Jackson Becker
Jackson BeckerDance Teaching Artist
Jackson Becker, originally from Columbus, Ohio, has been dancing since the mere age of 5. He has always had a love for dance ever since he could remember, and while it started with ballet, he later turned to musical theatre dance and tap. You may have seen Jackson as Nicely Nicely Johnson in Guys and Dolls, Cosmo in Singing in The Rain with SCAPA, where he was truly able to exercise this passion of tap. Jackson also got the opportunity to film the first tap choreography DVD for iTheatrics in 2017, along with Broadway choreographers and performers. He looks forward to guiding the Spark students of Leeds Center for the Arts in their creative paths over this next year.
