Miss Rachel Ferrara | Teacher
I am thrilled to be part of the DSI staff again this year. My dance training began at the age of three, making DSI my home away from home for fifteen years. During this time, I successfully completed exams in jazz, ballet, and tap, and trained in contemporary, lyrical, hip-hop, and musical theatre. I also danced competitively for nine years. While dancing at DSI, I was fortunate to receive the Most Promising Jazz Dancer Award for the 2015-2016 season. One of my favourite experiences at Dance Spectrum was being a DSI understudy for four years. Growing up at DSI, I was inspired by not only my fellow dancers, but also my amazing teachers. I graduated from DSI in 2019 and am currently a student at the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business. I cannot wait to return to the role of teaching for my second year and share my knowledge, passion, and love of dance with my students!
