Rebecca Weisser grew up in San Francisco where she has been teaching dance to adults and children since 1994. She holds a B.A. from UC Santa Cruz in Politics, and studied Modern Dance throughout college. Her love for movement has led her to study many diverse forms of dance, including African-Haitian, Hip Hop, Salsa, Hula, Modern, Kathak, and Jazz both in San Francisco and New York. She continues to learn new dance forms to teach her students and believes that the skills children learn through the arts can be used in other areas of their lives. Rebecca has been the Community Liaison for The Marsh Youth Theater since 2004, bringing economically disadvantaged children to performing arts classes. She is also the Executive Director of Moving Beyond Productions which provides cross-cultural arts education and performance opportunities for students. Each year, Rebecca has a contingent in Carnival San Francisco and organizes her Hip Hop/World Dance group to perform at various community events throughout the year. She performed with and was Co-director of Mixtiso Latin Hip Hop from 2002-2010, helping organize and choreograph pieces for many shows and venues. In 2006, she was the choreographer for the cabaret Terminally Female. As well, Rebecca teaches, choreographs, and produces shows for The Marsh Youth Theater and many schools throughout the San Francisco Unified School District.
