Becca Ehlert began teaching dance in 2010. Her first experience with dance was in middle school, where she attended the Homeschool Celtic Dance in Kalamazoo. After finding a deeply rooted love for dance, Becca took an unconventional training route to becoming a dancer and instructor, and started teaching Irish Square Dancing. In 2012, she branched into Ballroom and Old English Country Dancing through the Berrien Springs Parent Partnership. Over the years, she has received instruction from several studios, including Dance Arts, and has taken additional classes in Jazz, Ballet, and Hip Hop.
In 2016, she returned to Berrien Springs Parent Partnership and taught a semester of Old English Country Dancing, where the class performed in two different re-enactments. She has had the privilege of choreographing dances for River Valley High School’s performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and her most recent achievement was choreographing a Court Dance and a Father/Daughter Dance for a Quinceanera. She has dance called, given private instruction, performed in, and choreographed dances at numerous weddings, balls, re-enactments, musicals, and private events over the last 11 years.
Becca’s philosophy is that it’s never too late to learn dance and to do the things you love; all you need is a willing spirit to try, and to have fun along the way! She looks forward to her first year teaching at Dance Arts!
