Rachel Johnson Burnett has been teaching at 4SDC since 2013. Originally from Minneapolis, she started dancing at the age of 3 and never stopped!
She graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2013 where she earned a B.A. in Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies and Dance. In college, she studied extensively with Melissa Rolnick, Stephan Koplowitz, Jeffrey Peterson, and Sarah Hauss.
She has performed in Italy and New Zealand as well as locally (local highlights include RENOVATE at the Ritz Theatre and co-directing, choreographing, & performing in the MN Fringe Festival). She continues her training through taking dance classes as much as possible, but has found that being a dance educator is her passion.
Her goal as a teacher is to share her knowledge and love of dance with her students, no matter what age or ability – from Tiny Tots to adults!
When not at the studio, Rachel can be found reading, baking, traveling, and spending time with friends and family – especially husband Dan, daughter Mara, and dog Stella.
