"I can't recommend Chrysalis Silk Studies enough! Rae has put a lot of thought and love into presenting this course content in a cohesive and easy-to-digest way. Her passions for movement and self-expression are so palpable throughout her lessons, and many of the skills and concepts presented can be applied to other forms of movement beyond silk fans as well. Prepare to expand and uplevel with this course!"

Meet your teacher, Rae Chrysalis

I have always been a mover. Dancing and performing since the age of 3, I am classically trained in ballet, contemporary, jazz, modern, heels, and hip hop. I danced competitively till the age of 18, and after college, became a member of various modern and contemporary dance companies and festivals in the PNW. I connected with silk fans when I entered the festival scene as a performer in 2018. It was an instant love. And I've been deepening this intimate relationship over the past 6+ years, merging my technical training with flow arts.

In addition to this school, I guide 1-on-1 mentorships as well as lead embodiment workshops and group immersions. I am a member of Tonic Tribe, performing at events and festivals around the world including Shambhala, Lightning in a Bottle, Envision, Burning Man, Northern Nights, Paradiso, Unison Festival, Bumbershoot, Cascadia NW Arts & Music Festival, and more. I am also sponsored by The Bamboo Closet.

I stand for the raw and the real. Freedom of expression in its fullest sense. Join me.
