" Thankyou Rachel for being such an awesome dance teacher.  You have inspired me from day one and your classes are the highlight of my week.  You have not only helped me to get fit but have given me opportunities to develop my dancing and you have always believed in me.  The standard of dancers you produce is extremely high and this has been proven in dance exam results, we are all privileged to have you here in Wanaka. YOU ROCK!!!"     Josie Quick  
 Dance had always been part of my life however my inspiration for dance didn't really get started until the arrival of Rachel in 2001.  She offers a safe environment to express and learn and I find every class rewarding.  She brings so much energy to a class you can't help but get caught up in it!  An accomplished choreographer whose talent, expertise and integrity is an asset to our community.
Rachel is truly gifted in her profession and a great role model.  Mary Hewitt
With our up and coming wedding, we wanted to learn a few moves on the dance floor.  We contacted Rachel only a month or so out from the big day, and she cheerfully took us in as her students.
Rachel first listened to our ideas and preferred music, then made a few recommendations and prescribed us with a series of one on one lessons, which were a whole lot of fun.
Rachel's methodical and easy to follow instruction was easily committed to memory,  and we were surprised how quickly we picked things up.  She choreographed a dance that so accurately expressed our personality, yet was still within our skill and confidence level.  Each week that went by, we felt more and more confident with our dance.
Our wedding dance turned out to be an incredibly memorable aspect of our day.  We had a lot of fun with Rachael, who's style is easy going, friendly and upbeat. We couldn't recommend her services enough.    Erica Keppel 
I started at Dance Out Loud with no experience or background in dance at all but have loved every minute I have spent there! 
The school is like one big family and I have met some great friends of all ages through dancing.
Rachel’s enthusiasm is infectious and no matter how tired I have felt before a class, her energy just lifts me up and makes me feel alive again! The routines she comes up with are always different and so much fun to learn.   It’s also a great way of keeping fit, working your mind and socialising at the same time!   Sian Law
