Rachelle Dart grew up on stories. Mythology was in the foundation of their home, folklore hung on the walls like vines, fairy tales danced through the air and histories walked the halls. Dart interned with Liz Weir, MBE, together they received the JJ Reneaux Mentorship Award. Dart teaches theatre at Shea Middle School and is a professional storyteller, actor and fight choreographer in the Phoenix Valley. Still thriving on stories, Dart is inspired by characters who endure hardship, gritty truths and even if there is no happily ever after, remind us to be decent to each other; kindness prevails.
