Ballet Arts Academy is growing and we are so excited to welcome Rachel Quick to our studio. We are so excited to have her teaching Creative Movement and Pre-Ballet on Saturdays.
At the age of 12, Rachel discovered her passion for ballet at Surrendered School of the Arts in Tacoma. Growing up near Seattle, she spent her high school years studying ballet, attending summer intensives, and participating in community performances with local studios including The Ballet Theatre School and Metropolitan Ballet of Tacoma.
Rachel is a recent graduate of Whitworth University where she majored in Biology with a minor in Spanish. Throughout her college years, Rachel continued cultivating her skills and investing in her passion for dance by serving as the ballet teacher and artistic director for Whitworth University’s dance club, Jubilation Dance Ministry. She now works as a Program Associate for Innovia Foundation in Spokane.
“As a young girl, I tried many sports and extracurricular activities before I discovered my passion for ballet. As a teacher, I cherish every opportunity to spark a love for the movement and joy of dance in my students. The pursuit of dance not only offers a beautiful outlet for creative expression, but it also instills the importance of perseverance and dedication: qualities that can serve and inspire students of dance for a lifetime.”
Lovely words from our newest teacher.
