RACHEL PETERSEN

Director of All Stars / Instructor

Miss Rachel began dancing at the age of 5 around the Cedar Rapids community and began dancing competitively at age 9. She danced competitively throughout her elementary, middle, and high school years where her passion for dance continued to grow. At her local studio, she was part of the competing company and the Teachers Assistant Program where her love for teaching began to bloom. Through high school, Rachel competed regionally and nationally with Prairie Poms.  This is where she met Miss Tasha and began assisting the Hawk Allstars with Miss Sara! After graduating high school, Miss Rachel began teaching at Studio 360 and quickly realized her passion for teaching dance was never going to go away. She now studies at the University of Iowa and will graduate in May of 2023 with a degree in both Dance and Educational Studies and Human Relations, as well as a certificate in Entrepreneurial Management. As the Director of All Stars, you can come to Miss Rachel with questions, comments, and concerns regarding the 360 All Star program.
