Personal Description::

I am an experienced dancer, performer and teacher with a passion for making dance accessible to all people no matter their experience or ability. I specialise in Latin American and Ballroom partner dancing but also trained in contemporary dance and classics. I have competed in Same-Sex dance competitions across Europe and I'm a member of People Dancing.

I offer tailored private lessons in partner dancing for couples and individuals who want a unique and special experience. Dance styles include Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Jive, Slow Waltz, Quickstep, Foxtrot and Ballroom Tango. However, if you have something else in mind I can adapt and create something that is unique as you are.

I can also create bespoke choreography for a special occasion including first dances for weddings, wedding anniversary dances, friend/family group dances, engagement flashmob choreography.

Sometimes you will want to learn how to move more freely in your body - my free body movement sessions help you to explore your personal body movement through simple exercises and improvisation games. This is particularly affective for anyone that wants to build confidence in presenting, public speaking or performance.

Dance Instruction/Teaching Experience::

I am experienced in teaching people who benefit from time spent in a safe and comfortable environment when learning to dance. I started teaching in 2007 working with young people in schools in Kent to develop choreography for small showcases as well as assisting the delivery of BTEC Dance. In 2012 I developed a programme for Gendered Intelligence to offer inclusive dance classes for LGBT people under 25. I have been teaching Latin and Ballroom group lessons with Irreverent Dance and 1-1 private lessons since 2013. I launched my company Rachel **Removed By Admin** in 2015 to teach dance full time.

I have worked with people of all ages choreographing and teaching dances for individuals, couples, groups and hen do parties.

Teaching Approach::

I aim for you to leave every lesson feeling more confident than the last. By understanding your desire to dance I can create lessons that fit your needs in your preferred dance style. Whether you want to feel more confident at parties or social dances I can take you step by step so that you can feel free and comfortable to enjoy yourself and the occasion.

Bespoke choreography for a special occasion
I will work with you to create a special moment in time. Whether you want to dance a romantic waltz for a special wedding anniversary, or perfect an impressive jive to wow your guests on your wedding day, I will choreograph a unique piece that celebrates your union.

With one-to-one tuition I can help you learn how to dance with confidence, improve your coordination and connection with a dance partner so you can move together with ease when it matters the most.

I work inclusively and support you so that you get the most out of the experience.
