Hey! I’m Rachael, Dance Captain for Totally Tina and a veteran. I joined the family almost 5 years ago and in my time I’ve seen the show grow and  evolve soo much (and so has the Tina whiplash). I refer to us as a family, because that’s exactly what we are. I’ve made life long friends with this crazy bunch, and they’re stuck with me whether they like it or not.

I love nothing more than shaking, shimmying and whipping my hair with the rest of the gang (well Jimmy doesn’t have much to whip 😉 Over the years I’ve had the chance to perform in some amazing shows across the UK and Europe including Ireland, Mallorca, Portugal, Holland and Spain.

A highlight for me has to be the amazing festivals I’ve had the honour of being a part of. Hengevelde, Glastonbudget and Tribfest. When I’m not Tinaing you can usually find me in the studio sharing my knowledge and passion with the next generation of dancers.

But if I’m not there, I’m probably jumping into boxes and disappearing as a magician’s assistant or dancing with fire. Fav dance routine – well if the venue allows me to release my inner pyromaniac it’s gotta be hero

Funniest gigs.  –  The one where we got upstaged by a rotund lady doing the splits on the dance floor or the one where Justine sacked us half way through a show for 2 men from the audience. The list is endless hahaha!!

Fav costumes – feathers obviously haha. Fav gig – glastonbudget 2015. Funniest gig – oh God, so many….. Simply the bread.
