About the Company

Company Website

Rosie Herrera Dance Theatre (RHDT) is committed to the creation and touring of world class dance theater that speaks to Miami's rich and diverse cultural community. Known for its dance and film work composed of striking imagery and visceral emotional performances, RHDT has helped redefine the nations's perspective of contemporary dance with a uniquely tropical aesthetic. Rooted in a deep commitment to collaboration, the company is composed of some of Miami's premiere performers ranging in genres from drag, theater, opera, breakdance, ballet, modern dance, and film. The company has also collaborated with a wide variety of artists, most recently being featured in the Walter Mercado documentary Mucho, Mucho Amor, which is currently being streamed on Netflix. At the helm of RHDT is Rosie Herrera, a Cuban American performer and choreographer whose movement background has its roots in urban dance and Cuban cabaret, and is influenced by her intense study of modern dance, opera, and improvisation.
