hi, i'm rachel. i'm a creative human based in houston who uses dance and media as a tool for expression, healing, and discovery.

About Me

hi, i'm rachel redding. i consider myself to be an artistic jack of all trades. my passions lie in dance, photography, art, filmmaking, and personal development.

i have been creating art for as long as i can remember. i am so grateful my mom put me in dance and art classes as a child. i grew up fortunate enough to attend public schools with amazing fine arts programs that nurtured my interests in the arts and i am a huge advocate for arts funding in public education.

as a dancer i have been training and performing locally in houston for over 10 years. i have had the honor of training and performing with many local dance organizations such as soreal dance studio, soundbox studios, noblemotion dance, metdance, houston city dance, dance houston, project home dance, and lamar dance theater. my favorite styles of dance are modern, contemporary, jazz, and hip hop.

as a choreographer i have been presenting my own work since i was a teenager. i have presented several works through lamar high school, the erjcc, dance source houston, and the university of houston. i also have begun exploring creating dances for camera which can be found on my youtube channel.

as a photographer i specialize in portrait photography, headshots, and stylized dance photography. in my free time i love experimenting with 35mm film.

as an artist i specialize in jewelry making, graphic design, and illustration. i have always been a visual learner and find so much joy in creating works of art as a means of healing and expression.

as a human i strongly believe in living and healing with authenticity and compassion and try to apply this to everything i do in my life.

Work

i am currently interested in creating dances for stage and screen. i use dance, photography, and film as a way to understand the world around me and my place in it. I am interested in starting conversations and fostering a sense of community with artists and non artists alike about what it means to be alive and to make art.
