Rachel has been dancing since she was 3 years old and began dancing competitively at age 6 with Impact Dance Company. This is Rachel’s 7th and final season with Beyond Words, and she is especially proud to be one of the original company members.
Rachel has had so many wonderful experiences as a BW dancer. She was honored to perform in Kate Jablonski’s Off-Broadway production, Beyond Words, at the New World Stages Theatre in New York City, and in Tabula Rasa at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago with Kate’s professional dance company, The Kate Jablonski Statement. This past summer she also had the opportunity to assist Kate at her summer dance intensive, Camp Kate. Most recently, Rachel was thrilled to be chosen as the dance double & soloist for the role of Cassie in the Music Makers Theatre production of A Chorus Line.
An honor student in her senior year of high school, Rachel is a fourth-year full company member of her high school dance company. She is also co-president of the Italian Club and a catechist for 1st graders at her church.
Rachel is so grateful for the close friendships she has made during her years at BW. She would like to thank her very first dance teacher, Miss Mickey, her parents for their love and support and of course Kate Jablonski for being such a wonderful inspiration in her life!
