Rachel has helped me ease back into regaining my strength and flexibility. The Pilates world needs more instructors who are devoted and caring as Rachel.
