Becky & Jubilee Dancers
Fairly simple American circle dances, and a contra (Virginia
Reel). Maybe some clogging.
Jubilee's Artistic Director Becky Coulter has
over 30 years experience as a dance teacher and choreographer for
many fine arts organizations
and schools, including Academy of Dance Arts, Black Hills Dance Theater,
Metro Parks & Recreation in Nashville, TN, and Vanderbilt Dance
Group, also in Nashville. She has taught modern dance, ballet, tap,
and clogging for children and adults, and is a veteran performer with
Tennessee Dance Theater, Rocky Mt. Dancers, Kelly & Kelly Dance,
and BYU’s International Dance Company. In 1998, Becky opened
the Academy of Dance Arts in Rapid City, SD, offering an alternative
curriculum to the traditional dance school fare with a more contemporary,
creative approach to instruction and performance. Becky was a featured
dancer and founding member of the highly-acclaimed modern dance company
Tennessee Dance Theater, with glowing reviews from the Tennessean to
the New York Times. She performed works in many original roles created
by TDT artistic directors Donna Rizzo and Andrew Krichels.
Becky’s interest in folklore and traditional
dance led her to learn about and perform both international and American
At Brigham Young University, she toured and performed with the International
Folk Dance Team in the Pacific Northwest, and with the American Dance
Team in Eastern Europe, Russia and Japan. She has a B.S. degree in
Physical Education and Dance, and has done graduate work in Recreation.
