Rachel Silver is an independent dance artist, teacher, and writer based in Vancouver, British Columbia. She has a BA in Visual Culture and Performance Studies from Simon Fraser University’s School for Contemporary Arts. Her professional dance training in commercial and contemporary styles led her to England where she obtained a Diploma in Dance Studies from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2014. In the UK, she apprenticed and toured with both Springs Dance Company and urban-contemporary fusion the REbirth Network. In 2015, she co-choreographed This Thin Place, a collaborative dance show that performed in both Vancouver and Campbell River. Most recently, she performed with Vancouver’s plastic orchid factory in their performance/installation Digital Folk.

Rachel was an intern with The Dance Current between May 2016 through August 2016.
