Raquel Valiente is a New York based actor and dancer, who was born and raised in the tropical paradise that is El Salvador. She holds a BFA in Dance from Adelphi University (first international student to ever be admitted into the program!) and is also a William Esper Studio grad.  Raquel can always be found trying to get discounted theater tickets, teaching tap dance to the coolest kids ever (she is founder of the tap dance program at Ballet Hispanico!), hand modeling (fun right?!), bringing incredible characters to life or exploring some part of the world every chance she gets!
