Rachel Ferring, originally from Dayton, Ohio, graduated summa cum laude from the Boston Conservatory in 2017. During her time at the Conservatory, she was fortunate enough to perform works by Aszure Barton, Brian Brooks, Doug Varone, Dwight Rhoden, Shapiro & Smith, Zoe Scofield, and Sidra Bell to name a few. Upon graduating from college, she spent two years training under the tutelage of Alexandra Wells as a part of the first class of Hubbard Street’s Professional Program (HS Pro). Here she was humbled to work with artists and choreographers such as Jonathon Alsberry, Adam Barruch, Peter Chu, Davide Di Pretoro, Anna Lucaciu, Elia Mrak, Jenna Pollack, and Troy Ogilvie among many others. During her time at HS Pro, she performed with Hubbard Street in their 2018 Winter Series “Danc(e)Volve” in Rena Butler’s work, III. Third, as well as Butler and Florian Lochner’s joint piece, Common Thread. Additionally, she has performed in site-specific improvisational scores curated by Kristina Isabelle as a part of Isabelle’s company, Michigan City Moves. In June 2019 she attended Springboard Danse Montreal where she performed an excerpt of Crystal Pite’s Betroffinheit in addition to Kate Hilliard’s 9 Ways. Rachel spent the 2019/2020 season as an apprentice with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and was fortunate to perform excerpts of Ohad Naharin’s Decadance, Peter Chu’s Space In Perspective: A Virtual Experience, and Robyn Mineko Williams Undercover Episode 018: Home Video. Since the virtual times of COVID-19, she has been meeting on zoom with Alexandra Wells and her fabulous Image Tech team to begin the process of becoming a certified IMAGE TECH for dancers teacher.
