Rachel Afriyie has trained at a number of institutions across the UK including Barbara Speake Stage School, Danceworks, and the International Dance Teachers’ Association. Her extensive training has lead to a number of impressive performance credits, most recently featuring in a music video for American musician Amar Sandhu and performing at the Danceworks Awards Show.
Alongside her work as a professional dancer, Rachel has taught at Rise Dance Studios, Loughborough University and Sadler’s Wells Theatre. She uses her classes as a tool to remind students of the enjoyment and freedom of dance, while helping them develop confidence and individuality in a safe space.
As a highly experienced dance teacher, Rachel’s favourite thing about teaching is seeing her students realise their own potential and grow as a dancer.
