Project Description


Rosie Herrera is a Cuban-American choreographer based in Miami whose beautifully surreal work is captivating audiences and critics nationally and creating a place not only for herself in the national dance scene, but also for Miami.

Rosie is a graduate from New World School with a BFA in Dance Performance. She has been commissioned by The Miami Light Project in association with the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing and the American Dance Festival. As a rehearsal director, co- choreographer and performer Rosie was in residency at the Chat Noir Cabaret in Miami Beach with the interdisciplinary performance ensemble Circ X.

In 2009 she was in residency at the American Dance Festival recreating her work “Various Stages of Drowning: A Cabaret” on ADF dancers. Subsequently her company was presented at the festival in 2010 and 2011 where she premiered the ADF commissioned works: “Pity Party” and “Dining Alone” to sold out audiences.

Rosie is a classically trained lyric coloratura soprano and performs with the Performers Music Institute Opera Ensemble as well as choreographs and stages operas independently throughout Miami. She has also collaborated on productions with The South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center, New World School of the Arts, Six Floor Ensemble Zoetic Stage and with theater artist Rudi Goblen as well as filmmakers Adam Reign and Lucas Leyva.
