She’s been dancing professionally since she was seven and started Street Dance at 11. She and her sisters were always doing performances for their family at home before that though.
Rosina – who’s trained in Afro Contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz, Commercial, Female Dancehall Popping, Breaking, Capoeira, Locking, House, Jazz, Ballet, Whacking and Improvisation – picks up the story.
She said: “I’ve artists in my family, back a few generations. Since I was very young, I’ve been active and enjoyed swimming, gymnastics and art. I was inspired to learn street dance after watching Step Up 2 the film and started to create my own choreography.
“I’d walked past The Workshop in the Vancouver Quarter before and thought ‘this is the first building I’d seen in King’s Lynn that provided performing arts classes’.
“There are so many reasons why I love performing and dance. Dance has built my confidence a great deal. It helped to elevate my self-esteem and be more attuned to my body.
“Dancing to music has been a source of expression, release and joy that’s so central to feeling aligned and fulfilled in my life. A performance is a window into the artist’s thoughts and feelings. I love sharing my truth, a struggle or a powerful alter ego through movement, and taking the audience on that journey with me.”
Rosina’s shared dance in a number of ways. At the start of her career she was focused on Hip Hop and Contemporary movement.
She’s performed at Breakin’ Convention with Myself UK Dance at Sadler’s Wells, and Eyes Closed, Ears Covered with Myself UK Dance at The Bunker Theatre. Her choreographic work Bare was showcased at Collide Festival.
In the next few months you’ll see her as fitness host on the YouTube channel Pulped after gathering a 128k following across social media.
Rosina said: “I’m focused on different things for each group. Some of which are building confidence, movement quality, freestyle and performance techniques.
“I believe it’s important for young people to develop confidence and self-esteem, as it reflects in everything that they do and will go on to do in life. Having a movement practice is a great way to feel a part of something bigger and socialise in a creative space.”
