HI! I am Rebecca!

A little about me and my journey to where I am now…

I spent my life studying the body through the world of dance. I toured internationally for over 11 years with the dance company MOMIX, performing all over the world. As a Dance Captain in the company I learned how to be a compassionate leader and accrued skills to run a show in many different venues and overcome obstacles while on the road. I have collaborated in many different works within the company, ran hundreds of rehearsals, and truly grew as an artist, mentor, and professional during the years I was there full time.

While dance remains a major passion of mine, over time my interests have shifted to include self-care and overall well being. Through the studies as a RYT 200 hour graduate of the Kripalu School of Yoga and Health I now study and share the practice of yoga with the desire to help others love and care for their bodies through movement and exploration. Yoga has provided me with a space for personal growth and transformation while still feeding my love for movement and the body.

Building upon these explorations, I am pursuing my passion for self care and wellness by helping fellow dancers overcome emotional obstacles within themselves that are limiting their ability to achieve their goals. I created a Mentorship Program to bring resources and awareness to those in need of overcoming their fears, insecurities, or those who just need a little guidance to get them to the next level of their career. I believe emotional support is just as important as physical support on the path to truly becoming successful in any path you choose.

Al little more history, I was born and raised in Moorpark, CA where dance entered into my life early through my mom, who was a professional dancer and dance teacher. I trained at Pam Rossi’s Dance Ten and Moorpark College where I studied with Dennon and Sayhber Rawles, Denise Gibson and Lisa Lock. I have studied a wide range of movement throughout my life, but Ballet, Modern, Jazz, and improvisational are the most prominent styles I have studied. I also enjoy all forms of ballroom styles and tap dance. To pursue my passion for dance I moved to Boston to study at the Boston Conservatory. There I had the privilege of performing works by Paul Taylor, Jose Limon, Michael Folkine, and Murray Louis. I was chosen to perform in the Murray Louis Tribute at Hunter College in 2005 under the direction of Murray Louis and Tito del Saz. Graduating with a BFA in dance in 2006 I joined MOMIX a few months later.
