Rebeccas Profile
Rebecca was initially introduced to Salsa in 2001 during her 4 year stay in Tokyo, immediately falling in love with both the music and dance. She received formal training from the internationally recognised performers and instructors Alberto Romay (Cuba), Mika Takenaga (Japan) and Mitsue Kikuta (Japan). 
She immersed herself in the world of Latin Music by working at Salsa Sudada, one of Tokyo’s most popular Salsa venues.  This experience gave her the opportunity to dance with people from Cuba, L.A, New York, Puerto Rico, The Dominican Republic, Peru, Columbia and Japan, giving her a first hand appreciation of the different styles of Salsa music and dancing, and the chance to view Salsa not just as a dance, but as a way of life and a means of expression.
Upon returning to Dunedin in 2003 she was part of the initial force behind the establishment of Salsa in Dunedin, co-founding and teaching at Salsazon School of Salsa with Alfonso Rios until mid 2005. Further teaching experience has included teaching short courses in Salsa through the University of Otago Clubs and Societies, Ladies Styling in Dunedin, and most recently, being a guest tutor at the University of Otago School of Dance.  Rebecca’s enthusiasm and enjoyment of Salsa have made her a popular social partner on dance floors throughout NZ and Sydney.
Rebecca’s classes have been described as informative, lively and well structured.  Her aim when teaching Ladies Styling is to provide the tools, techniques and confidence to allow ladies to find their own unique style.
Her main influences in Ladies Styling have been Josie Neglia (L.A), Susana Montero (U.K, Spain), Burju (Boston) and Edie the Salsa Freak (L.A).  She has been fortunate to have taken classes with all of these instructors.
Other international instructors that Rebecca has learnt from include:
Oliver and Luda (Australia), Jaime and Liz (Australia), Graeme Haney (Australia), Nestor Manuelian (Australia), Vivio and Greydis (Cuba), U-Tribe (France), Al (Liquid Silver) Espinoza and Karla (L.A), Pablo and Diana (Spain), Johnny Vasquez (Mexico), Super Mario (London), Verity Griffiths (Australia/NZ), Ryoko and Ryu (Japan), Spin (Korea), Joel and Betsy (Peru), Gino Mayute (Peru/NZ), and Victor and Burju (Boston).
