Classically trained in ballet since the age of three, Rachel is a ballerina turned aerialist and innovative variety performer. Modern, belly dance, and lyrical jazz make up some of her versatile background, as well as four years of aerial acrobatic training at the Circus Center of San Francisco and Emerald City Trapeze Arts in Seattle. Rachelís cross training gives her the ability to deliver a wide range of movements from lithe and ethereal to earthy and visceral. Rich, extravagant movements and strong, multifaceted technique are her trademarks. Captivating audiences with an eloquent musculature and a capacity to deliver roles from comedy to mystery, she is based out of Seattle, Washington and her performances at the Moisture Festival this year will feature a violin compilation by Rick May.
