Owner of Next Level Dancing
Professional Ballroom Dancer and Competitor
Dancing ballet from the age of 3 until 18, Rachel discovered Ballroom dancing at Brigham Young University and began a love affair with the art form and sport. She was married after university and over the next decade had three beautiful children, two girls and a boy, all the while telling her friends and associates, “If I had another life, I would be a professional dancer!” -not realizing that her dreams could actually come true! Six years ago, she joined a gym to get fit, attending her first Zumba class. It felt like dancing! She became a Certified Zumba Instructor that year (and taught for the next four years) as well as coming back to ballroom dancing as an amateur, where she began competing Pro Am – in Open Gold level – in competitions within the first year. In addition to Zumba, She is also a certified La Blast instructor, a Ballroom Dance based fitness class created by Loius Van Amstel. by whom she was directly trained.
Her dedication to train like a Pro daily and get world class coaching regularly moved her closer to that becoming a reality. After 6 long hard years of work, sweat and focus, she has become a Professional International Latin Dancer. Concurrently, she also developed her skills in designing and creating her own dresses and jewelry for ballroom dance. Marrying these two loves by becoming the new owner of Next Level Dancing is truly a match made in heaven for her!
In addition to dance and dresses, Rachel has been a professional model for over 20 years, both runway and print, she has worked in the interior design business working on both residential and business projects,.
