     At 26, Rachel Howard was the youngest dance critic writing for a major metropolitan newspaper. Formerly a staff writer on dance and books for the San Francisco Examiner, she has also covered arts and culture for the Orange County Register and the Santa Barbara Independent, and contributed to the Village Voice, Dance Magazine, and The Dancing Times (UK). She currently contributes reviews to the San Francisco Chronicle.  After earning dismal grades during high school and giving up on the idea of college, Rachel entered a statewide writing contest sponsored by the University of California at Santa Barbara on a lark and won first place. UCSB waived its GPA requirements and granted Rachel a fellowship. Rachel spent her senior year abroad at the University of Londonís Kings College, and graduated summa cum laude.
