Rose Mitchell

Expertise

Theatre Dance, Contemporary Dance

A native Austinite, Rose graduated from the University of Texas in Austin with a degree in Theatre/Dance in 2008. She performed and choreographed in musicals, dance companies and straight plays all around the Austin area for the following nine years, including multiple shows with Zilker Theatre Productions, the Austin City Showgirls, and the Wimberley Players. She then moved to Chicago where she danced professionally in contemporary jazz companies and musicals. Upon her return to Austin in August of 2018, she jumped straight into choreographing the musical Tommy for City Theatre and performing with the Dance Project, a contemporary company for whom she still dances. She had the exciting opportunity to choreograph Heathers for Southwestern University in February of 2019 and was subsequently invited to teach Theatre Dance. She immensely enjoys teaching her students each day and hopes she brings as much joy to them as they do to her.
