We are excited to announce that this August we will welcome Rebecca Collins as a guest instructor for our Summer Intensives. This year’s summer intensives will run from August 16-20, and August 23-27. Registration will open June 1st.
Rebecca entered the dance world at an early age of three years old and has never looked back. Along the way she has trained extensively in ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, hip hop and musical theatre on scholarship at some of the most prestigious dance institutions in North America, including Randolph Academy, Los Angeles’ Edge Performing Center and Millennium Dance Center. Throughout her studies, she has been grateful to have worked with some of the best dancers and choreographers in Canada and worldwide including Tyce Diorio, Nappytab, tWitch, Brain Friedman, Lorianne Gibson and Alex Wong.
Rebecca has had the privilege of dancing with Royal Winnipeg’s finest, such as Evelyn Hart, Michael Faigaux, Jesus Corrales, David Lucas and Lissette Salgado in “Stars of Canadian Ballet”. She has also danced for The Source Dance Company, as well as danced and choreographed for Velocity Dance Company. Over the past few years, Rebecca has appeared as a featured dancers and ensemble in many musicals including Kiss Me Kate, Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat, Wizard of Oz, Babes in the Wood and Fiddler on the Roof. She has also choreographed and performed in independent projects such as Vancouver’s 12 Minute Max, Dancers for a Small Stage and Merge I, II, and II with Spectra Theatre.
Most recently, Rebecca has become a BCRPA certified fitness instructor and due to the benefits of pilates for dancers, received her STOTT certification in beginner and intermediate mat. In 2012 she received her teaching certificate from the Canadian Dance Teachers Association for Jazz and Tap and has over ten years of experience as a respected dance instructor.
