Rachel Taliaferro spent more than 15 years training and performing in South Texas with the Rio Grande Valley Ballet, where she learned both Balanchine and Vaganova techniques while honing her skills under the tutelage of Russian ballerina Galina Mezentseva. After leaving the dance world to focus on a career in academic publishing, she returned to the barre through Align’s Los Angeles studios, where she rekindled her passion and appreciation for ballet as an art, sport, and practice.
