Rachel Brushwood - Virginia Interview by Zoe D’Angelo Nomination by Deanna Coyle Photography by Ali Johnson Photography Featured in Issue 19 of Inspiring Teens Magazine
The Nomination: I believe that Rachel Brushwood is extremely inspiring. She has been dancing at Brushwoods School of Dance since she was three years old. She is a part of the performance company and works vigorously in and outside of class to better herself. She also helps appreciate dancers ages 3-6. She is at the dance studio from right after school till around 9:30. She always puts her best forward. She would like to go to school to major in business and minor in dance so that she can take over the studio and continue teaching young girls and boys to fall in love with the art of dance just as she did at such a young age.
About Rachel: My favorite style of dance is probably modern because it allows you to be creative and express yourself. Outside of dance I work on my skills at home and at the studio on weekends. In the past I have volunteered for my community through 4H and FFA. I also work at my dance studio and apprentice classes ages 3-6.
Along with this I have worked at the local middle school and helped with special needs students and students that speak foreign languages. After high school I plan to attend Piedmont Virginia Community College and then transfer to study business and dance. After college I would like to take over ownership of my grandmother’s dance studio and teach classes. The advice I would give to others is to work hard and push yourself.
