Rachel Kreilin

(15 year student)

Like all Seniors at Penn Hills High School, Rachel is busy getting that Project English Senior Thesis finished. But, this young lady also has contracts to look over, as she decides on her first Professional Dance Job. Having already been offered positions at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA and on a Celebrity Cruise Liner out of Florida, Rachel is anxiously counting down her last days of school. She continues her daily intensive training schedule at The Maryen Lorrain Dance Studio and will competes as a member of The Abby Lee Dance Company until she leaves Pittsburgh and her amateur status.

THE BIG BREAK SHE’S BEEN WAITING FOR – RACHEL KREILING WAS JUST HIRED BY WALT DISNEY WORLD TO PERFORM IN TOKYO DISNEYLAND. HER PROFESSIONAL CAREER BEGINS ON JULY 30 WITH AN 8 MONTH CONTRACT- THIS 2003 GRAD IS OFF TO A GREAT START!

Update: Rachel was invited right back to Japan to resume her role in the Encore Show at Tokyodisneyland. Although the yen was hard to pass up, she opted for an immediate replacement position on the Silver Seas Line. Rachel got the offer on a Friday and was flown to Paris and then to Portugal on Sunday. Try getting an Egypt vaccination on Memorial Weekend in Pittsburgh! She literally had four days to learn four shows and partner adagio and silks. But this quick study had the skills from her education with The Abby Lee Dance Company to master all the tracks. She better get a video of the show for us to see, because the least expensive sailing is $5,000! Ms.Kreiling has already been half way around the world and she isn’t even twenty, yet!
