Dancer of the Week

Our first official dancer of the week for 2015 is senior Rachel Cockerham, from Kingsville, MD!

Rachel is double majoring in Dance and English.

Any Pets?
My family has a squirrel that my brother and I rescued because he fell out of a nest when he was a baby. We also have a cat.
Pointe shoes?
I wear Suffolk Solos.
What is one thing that is always in your dance bag?
I always have socks, because I don't like dancing when my feet are cold.
What is your favorite ballet that you've ever performed?
I loved dancing in "By the Fading Light" choreographed by Assistant Professor Melissa Bobick. I also really enjoyed a piece I danced in high school set to Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.
