Rose has been dancing since her pre-school years, classically training in RAD, BBO, IDTA, ISTD, and NZAMD. By age 13 she had been accepted into the full-time dance programme at the Christchurch-based National Ballet & Dance School (a.k.a. International Ballet Academy). Rose had the privilege of being tutored by many dance legends including Sir Russell Kerr, Ann Judson, Fiona Tonkin, Michelle Robinson and Sir Jon Trimmer, and performing in classic ballets such as Swan Lake, Cinderella and The Nutcracker.
In 2008 Rose moved to Palmerston North to pursue university studies and discovered the wonderful performing arts community the region has to offer. Palmerston North provided the opportunity to dive head-first into her first teaching position and she has not looked back since.
Rose proudly achieved Distinction for all vocational ballet levels, including Advanced 2, and holds IDTA teaching qualifications in both ballet and jazz. Additionally, Rose has become a Certified Progressive Ballet Technique teacher, and a Certified Acrobatic Arts instructor delivering Acro and Conditioning classes with precision and safety. Rose excels at delivering personalised tuition in a class setting, ensuring all students receive the best possible experience, and is highly focused on achieving results and success for our students.
