Rachel is a 17 year old who started dancing at the age of 8 and fell in love with the art. She began to take more classes and compete on her studio’s competition team. Rachel’s favorite type of dance is Modern. She loves to choreograph and has even choreographed her own Modern solo that she is performing at competitions. In April 2018 she won a Student Choreography Award at Headliners Dance Championship in Lawrenceville, NJ. Rachel will be attending Bennington College in Vermont where she will study dance and choreography. Rachel lost one of her younger brothers to cancer a few years ago. Due to emotional and financial difficulties, the family has a hard time paying for Rachel’s dance. Fresh Smiles wanted to help Rachel continue her passion and give her the opportunity to follow her dream.
