When Rachel was a student in Victoria, she struggled to find a dance studio appropriate for her age. Since she couldn’t find what she was looking for, she started her own studio and found a community of young people like her who wanted to bring their love of dance with them into adulthood. Her side project soon attracted adults who were interested in dance but didn’t pursue it as children, and eventually became Passion and Performance. Rachel’s dance and performance studio offers classes to adults from all backgrounds, skill levels, and abilities with three locations on Vancouver Island. She also offers wedding dance lessons, bachelorette parties, and other custom events.
