Tango Instructor at PDX Tango, Rebekah first started tango in 2008 under the instruction of local milonguero Robert Hauk at her high school. After graduating and moving out of state to a community that had practically no tango she was ecstatic to return to Portland in 2012 to find that tango could be danced and studied every day; which she did for the next year, as well as traveled all over the US to dance socially and study with highly-respected national and Argentine instructors. She began teaching around Portland in 2014 at Portland State University, Pureheart Yoga, and local milongas. Occasionally she is flown out to DJ at tango festivals and marathons around the country. Her focus is on the technical and musical aspects of the dance and how we can use them to connect as individuals and partners.
Rebekah joined the PDX Tango team in 2016 where she offers weekly group and private classes. More information at pdxtango.com.
