Rachel Rysanek
Artistic Staff

As a graduate of DPU, Rachel has trained in jazz, ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, and, of course, her favorite – tap! It’s been her passion since she started dancing at five years old. She proudly won Senior Dupree National Champion for her tap solo in 2016!

She began teaching at DPU in 2016 and also has been teaching tap classes for all ages at COCA since 2017. Rachel loves to attend master classes where she can broaden her skills in all types of dance and use them in her teaching.

Rachel graduated from Fox High School with her Associate of Arts degree in 2017. She is currently seeking Biology and Clinical Laboratory Science degrees at Maryville University with a minor in Spanish. Rachel is excited to continue teaching at DPU!
