Rebecca joined Touch Compass in 2013 as the Youth Tutor, planning and facilitating inclusive classes for dancers ages 13-24. She enjoys encouraging everyone to try dance, learn new skills, develop relationships and connections and, most of all, have fun. Rebecca also revels in leading her students to more complex skill development and performance opportunities.
Rebecca trained with Christchurch’s Hagley Dance Company before gaining a Bachelor of Performing Screen Arts from Unitec. She has also completed a range of post graduate studies in Special Education and Health Sciences (Creative Expressive Therapies). In 2014 she completed a Master of Creative and Performing Arts in Dance Studies from Auckland University.
Rebecca says she gets many rewards from her work with Touch Compass, the most significant being “the company holds many of the values that are important to me in dance and life”.
