About Rachel Rizzuto
Rachel Rizzuto is a choreographer, performer, teacher, and dance writer. She has recently had the pleasure of dancing in the work of Tere O’Connor, Sara Hook, Jennifer Monson, Renata Sheppard, and Elliot Reza Emadian, following a nine-year tenure dancing for the Brooklyn-based company Mari Meade Dance Collective/MMDC. Rizzuto is a contributing writer to Dance Magazine and Dance Teacher magazine. For the last six Valentine’s Days, she has self-produced Love Sucks, a perennially-changing dance theatre work for a large cast that utilizes pop music, dance, song, and text to illustrate the inescapable heartache that accompanies falling in and out—mostly out—of love. Rizzuto earned her MFA in dance from the University of Illinois in 2021. She graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a BFA in dance and a BA in English.
