Ms. Rachel became interested in dance when she was a teenager and tried out for her high school drill team. She was a member of the Waxahachie Cherokee Charmers drill team for 3 years where she trained in jazz, hip-hop, kick, lyrical, and novelty. Her junior year she earned her place as an officer (Lieutenant) on the squad. After high school, Rachel continued her dance education through classes at studios, master classes, and conventions. Wanting to further her dedication and passion for the art form, in 2012 Rachel stepped into a teaching position at Dance Xpressions. One of her biggest rewards is being able to see her choreography and ideas unfold on stage.
