    Rachel Feinerman

    Simonson Technique


    Rachel Feinerman began her dance training at Barnard College. In 1996 she discovered Dance Space and continued training and teaching there. She has performed with Laurie De Vito & Dancers since 1999 and has also been a member of Daria Fain’s Human Behavior Explorers, and Ricardo Gomez Dance Theatre. She has danced for Aynsley Vandenbroucke, Wilson Mendieta, Sita Mani, Isabel Gotzkowsky, Sakura Shimada, Gail Accardi, Suki John, Yael Levy, Marjon van Grunsven, Katiti King, and Diane McCarthy. Photo and film projects include Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe, Daria Fain’s film Clocks and Clouds, and Stephanie Matthews’ series “Dance: A Study of Movement and Fluidity.” She has worked with visual artists Griselda Healy, Brookie Maxwell and Kelvin Robertson. She was featured in Dance Teacher Magazine, demonstrating Laurie De Vito's technique.

    Rachel’s choreography has been performed at Gitler &___ Gallery, Queens College, Gibney, Dance New Amsterdam, Green Space, WAX, Dance Space Center, Evolving Arts, Makor, Greenwich House Theater, and Barnard College. She was on faculty at Dance Space/Dance New Amsterdam from 1999- 2013 and Gibney from 2013-2020 and has also taught at Barnard College, Peridance, Mark Morris, Adelphi College, 3rd Ward and the Educational Alliance.

    In 2014, Rachel co-founded and choreographed for New Dance Collective--a performance education company providing adult dancers, of beginner through advanced levels, with the opportunity to work with established choreographers to deepen their dance knowledge and provide performance growth opportunities.

    In 2021, Rachel started studying at The Kane School at Kinected for her Pilates certification and is currently teaching pilates at Kinected, Gibney and provides anatomy and injury prevention workshops to dancers.

    Class Description:

    Rachel Feinerman's class uses a Simonson warm-up which is a comprehensive and anatomically-based technique that prepares the body to dance with awareness and safety. Influenced by the various movement styles she has utilized throughout her years of performance, Rachel's class offers students the opportunity to strengthen technique and performance quality in a fun and relaxed environment. Rachel's choreography emphasizes lush movement, spinal articulation, musicality, and honesty in performance.
