Rosemary is a practical choreologist. She acquired her skills through years of experience as a professional dancer and teacher in South Africa and through study for a MA at the Laban Centre, London. After lecturing at the Laban Centre for several years, where she developed her unique approach to choreology Rosemary responded to invitations from other London-based institutions and dance centres abroad.
Since 1992 her work has made a distinct contribution to dance education. While her initial and particular research has been directed towards classical dance, her work is not style-bound. Currently she is in demand in both classical and contemporary dance spheres and in the performing arts in general. She is recognised in the field as being an outstanding educator and as a leader in her particular field, Rosemary is highly regarded in Europe and has gained a considerable reputation internationally.
In 2005 Rosemary returned to Laban as the Undergraduate Studies Year One Co-ordinator and is Senior Lecturer in Choreological Studies. Together with her colleagues she initiated the new Specialist Diploma in Choreological Studies: Contemporary Developments in Laban’s Principles and Practice. Her concern to encourage and develop contemporary choreological practice and practitioners means that she continues to respond to invitations from abroad.
