Becca trained the UNC School of the Arts, and worked as a second company member at Nashville Ballet before joining New Dialect in 2013. She has performed in works by Roy Assaf, Peter Chu, Bryan Arias, Fernando Melo, Léon & Lightfoot, Marco Goecke, Yin Yue, Alex Ketley, Idan Sharabi, Belinda McGuire, and Joy Davis.
She has acted as assistant to choreographer Banning Bouldin in creative processes at Springboard Danse Montreal, Perry Mansfield, New Dialect’s Summer Intensive, and Middle Tennessee State University. She has taught master classes at Belmont University, Perry Mansfield, & SALT Contemporary Dance. She is an adjunct dance instructor at Harpeth Hall and a guest instructor for the Metro Parks Dance Division.
Becca is building a solo project to create, commission, and present experimental dance work that seeks to unpack society's perceptions about the body: the role it plays, the function it serves, and how it is valued. She is passionate about promoting physical awareness and empowerment through community engagement. To this end, Becca is spearheading an experiential movement initiative that gathers individual and community perspectives on body view to inform her ongoing research.
