Born in Perth, WA, Rosie discovered her love of dance in ballet classes at the age of 3. An obvious passion for movement led her to Dance Central where she continued training under the guidance of Gabrielle Cronan and expanded a range of performance experience in ballet, lyrical, flamenco, jazz and hip-hop, before continuing into intensive ballet training at Stevens Dance Academy. Rosie explored higher levels of Classical and Contemporary dance as she progressed to the Certificate II in Dance at the Western Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), which then led to her BA in Dance. During this time she was granted the opportunity to undertake a placement with Sydney Dance Company and Wicked! The Musical, as well as a semester-long exchange at the State University of New York, Purchase College.
After her experiences outside of Perth; seeing world class companies and learning from highly influential dance teachers, choreographers and artists, Rosie was determined to take her career to an international platform and moved to London where for the past two years she completed her Masters in Dance Performance (graduating with Distinction) and toured the UK and Europe with Transitions Dance Company, based at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. She is greatly excited to be back in Perth, and in particular at Dance Central, to be able to bring some of the amazing experiences gained overseas to the new generation of dancers!
