Rachel is a Boston-based dancer, choreographer and educator. Her favorite style of dance is floor barre, though she has found more success identifying as a contemporary dance artist. Rachel dances with KAIROS Dance Theatre and also directs and choreographs ZACHOR, an ongoing project series that seeks to preserve the words of WWII Holocaust survivors through dance. While most of Rachel's creative work is serious and somewhat dark in nature, she is actually a very light-hearted and happy person. When she’s not dancing or burying herself in work, Rachel’s idea of a good time is any type of summer camp style group game or organized fun.
