Our first official dancer of the week for 2015 is senior Rachel Cockerham, from Kingsville, MD!
Rachel is double majoring in Dance and English.
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.
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.
As a graduating senior, Rachel is currently seeking opportunities for after May! To learn more about her, please check out her website:
