Rebecca recently moved to Edmonton from the capital city of Alaska. She grew up learning classical ballet and started a teaching internship when she was 14. Over the years Rebecca has choreographed 4 full-length ballet productions, starred as the principal dancer in 3 ballets, and has served as an Assistant Artistic Director for youth programs for over 8 years. She has attended the Dance Teacher Summit in New York, been a Certified Group Fitness Instructor, taken YogaFit classes for teachers, and has coached dance teams. She has taught jazz, ballet, lyrical, acro, and creative movement. Rebecca has been working in the field of child education for over 9 years and is currently pursuing a Masters in English at the University of Alberta. She is passionate about dance because she found it empowering as a child to conquer new steps and make new friends with common interests. She hopes to help teach kids how to have fun, confidence, and good technique. She also wants to share her love of dance, even the goofy side, because to her, it’s about the joy dance brings.
