Instructor's Bio

Rebecca began studying Argentine Tango in 1999 in Eugene, Oregon while pursuing her BFA. Since then her feet have never stopped dancing!! From 2000 Rebecca has lived and taught within numerous communities in the USA, and around the world. She worked for many years with Eric Lindgren through the MIT Tango Club. Since leaving Boston she has been teaching and living in Berlin. You can find her at the big Tango schools of Berlin: Mala Junta and Tangotanzenmachtshoen.
