About the author

Becca Weber for thINKingDANCE

Becca Weber is always asking questions. Usually, these investigate where the body meets the brain—where dance and Somatics intersect. She is a TA and MFA Candidate in Dance at Temple University. Becca holds a Master’s degree in Dance & Somatic Well-Being from the University of Central Lancashire. As director of Somanaut Dance, her choreography has been presented at various venues in Philadelphia, New York, Georgia, Delaware, and the UK. She has performed for many independent choreographers in Philadelphia, including Ellie Goudie-Averill (Stone Depot Dance Lab), Eun Jung Choi, Michael T. Roberts, Danielle Greene, and others. Her research has been published in the Journal of Dance and Somatic Practices. Rebecca is an associate editor for the journal Dance, Movement and Spiritualities and assistant editor of the forthcoming book, Dance, Somatics and Spiritualities: Contemporary Sacred Narratives.i»¿ In short, she loves to play with people, space, ideas, and words. thINKingDANCE focuses on the Philadelphia area’s professional dance groups, that is, those with a toehold of a few years’ experience, plus some of the aspiring ones. With a hefty population of individual artists and groups, our priority is to give them coverage, along with touring companies performing here, and an occasional glance at TV dance contests or other popular and participatory forms.
