Rebecca Boreham

 

 

Rebecca Boreham’s interest in dance started at the age of 5 years old in a ballet class at the YMCA in Sugar Land, TX. At around the age of 8, Becky moved to Fort Bend Academy of Dance in Sugar Land to study ballet under Dianne Jarrell and Michael Banigan. At twelve, she was invited to join the pre-professional ballet company Balletforte as an apprentice. Over the next few years, she was promoted to a Principal dancer.

 

 

Becky has performed many different roles in The Nutcracker; Sugar Plum Fairy, Dew Drop Fairy, Snow Queen, Clara, Mirliton, and Russian to name a few. She also performed many different roles within Balletforte’s Spring shows; Giselle, Carabosse, Black Swan, Lilac Fairy, Bluebird, Songbird, Peasant Pas de Deux, etc. As a Principal dancer with Balletforte, Becky attended and performed in many of Michael Banigan’s original contemporary choreography works at Regional Dance America's festivals in various locations in Canada and America.

 

 

Throughout Becky’s years of dancing she has been accepted to prestigious ballet schools including The Royal Ballet School, American Ballet Theatre, Joffrey New York, and Joffrey Midwest. She has also been awarded full scholarships to Craft of Choreography in Orem, UT and to the San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet in San Antonio, TX.

 

 

After sustaining an injury that changed the course of Becky’s dance career, she decided to pursue another passion. In 2014, Becky began attending The College of Science at Texas A&M University. In May of 2017, Becky obtained a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and worked as a Zookeeper at The Houston Zoo before moving to Colorado Springs, CO in February 2019. In April of 2018, Becky went back to the world of dance to teach and share her love for dance.
