From a young age, Rachel knew her calling in life was to inspire children to grow as individuals through the art of dance. She grew up dancing in Durant, Oklahoma under the direction of many talented and inspiring instructors. In high school, Rachel was a member of the Durant High School Sparklers and held the office of Captain for a year. Rachel pursued her love of dance in college and graduated from Southeastern Oklahoma State University with
a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theatre Management and Promotions with a Minor in dance.
Rachel’s teaching career spans over a decade. Upon moving to Texarkana, she began teaching at Texarkana Dance Academy. As an instructor, Rachel believes dance can teach more than technique. “Being a dance teacher is more than teaching the technique of dance. My goal is to instill self-confidence and life knowledge in each of my dancers. I want them to leave my studio as young women who are healthy, strong, and love themselves.”
Rachel is thrilled to be teaching at Kids’ College this year. Being able to provide an opportunity for kids across our community to stay active and engaged in physical activity this summer is of utmost importance to her. She is excited to be teaching Lyrical 101 and Hip-Hop 101. Both of these classes will provide students with the opportunity to learn foundational skills in these styles of dancing while also being able to express themselves through music and movement.
