ROSEMARIE MIENTKA

Rosemarie grew up in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. She became a Mentor/Apprentice with ARC Dance Company in Seattle, WA, in 2009. She moved to Nashville in 2011 to join Nashville Ballet 2 Training Division where she began studying with Banning Bouldin.

Rosemarie performed in Ritual—Bouldin’s site-specific work created for the Nashville Ballet 2 during the 100th Anniversary of Shelby Park in October 2012—as well as the premiere of New Dialect's MultiLingual at OZ Nashville in August 2014, Belinda McGuire's creation Incorporeus in December 2014, New Dialect's Murmuration in March 2015, Trisha Brown’s “Planes” installation in May 2015 and New Dialect’s performance of Souvenirs in March 2016.

In the fall of 2014 Rosemarie was invited to participate in New Dialect's Choreographers LAB series. During her three week residency, she worked with our company members to create a new ensemble work, Turns to Blue, which was partly inspired by the visual art of Wassily Kandinsky, the German abstract expressionist.  Turns to Blue premiered at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts on November 16, 2014, during the Center's Kandinsky retrospective.

In the summer of 2015, Rosemarie was one of six choreographers chosen to participate in the San Francisco Conservatory's choreographic summer residency.
