Her greatest influence, Ramon Segarra -an internationally acclaimed dancer, choreographer, teacher, ballet master and artistic director – gave her an appreciation for classical ballet as well as an openness to perform all types of dances and share them with communities. It is with this spirit, that after a successful international career in the travel industry, Rosanna returns to teach dance and dance improvisation for her community in Miami. Her goal is to enrich our lives through dance. Rosanna was most recently seen dancing with the Miami Amateur Ballet at the Coral Gables Museum. She is a certified Pilates Mat Teacher.
