The Company

Since their discovery in 2009 by Charles Reinhart after the premiere of Various Stages of Drowning: A Cabaret, Rosie Herrera Dance Theatre has quickly become a beloved fixture in the contemporary arts scene in Miami. With a whirlwind success that has taken them from sold out performances at the prestigious American Dance Festival (ADF), The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami Dade County and most recently The Baryshnicov Arts Center NYC, the company is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the national dance scene.

Known for its diverse ensemble that consists of some of Miami’ s most brilliant performers and creators ranging in genres from theater, performance art, opera, drag, and contemporary ballet, RHDT has had the priviledge of performing 2 ADF commissioned pieces and premiering them at the festival as well enjoying unprecedented success in Miami. Their NYC premiere of Various Stages of Drowning A Cabaret was said by Kayt MacMaster of BroadwayWorld.com to be “so innovative, searing and disturbing…” that it warranted “repeat viewings…” and their recent NYC premiere of Dining Alone was hailed by Deborah Jowitt as “earthy, poetic and beyond dada imaginative.”
