Rachel fell in love with swing dancing at her first lesson at Truman State in 2012. Spending a gap year in St. Louis taught her about St. Louis Shag before moving to Indianapolis to work on her Masters in Human Biology. The past handful of years have been spent traveling to learn, compete, and meet new friends from all over the country. In the past year, she has used all the experience and knowledge she’s gathered to begin teaching in Indianapolis and the surrounding college scenes. Best described as an exuberant, always-smiling teacher, Rachel loves to share her passion for dance with anyone willing to listen and learn. Excited to teach Lindy Hop, Charleston, St. Louis Shag, Balboa (and more!), Rachel specializes in technique, musicality, and developing a deeper understanding and love of the art of dancing.
