Rachel has been dancing from the age of 6, and has always loved getting to share her passion for performance arts with others. Her training includes over 12 combined years of Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, Hip Hop, and Tap.
Having lived in three states throughout her childhood and teen years, staying heavily involved in a dance studio was always a priority for her. She found a passion for theatre after getting involved in a Musical Theatre class at her final dance studio, and her love of the arts grew even more.
From there she continued her theatrical journey throughout high school and college, graduating from Sam Houston State University in May 2020 with a Bachelor’s in Theatre. While there, she also received advanced education in dance techniques.
Teaching dance has always been a dream of hers. She is incredibly excited to be joining the Backstage team, and is looking forward to an amazing, fun-filled year!
"Our daughter has attended her first two years of dance at Backstage Dance Studio and couldn't love it more. I truly believe that the amazing and talented instructors are one of a kind and love what they do. They not only instill love for the art of dance but self-confidence, which is priceless. We look forward to many more years here and to watching our daughter develop a life enriching art."
