Miss Rebecca began dancing at the age of 4 wearing a blue sparkly dance dress in her very first ballet class. Although she tried many sports, including swimming, soccer, gymnastics and horseback riding, Miss Rebecca learned quickly that dancing was her true passion. She started to take jazz and hip hop classes up until the age of twelve when her journey at Diversity Dance began. After registering, she continued with ballet, jazz and hip hop, but could not resist training in more dance styles including contemporary, tap, acro, pointe, musical theatre, enrichment and lyrical. Through her dedication and drive, she worked her way up to the advanced levels in all these genres, enjoying every tendu, plié and jeté along the way.
Now, being a graduated Diversity student, Miss Rebecca has a lot to show for her seven years of both recreational and competitive classes at the studio. Not only has she received numerous awards, scholarships and mentions from competition, but she also had the privilege of travelling to Disneyland in 2012 and New York in 2019 to dance with Diversity’s competitive team. Throughout the years, her love of dance only grew which drove her to work towards her Alberta Fitness Leadership Certification which she received in June of 2019. With this certification, Miss Rebecca has gained extensive knowledge in physical literacy which she hopes to delve into further as she continues into her second year studying Kinesiology at the University of Calgary. As well, Miss Rebecca has started her certification process with Acrobatic Arts, completing her first module in August of 2019. She hopes that she can pass all of her knowledge onto her students to create a fun and safe environment in every class she teaches.
Over the years, Miss Rebecca has taught students ranging from ages 2 to 16 and has enjoyed every minute of it. She loves to watch her students grow and develop as they progress throughout the years and she is ecstatic to be teaching for her 4th year at Diversity Dance and Performing Arts. She is so excited for this coming season and cannot wait to share her love of dance with all her wonderful students, new and old!
