Former students join in on Rebecca’s 20th year

From humble beginnings in Maclean, Rebecca opened her studio in the Yamba RSL hall in 1999. Her first students included some mature ladies who had never tapped before; as well as some who hadn’t tapped since they were youngsters. 

Of those original eight, three ladies are still dancing at the studio in Mooli Place, where classes have been held since July 2002.

Each year after the Revolucion Dance Studio concert, the tap ladies get together for lunch. This year, to mark the 20th anniversary, the current group were joined by some of the former dancers to mark the occasion and surprise Rebecca. It was a very happy reunion and celebration.
