Rachel started dancing at the age of nine after watching her friend’s dance recital. It was there she fell in love with it! She spent 8 years at Raddatz Dance in Eagan taking all the styles including: tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, ballet, pointe, and hip-hop. Rachel continued her love for dance by participating in dance theater at Rosemount High School. There she was able to choreograph and perform her original dances. During her junior year, she was awarded the Student of the Year for Raddatz Dance Eagan.
Rachel is currently a 2nd Grade Teacher in Brooklyn Center. She attended the University of Minnesota for a Masters degree in Elementary Education. During her junior year of college she was asked to come back and teach at Raddatz Dance Eagan. There she taught ages pre-K through adult. Her favorite styles include hip-hop and ballet. Rachel is so excited to get back in the studio teaching at the West St. Paul location!
