Rebecca Rasmussen spent her life studying the body through the world of dance. She toured internationally for over 11 years with the dance company MOMIX, performing in sold out theaters all over the world. As a Dance Captain in the company she also 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. Rebecca has collaborated in many different works within the company, run hundreds of rehearsals, and truly grown as an artist, mentor, and professional during the years she was there full time.
While dance remains a major passion, over time Rebecca’s interests have shifted to include self-care and overall well being. She is a RYT 200 hour graduate of the Kripalu School of Yoga and Health. She now studies and shares the practice of yoga with the desire to help others love and care for their bodies through movement and exploration. Yoga has provided her with a space for personal growth and transformation while still feeding her love for movement and the body.
Building upon these explorations, Rebecca is pursuing her passion for self care and wellness by helping fellow dancers overcome emotional obstacles within themselves that are limiting their ability to achieve their goals. She has 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. Rebecca believes emotional support is just as important as physical support on the path to truly becoming successful in the dance world today.
Rebecca was born and raised in Moorpark, CA where dance entered into her life early through her mom, who was a professional dancer and dance teacher. Rebecca trained at Pam Rossi’s Dance Ten and Moorpark College where she studied with Dennon and Sayhber Rawles, Denise Gibson and Lisa Lock. Rebecca has studied a wide range of movement throughout her life, but Ballet, Modern, Jazz, and improvisational are the most prominent styles she has studied. She also enjoys all forms of ballroom styles and tap dance. At the Boston Conservatory Rebecca performed works by Paul Taylor, Jose Limon, Michael Folkine, and Murray Louis. She was chosen to perform in the Murray Louis Tribute at Hunter College in 2005 under the direction of Murray Louis and Tito del Saz.
