Mentorship: 1 Hour with Rebekah Leach
Founder of AerialDancing.com, Born to Fly Productions, and AerialWorks Castle Rock, Rebekah wears many hats in the aerial industry. Her background in dance (ballet, modern, hip hop, and salsa to name a few), rhythmic gymnastics, and math education informs her unique aerial curriculum. Rebekah's teaching specialty is developing curriculum for pre-beginners, or students who lack the upper body strength to do traditional beginning work. She also has developed a beginning and intermediate curriculum focused on theory and solving problems, so students truly understand the apparatus. Her goal is to train people to be innovators. She is passionate about helping people connect to their own bodies, integrate the body with the mind, and find one's own dance.
