Becca started Israeli dancing at the ripe old age of 5, learning from Lorraine Arcus. She joined her first Israeli dance performance troupe in 5th grade. She started teaching just a few years later, choreographed her first performance piece for kids at age 14, and directed her first school-wide Israeli dance program at age 16. During her college years at Brandeis University, Becca performed with and served as the artistic director of B'yachad, the resident Israeli dance performance troupe. She also created B'yachad's annual show. After college, Becca served as the founding artistic director of Zikukim, Sucaria, Katzefet, and Rimonim. Her choreography has been commissioned for performances with members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and at the New York City Israel Day Parade. Other troupes in which Becca has performed over the years include Tavlin, Neshika, and Parparim.

Becca started choreographing for the broader, open dancing community in 2005.

Notable quotable: "Great! Do it again."

Becca lives in Boston with her husband, Lior, and their adorable Goldendoodle, Bailey. In November 2018 she was elected Massachusetts State Senator for the Norfolk, Bristol, and Middlesex District (campaign website).
