Rosie is a professional circus artist, specialising in aerial hoop (lyra). She is also experienced in silks, rope, trapeze, contortion, and most recently, enjoys experimenting in partner acrobatics.
Coming from a musical & theatrical family, Rosie trained in dance and drama from an early age. She studied ballet, tap and modern jazz at Adele's Dance School from the age of 3, and in her teens was a member of the National Youth Theatre. At 18 she discovered her extreme flexibility during her first yoga class and henceforth determined to bend herself into increasingly extraordinary positions.
She acheived a First in English Literature from Sussex University, followed by a season in the cast of the Corfu City Dancers (2006) where a fellow dancer introduced her to dance-acro. Back in her hometown London she discovered the Dance-Based Acrobatics course at the National Centre for Circus Arts, and went on to complete her professional training, graduating with a BA in Circus Arts. in 2010.
Since being captivated by the wonderful world of circus, her skills have taken her around the globe, including Australia, the Middle East, Asia, Central America, Europe and throughout the UK. She works in a wide range of settings, from large scale corporate & private events, to festivals, children's theatre, and intimate cabarets. Highlights thus far include starring as the Little Mermaid in Metta Theatre's circus musical, pole-dancing in Anna Nicole at the Royal Opera House, modelling for Stella McCartney's Aerial Yoga collection at London Fashion Week, and sharing a stage with Lady Gaga in Delhi! 2018 included a number of TV appearances for the BBC, Channel 4 and National Geographic. You can currently catch Rosie in Cbeebies Thumbelina on BBC iplayer.
In 2015 Rosie took time out from performing to become a mother for the first time (although she was still spinning in the air at 8 months pregnant!). She is now busy juggling the demands of her career with the demands of motherhood, which is a constant balancing act! Thankfully she has a very supportive family, who enable her to follow her dreams.
