Hey, I'm Rebecca Brightly. I write the popular blog Dance World Takeover, where I help newbie dancers problem-solve issues of learning to dance. I've spent 8 years learning about the body and how it moves, and I absolutely love sharing my unique knowledge and discoveries. A sampling of my unconventional educational sources: Massage and structural integration school, ballet and modern dance, the Alexander Technique, Cal Newport’s blog and books, and of course lots of lindy hop!
Hope you enjoy the book!
