Rebecca Boreham

Ballet

Becky Boreham’s interest in dance started at the age of 5 years old in a ballet class at the YMCA in Sugar Land, TX. At around the age of 8, Becky moved to Fort Bend Academy of Dance in Sugar Land to study ballet under Dianne Jarrell and Michael Banigan. At twelve, she was invited to join their pre-professional ballet company as an apprentice. Over the next several years, she was promoted to Principal dancer performing in several ballets, such as The Nutcracker, Giselle, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Cinderella, etc. As a Principal dancer, Becky performed in many of Michael Banigan’s original contemporary choreography works in various locations in Canada and America. Throughout Becky’s years of dancing, she has been accepted to prestigious ballet schools including The Royal Ballet School, American Ballet Theatre, Joffrey New York, and Joffrey Midwest. She has also been awarded full scholarships to Craft of Choreography in Orem, UT, and to the San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet in San Antonio, TX.

After sustaining an injury that changed the course of Becky’s dance career, she decided to pursue another passion. In 2014, Becky began attending The College of Science at Texas A&M University. In May 2017, Becky obtained a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and worked as a Zookeeper at The Houston Zoo before moving to Colorado Springs, CO in February 2019 to work as a Zookeeper at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

In April 2018, Becky went back to the world of dance to teach and share her love for dance where she specializes in teaching ballet technique, pointe, and variations.

When Becky isn’t teaching with Colorado Ballet Society, she is training dogs as a certified
professional dog trainer.
