Rebecca’s Tango journey began in 1999 while pursuing her BFA at the University of Oregon.
20 years later, and her feet have never stopped dancing!! From 2000 Rebecca has lived and taught
within numerous communities in the USA, and around the world. Now, after 5 years teaching in Berlin,
she is back in the USA. As a teacher Rebecca has always believed in the transformative process
of learning Tango and is fueled by the metamorphosis of her students. She offers accessible,
compassionate guidance, combined with a deep understanding of both following and leading, music,
and ever-evolving technique. As a DJ she strives to bring a warm atmosphere to the Milonga,
encouraging seamless tandas and easy dancing.
