Rachel Shapiro Wallace

Rachel Shapiro Wallace is a dance caller who strives to communicate the joy of dancing, whether she is calling at a dance, festival, weekend, wedding, or public event.

Having stumbled upon contra dancing in Boston, Rachel eventually realized her passion for calling after moving to Chicago. Since then she has called throughout the Midwest, Southeast, New England, and since moving to her current home in Edinburgh, Scotland, Rachel has called in Paris and the United Kingdom.

Rachel’s high-energy approach involves clear, concise walk-throughs, flexibility in teaching and programming, and working with the band to create that groove that dancers love.
