Rachel grew up training and dancing at the School of the Minnesota Ballet and has enjoyed being Clara in the premiering production of the Minnesota Ballet’s “Manhattan” Nutcracker, along with other roles of “Waltz of the Flowers” and “Waltz of the Snowflakes.” She has also enjoyed performing as Spanish doll and Mazurka dancer in Coppélia, a fairy in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and a swan in the Ballet’s 50th Anniversary Gala Performance. Rachel has been an assistant ballet teacher in the Ballet’s Creative Dance program for five years and has served as teaching assistant for Pre-Ballet I and II. She has enjoyed summer dance programs in Minnesota and in 2013 studied at the Boston Ballet’s summer dance program. She received the Rose Mary Harmeier Hoene Dance Award in 2014 and scholarships to summer dance programs at the Kansas City Ballet and Alonzo King LINES Ballet. She is very excited about her first professional season.
