RD Artistic Faculty
Rachelle Vermette’s path to teaching began at age fifteen when she was told by Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet School teacher Sarah Baker that she had all the makings of a great mentor. Ms. Vermette followed that advice and has been sharing her talent and expertise with students of the RWB School Recreational Division since 1998.
A graduate of the RWB School Teacher Training Program, Ms. Vermette holds her Associate Diploma from Cecchetti Canada, and teaches a variety of classes including creative movement, pre-primary ballet and adult classes. During her time with the RWB School, she has taught in the Satellite Program, Quantum Program, Professional Division Summer Session, Intensive Training Program, and Adult Summer Dance and Summer Dance Intensive programs. Ms. Vermette has also been involved teaching pedagogy and intermediate classes at the RWB’s Teacher Training Program.
Ms. Vermette has enjoyed sharing her love of dance while guest teaching at various dance schools throughout Winnipeg and adjudicating numerous festivals throughout the prairies. Her former students can be found performing everywhere from Broadway to Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet Company.
