Part of what makes the Rachel Neville Photography experience different from working with any other dance photographer in New York City, is our commitment to providing resources and information that help dancers achieve success throughout the audition process and the life of their dance careers.
In keeping with our commitment to provide the best resources and information for dancers, we have compiled a list of professionals from pointe shoe experts to nutrition advisers, coaches, choreographers, video pros and many more, including audition experts in the US and Europe.
Dancers, read through this list and add it to your audition and career research material. Let us know what you discover and how your experiences are working with the providers we recommend here.
Fellow dance professionals and service providers, if you would like to be considered to be included on this list, please contact us.
