Rachel is from Long Island, NY and began her dance training at the age of three at Donna Carbone’s Dance Arts. She spent a majority of her life with her “Donnamite” family, training in ballet, pointe, lyrical, jazz, tap, and Rockette-style precision kickline. Upon graduating from high school, Rachel attended Stonehill College in Massachusetts, where she pursued degrees in History, Education, and Dance. She was a member of both the Stonehill College Dance Company and Dance Club, and choreographed for three years with the company. Rachel also attended and performed with the Joffrey Ballet School in New York City for three summers, and had the unique opportunity to dance and perform with Florence Dance Center in Florence, Italy during her time abroad. After graduating from Stonehill, Rachel moved to Boston and currently teaches Social Studies at Attleboro High School. She dances both in and out of the classroom as much as she can, frequenting open classes at Boston Ballet and with local choreographers. Rachel is so grateful to be part of the DanceWorks Boston family since Season 15, and cannot wait to continue sharing her passion for dance with the rest of the company as a choreographer!
