Becky Bearse Headshot

With roots in education and the arts, Becky is a Concord native and has had a diverse career spanning the worlds of dance, non-profit arts administration and equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging. Passionate about creating inclusive classrooms for students of all abilities, and passing along both the joy of dance and exploration of the creative process to students of all ages, Becky has taught, choreographed and performed across the United States. From 2018-2019, Becky was Faculty at InnerRhythms Dance in Truckee, California, where she taught all forms of pre-professional and recreational dance to students of all ages. Dancing since the age of three, Becky is trained in multiple dance mediums, from ballet, contemporary and jazz to Latin, African, hip-hop, breakdancing and house. Becky has trained under artists such as Dan WagonerNaby BangouraTodd Eckert, Jardy Santiago, Joh Camara and Lizz Roman, and performed with various choreographers in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

After spending two years in the studio playing with movement, Becky founded her own dance company, bebE dance, in which to share her love of fusion dance, which seeks to seamlessly integrate multiple dance forms. During this time, Becky had the honor of being a Guest Artist with various San Francisco-based residencies, such as SAFEhouseArts and LevyDANCE’s Salon Series, and presenting works across the Bay Area at venues such as the Walt Disney Family Museum, CounterPULSE’s 2nd Sundays, Works in the Works, Dance Mission’s New Choreographers’ Showcase and The Garage. Since returning to Concord, she has continued to explore the art of fusion dance, through classes and in the studio, constantly seeking new ways in which to reinvent and reinvigorate the field of dance. She encourages all, whether experienced or novice, to play, dream and move with her in the studio, and to experience the collective joy of fully embracing the power of movement.

Becky holds her B.A. in Education and Dance from Bryn Mawr College, her M. Ed in Arts Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and her M.A. in Human Resources from the Carlson School of Management.
