She hopes to bring her own style and share her passion for dance with everyone.
Rose began dancing at the age of seven learning ballet, tap, and gymnastics. In her early 20's she discovered Hip Hop and it has been her true love ever since. She has danced in two Vermont companies (The Vermont Elements and the Flynn Dance Troupe) and has trained with numerous choreographers from New York, Montreal, Atlanta, and Los Angeles areas. She currently is employed as an After School Programs Coordinator at St. Albans Town Educational Center. She was the 5 year coach of the Champlain College Dance team and for the past 7 years the Varsity and JV coach for the Mt. Mansfield Union H.S. Dance Team. Here, Bedard was named Coach of the Year in 2011 and mostly recently her team won the State Championship in Hip Hop and Overall Dance! She also is most proud of her own creation "2Inspire Dance Company" that is ran through SATEC's after school program. She has also had the pleasure of teaching at several local VT dance studios, choreographing for Rice Memorial H.S. stunt night, and teaching dance to cancer survivors. This will be Rose's second year at EYDC and she is looking to bring the action with her Hip Hop Groups, Recreational Classes, and the Mini Production Crew! Rose is known for her never ending energy, enthusiasm, love for teaching her passion and zest for life!! She relates best to these two quotes.
