Classes will run every Monday and Tuesday evenings from 4pm at the Torquay Improvement Association Inc (TIA) Price Street Torquay.
Rebecca said all ages are welcome to take part in a selection of classical ballet, jazz, tap, acrobatics, breakdance and hiphop classes.
“At Seaside Dance Co, we aim to inspire each student to realise his or her own potential and are committed, to providing the highest quality dance education in a positive and encouraging learning environment,” she said.
With over 20 years’ experience in the professional dance industry and an incredible dance career, Rebecca said she was excited to launch the school in the heart of Torquay.
Rebecca began dancing at the Craigieburn School of Dance as a fouryear- old, and as an 11-year-old (along with 400 others) auditioned for the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School and was one of 20 to get in.
“I went on to study all styles of dance full time and successfully completed my VCE. It was during high school I started my teaching career and my passion grew from there. I went on to graduate from the Victorian College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Dance,” she said.
For the next few years she worked for various dance companies performing and running workshops; taught dance at multiple schools and performed on a regular basis around Melbourne for live shows, festivals and television.
For the past 10 years Rebecca has worked as a dancer and manager for Katumba Latin Entertainment and Indigenous Hip Hop Projects, a national multi-cultural arts company.
Rebecca said her focus has now turned to Seaside Dance Co. and was looking forward to passing on her knowledge to young dancers.
“Seaside caters to all ages and abilities. We aim to give our students fun and enjoyable classes whilst giving an expert education into the many disciplines of dance,” she said.
