if you are in the Dulles, Virginia area and are in need of a few dance lessons for a wedding or just to get out on the dance floor, send me an email via the contact me page.  I am not affiliated with any particular dance studio in this area, and I teach on an individual basis that fits the needs of my students and my family.  Some of my past students can provide references if you desire.


my dance background and experience in the third person...

Rachelle has been teaching Beginner through Intermediate social dance lessons for nearly 15 years. She began dancing circa 1994 in country line dancing and two step, but quickly learned many styles of swing, latin, and ballroom. She taught private and group lessons or five years in Rockville, MD at Rendezvous Social Dance & Fitness Club as well as at corporate events and private parties. Rachelle is certified through the Dance Vision International Dance Association (DVIDA).That's me in the cowboy hat

Rachelle enjoys teaching beginner dancers how to get moving on the dance floor to meet their goals as well as teaching more advanced dancers how to smooth out their lead and improve their follow so that everyone is happy and healthy to dance with. She teaches Salsa, Merengue, West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, Waltz, Fox Trot, Rumba, Cha Cha, Sway/Foxxy, Hustle, Nightclub Two Step, country line dancing and more!

Relying on her years of training as an educator of the sciences and computer sciences, Rachelle can tailor a lesson schedule with active learning techniques that can match your learning style. While many instructors are knowledgeable of their material, they lack the training as an educator to understand how to make their instruction the most effective and cost efficient for their students. Integral to Rachelle's mission as a dance instructor and a technology consultant is to show YOU how YOU can achieve your goals in an affordable way.

For several years, Rachelle taught wedding dance couples for The Wedding Dance Specialists in Montgomery County, MD.
