Rachael Inman's love of the dance arts has led to an eclectic background including musical theatre, ballet, aerial explorations, and traditional Middle Eastern dance. In 2010, she was awarded the Alabama State Council on the Arts Dance fellowship. Throughout her career she has danced, taught, and choreographed throughout the Southeast. Inman has explored aerial dance through her choreographic work and feels her investigation and interest in "flying" reflects a common curiosity of mankind. Over the past few years she has begun to investigate more site-specific work as she is interested in how dancers relate to space with their spirits, minds, and bodies. Inman co-founded Fuziόn Dance Artists in Sarasota, FL., and continues to advise, teach, and choreograph for the modern dance company that blends traditional modern dance with various dance forms, including Middle Eastern and aerial dance, as well as Afro-modern and technologically-infused work. Inman served as specialty faculty at Belhaven University in Jackson, Miss., teaching ballet, modern, and graduate choreography for over four years. She is the proud mother of three wonderful daughters and partner to a most supportive husband.
