A dancer since the age of four, and with a family background of Ballroom and Latin Champions, Rachael, through her love of dance discovered and trains in many different forms of dance which to date include ballet, tap, modern, jazz, disco, ballroom, latin, salsa, west coast swing, hip hop, and of course Line Dancing. She began teaching line dance in York, England at the young age of 15.

With an ambition to dance and travel, she began competing with her first competition at the European Championships in April 1999 returning the following year as a Superstar. Having won many British and European titles she also took home a Double World title from Worlds 2000 as the Grand Classic and Showcase Line Dance Champion and was the first European female to qualify for the Superstar Division which is the highest competitive level in UCWDC Line Dance, she returned from UCWDC Worlds 2001 in Edmonton, Alberta Canada as the Female Superstar World Champion, a most memorable event.

Studying Sport and Languages, she finished college in June 1999 with 10 GCSEs and A-Levels in French, German and Sport Studies. However following her competitive success and her passion for dance she decided to make it her career and has since travelled internationally teaching workshops, demonstrating, coaching and competing.

Now part of an exciting new venture, Rachael has joined forces with Pedro, Rob and Paul and forms a company known as Masters In Line. 2002 has been an exciting first year with much more to look forward to in the future.

"We're excited about what is ahead for Masters In Line, The Future Of Dance."

She would like to thank her sponsors Maureen Lewis (Aunty Mo) for all her beautiful outfits, as well as Pulleyns Playmates, and Nick Reed along with Geoff and Eileen from Gem-n-I Diamante.

She would also like to thank her parents Ian and Gill for being such an incredible support throughout her life and encouraging her to follow her dream, Rob Fowler and Pedro Machado for all their help and inspiration throughout the years, Paul McAdam for being the best dance partner, best friend and for always being there, Jo Thompson who has been such a wonderful friend and inspiration, and of course Barbara Blake from Sapphire Entertainments, her agent, who is so much more...

"Thankyou for always guiding me!"

Not forgetting of course Rachael's Classes in York, Live-2-Dance...

"Thanks for all your support over the last six years, you're the best!"

"No doubt I will have forgotten someone but I certainly didn't mean to, thankyou to all of you who have touched my life in the last few years I will never forget you and love you always."

Looking forward to the years ahead Rachael will continue to tour the UK as well as Australia, Asia, Europe and The United States, where she hopes to see you on a dance floor soon!

LIVE-2-DANCE!

"To dance, above all, is to enter into the motions of life. It is an action, a movement, a process. The dance of life is not so much a metaphor as a fact; to dance is to know oneself alone and to celebrate it."
