Actually, her first dance class ended in tears – an evil 4 year old pinched her, made her cry, and abruptly ended her short tenure as a dancer. That is, until she saw a bellydancer at the Renaissance Festival in 2003, and was immediately enamored. She enrolled in classes almost immediately and her life has never been the same.  Becca is one of the founding members of Troupe ‘Hip’notic, which has morphed in style and format since it’s beginning. She loves the collaborative artistic process that has developed over the years, and is especially thankful for the friendship and support found among the amazing women of this troupe.
