Betsy Daly

Betsy Daly has been running successful dance/acting/musical theater/fencing studios in the NY/NJ area for the past 15 years, for age 2-1/2 through adults.

Her grandmother had a dance and theater studio during the Great Depression with notable students including Donald O’Connor. Ms. Daly is happy to continue this family tradition. CPA is a teaching home for both of her children, Susanna and Stephen, and her late husband, Joseph Daly, created the fencing program at CPA and trained our fencing masters.

Both Director and teacher at Cresskill Performing Arts, Ms. Daly is co-Director and co-Founder of Working Actor Studio in New York City, which is an acting studio for adults. Her students have been seen on Broadway, in National and International Tours, on the Disney channel, and in music videos.  Ms. Daly believes in the power of the performing arts for self-esteem, kindness, creativity and more!
