As the founder and director of Bluebird Uncaged, Rebekah’s passion is to bring hope and dignity through dance. From sitting mesmerized by the Nutcracker as a toddler to training at the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education to dancing principal roles, she has experienced the power, freedom, and joy in using dance to communicate.
Rebekah is a freelance artist from Atlanta, GA and has appeared with companies such as the Fly on a Wall, Proia Dance Project and Southern Arc and most recently the Atlanta Opera in La Traviata. Some of her favorite roles include Swanhilda in Coppelia with Ballet Southeast and the Faun Couple in Alexandre Proia’s Four Seasons with Georgia Ballet. Her choreographic credits include, the opener for Passion 2014, Victoria Canal’s City Shoes music video, a short film, White Umbrella, which tells the story of a trafficking survivor from bondage to redemption, as well as the annual stage production of Sterling’s Path, a multimedia fairytale of hope.
Rebekah loves using dance to serve internationally and has travelled to countries such as Panama and Cuba to perform and conduct workshops. She also loves mentoring the next generation through teaching. Most recently she curated the Uncaged Community Dance Festival where some of Atlanta’s leading dance companies converged for a week of collaboration.
Rebekah holds a BA in Communications from Thomas Edison State University. When she's not in the studio, Rebekah enjoys spending time with her family, reading, winding down with hand-embroidery or making flower crowns.
