Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp's choreographic work with inFluxdance and SirensProof Films has been featured internationally for the past 14 years and continues to flourish with electricGrit dance. She has been selected for multiple residencies and performance projects across the country. In 2012 her work was highlighted in an art installation centering around Dance and Social Change at the Rochester Contemporary Art Center. Between 2016-2021, her work has toured to various festivals including Assemble Festival in Detroit, MI, Southern Vermont Dance Festival, Richmond Contemporary Dance Festival, Rochester International Fringe Festival, MAD Festival, Vision of Sound, and Dances at MuCCC. Most recently, she was selected as the recipient of the 2020 Western NY Choreographers’ Initiative Award, sponsored by NYS Dance Force. Rose is co-founder of Artists Coalition for Change Together (ACCT), an organization founded in 2016 as a way to engage dancer-citizens in Rochester and beyond. In 2017, she received a grant from the Rochester Center for Community Leadership to spearhead an initiative using dance to foster collaborative relationships across various communities. Since then, her work as a community-engaged educator and artist has deepened. She teaches with a focus on the dancer-citizen and creates with an emphasis on community engagement. Rose continues to perform and present her creative research internationally with a focus on dance as an agent of change. Currently, she is exploring metaphor as it relates to socio-political art making and bodies of resistance. She is an associate professor at the University of Rochester in the Program of Dance and Movement.
