Rachel and Katie dancing

Rachel Wada’s passions are music, dance and art. She also paints at the Infusion Gallery in Troutdale. Thank you so much to her wonderful caregiver, Katie Regan, for helping Rachel with her dancing.

Black & white photo of IAVDC dancers Rachel E and Rachel W (left and right) dancing together in a brightly lit studio. Rachel E has black leggings, a black skirt, a black t-shirt with a big white skull printed on it, and black fingerless gloves with skulls on them; her shoulder-length hair is down, falling over her face. She's dancing in profile, facing right, right arm raised, slightly bent, and making a claw shaped hand motion to Rachel W. Rachel W is dancing in her wheelchair, in black pants and a black long-sleeved shirt under a white tunic with black printed bones on it, hair piled atop her head, right arm behind her and left arm bent and raised; her head is tilted over her right shoulder and she's smiling.

Rachel E and Rachel W, punks!

When she is not dancing or painting, she loves hanging out with her friends at her favorite restaurants and coffee shops!
