Rosie Schwartz ARAD has had a lifelong appreciation of movement. Rosie trained in classical ballet from the age of 4 into adulthood, completing all examinations through the Royal Academy of Dance, as well as being involved recreationally in many sports.

Moving into the fitness industry was a natural progression. Rosie started Vocational Tertiary Education at Meadowbank TAFE in 2006 where she studied a Cert 3 in Fitness, a Cert 4 in Personal Training and a Diploma of Athlete Support Services. Alongside this, Rosie started her ballet teaching career and began working at Resolution Fitness, a commercial gym where she was contracted as a Personal Trainer for 6 years.

From the outset of her studies Rosie felt a calling to provide strength and conditioning services specifically designed for dancers. Over the following years Rosie gained qualifications and experience relevant to her vision and by 2010 had begun working with dancers in this capacity. In 2014, Rosie registered her strength and conditioning business ‘Dance Athlete’. Today, Dance Athlete clients include some of Sydney’s top ballet training institutes and dancers in elite levels of training.

Rosie’s great appreciation of Pilates continues to blossom and grow. Rosie considers her choice to study with Polestar Pilates in 2013, one of her best decisions. Pilates principles align perfectly with Rosie’s movement background and holistic training philosophy. Pilates is an invaluable study for dancers and for people in any walk of life.

Today Rosie continues to provide strength and conditioning services for dancers, RAD ballet teaching and Pilates mat instructing. Rosie is currently studying a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science part time at ACU.
