    Senior Lecturer

    We don't just want to mould students into what's current - we encourage them to push artistic and intellectual boundaries in order to drive dance to the next level.

    Rachel was a fixture on the Independent London Contemporary Dance scene for 20 years before joining us after teaching for two years at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance. She has enjoyed an artistically diverse career, working and performing with more than 20 different artists, including La Ribot, Akram Khan and Wendy Houstoun. Another interesting fact about Rachel is that she was hit by lightning in 1999, but appears to be OK!
