Owner & Director
Rebecca Walker Reed
My name is Rebecca Walker Reed or "Miss Becca" as my students and parents know me and I'm the owner/director of Just Dance located in the Belle View Shopping Center. We are a recreational dance studio that focuses on serious training for the young dancer. Our classes are for dancers ages 3-13 years old in the genres of ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, pointe, and musical theatre. I was born and raised in Alexandria, VA and I adore this area. I started dancing at age 3 and haven't stopped since! I danced and performed through elementary school, highschool and college. I participated at my dance studio, Dancensations, from age 3-19 years old. I performed in musical theatre productions, varsity cheer at West Potomac, jazz dance clubs at JMU, classes in Modern, Ballet, folk dance and African Dance, and the Dukettes, the official dance team of James Madison University. I was awarded All American Dancer in 2009. After graduating James Madison University with a degree in Communication, I decided to finally pursue teaching dance full time. I started teaching dance at age 15 in local summer camps where we offered acro, cheer, and dance camps to children. I continued teaching every summer in highschool and college. As an adult I have furthered my study in teaching dance through teacher certification programs such as Dance Masters of America Teacher training school and the Cecchetti Method of ballet. My goal is to provide the best quality instruction for my students to learn the most and become the best dancer they can be in a positive and fun environment.
I am a former student from Just Dance. I started teacher assisting at a very young age and quickly began teaching my own classes. During the years, I have won numerous awards and scholarships at dance competitions and workshops through Cecchetti Council of America, Dance Master of America and American Ballet Theatre. I became a member of the Cecchetti Council of America. I am certified through grade 5/ Elementary in Cecchetti Council of America. I attend teacher training workshops to advance myself. I am a talented teacher and always ready to spread her love of dance to our students!
