Rachel and Luke Hunt (pictured right) are passionate about the Arts and their community. Together, they own and manage Dance Across Cleburne located at 210 N. Main Street. Rachel has 20 years of experience as a dance instructor and has won numerous awards and competitions across the United States.
Rachel Hunt has been dancing all her life. Like a lot of little girls, Rachel studied ballet, jazz & tap off and on at several studios in the Fort Worth area.
When she was 13, she auditioned for the performing company at Scarborough Faire Renaissance Festive in Waxahachie, and was cast as a member of the English Country Dance Troup – a position she held for 5 seasons.
As a teenager, she attended the Creative Arts Theatre School (CATS) in Arlington, studying dance and theatre and appearing in regular pubic performances.
Meanwhile, Rachel was also accepted into the Professional Youth Conservatory (a private performing arts high school in Fort Worth) where she studied singing, theatre and dance.
By the age of 17, Rachel was dancing in 2 amateur dance companies, assisting her ballet teacher, and leading Scarborough’s Country Dance Troup as a Master Performer.
After high school she moved to California where she continued with both amateur and professional theatre, and even a little radio work.
While in California, she met her husband Luke. A Cal State San Bernardino Theatre graduate, Luke was involved in local radio, theatre and film, so it’s not surprising that Rachel and Luke should meet through mutual friends.
Together, Rachel and Luke continued to pursue music, theatre, film and television work and started a mobile DJ company as they struggled to support their young family.
