Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp is a dance artist, somatic educator, filmmaker. With a BFA in Performing Arts/Dance from Emerson College and an MFA in Choreography from California Institute of the Arts. Rose’s interests lie in integrating dance, theater, design, and media. Her desire to integrate social activism into her choreography began with her thesis, focusing on Social Constructionism as it relates to movement. In addition, she is a Certified Laban Movement Analyst (CLMA) which has rooted all of her work in somatics and body awareness. Rose’s choreography is full of weighted athleticism with a slight hint of quirkiness. She is a lover of the off-vertical and an explorer of movement that traverses 3-dimensional possibilities. Partnering work and contact improvisation naturally integrate the contemporary dance forms she investigates.
