To Rahel, being an ethical and respectful ambassador and guest to this dance form is of the the utmost importance. Part of Rahel’s mission as a teacher is to respectfully represent this dance form, educate others on issues of cultural appropriation, Orientalism, patriarchy and colonialism, and to do her part to fight against racism and bigotry within and outside the dance community.
Rahel stands for inclusion, equality, body positivity, love and kindness. Rahel priorities the health and safety of her students, and puts a strong emphasis on technique and anatomical alignment in addition to cultural representation and authenticity. Rahel wants everyone to feel welcome, to feel worthy and to feel accepted, safe, and seen. To Rahel, you are family.
Bigotry, discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, colourism, sexism, body shaming, slut shaming etc will NOT be tolerated.
All bodies are good bodies and everyone deserves equal rights and respect
