Rosie Herrera is a Yard Offshore Creation Residency Artist

Rosie Herrera's newest work, Make Believe, investigates religious upbringing and spiritual practices – how our introduction to various belief systems at an early age influences the ways in which we experience romantic love. The work explores religious spectacle and how these rituals are unified by themes of paganism, magic, and celebrity worship. Joined by collaborators David Brick (dramaturg) and Maiko Matsushima (set/costume design consultant), Rosie Herrera takes us on a magical journey through make believe and the intersections of belief, faith, and love.


Rosie Herrera Dance Theatre is 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. Since their discovery in 2009 by Charles Reinhart after the premiere of Various Stages of Drowning: A Cabaret, the company has 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 Baryshnikov Arts Center NYC, the company is a force to be reckoned with in the national dance scene.

Rosie Herrera is a Cuban-American dancer, choreographer and artistic director of Rosie Herrera Dance Theater in Miami. She is a graduate from New World School with a BFA in Dance Performance. She has been commissioned by The Miami Light Project, The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Dance Place, Maui Arts and Cultural Center, Ballet Hispanico, Moving Ground Dance Theater, Houston Met Dance and the American Dance Festival (ADF) in 2010, 2011, 2013, 2016 and 2018.
