Becky “B-Boogie” Bearse-Esqueda’s love affair with dance began at the age of three in a small studio in Concord, Massachusetts. Since then, Becky has trained in all forms of dance, from ballet to hip-hop to African, and has taught, choreographed and performed across the U.S. Becky’s diverse training inspired the founding of her own dance group, B-Boogie Dance, which breaks the mold of traditional modern dance by fusing multiple rhythmically based dance forms. Becky has presented work across the Bay at venues such as the Walt Disney Family Museum, Dance Mission, LEVYDance and CounterPULSE. Please view past works, Physical Dissent and The Pack, on YouTube.
