Founder - Rachel Withers a former dancer who trained with the Royal Ballet.
Rachel worked in the dance and theatre industry and later turned her attention to teaching before starting a family. Rachel stepped away from the world of dance to focus on her family and it was whilst on this break that she thought about how she could be involved with the dance world but still be able to focus on her children - BalletBeFit was borne. Rachel successfully built up her BalletBeFit classes at times which worked around her family. It was not long before Rachel was approached by other dancers/ fitness professionals to share her strategies as a coach and mentor.
Turning BalletBeFit into an online community in 2016 has been a real turning point and has enabled Rachel to reach out and help women have an independent business doing something they love and still have the time for their family.
