About KatieRose M.

KatieRose McLaughlin is a NYC-based choreographer originally from Minneapolis, MN. Trained in ballet under the direction of ABT ballerina Bonnie Mathis, she attended the Joffrey/New School BFA program on full scholarship prior to kicking off her love affair with theater by training at a renowned clown school in Switzerland. She has performed with the Tony-Award winning Theatre de la Jeune Lune and as Esmeralda in several iterations of Redmoon Theater’s “Hunchback” including runs in Washington D.C. and at the New Victory Theater in NY (where it received a NYTimes Critics’ Pick).

KatieRose is the Associate Choreographer for the Tony award-winning Broadway musical HADESTOWN.

Notable credits from her wide-ranging choreographic career in theater include BEAR SLAYER (Ars Nova), THE BLACK CROOK (Abrons Arts Center), THE SPACE BETWEEN THE LETTERS (Under the Radar’s INCOMING!), BUMP (EST), PARADE (Yale Dramat), SEAGULLMACHINE (LaMama), PROMENADE (Barnard College), and TRAGEDY IN SPADES (University Settlement). She has choreographed for opera, film, and music videos (including Jean Rohe’s Live, which she also directed).

In 2013, she co-founded and became the artistic director of Designated Movement Co., a dance/theater company interested in blurring the lines between forms. As a creator, she has been an artist-in-residence with Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Process Space (2017) to further develop CLARA NOT CLARA, DMC’s contemporary and totally new take on The Nutcracker, which was also developed in 2014 at The Knockdown Center in Queens in a production that featured Kaitlyn Gilliland and the legendary Valda Setterfield. Other residencies include the Upstream Residency at Kaatsbaan International Dance Center (2017), Broadway Dance Lab (2017), Barn Arts Collective (in 2015 & 2016) and LMCC’s SPARC program (2013).

I'm an absolute beginner dancer and KatieRose has been a fabulous instructor for me. She's patient, fun, exacting, motivating, and she has the most gorgeous arms ever! She was choreographer on a show I did and I've made sure to stay in touch. She's also a fabulous human and a joy to be around. Highly recommended.

I have worked with Katie Rose on several theatrical projects, where she has been tasked with teaching dances to beginning and intermediate dancers, and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Katie Rose's teaching style is patient and fun, and she creates dances that look and feel great for any individual. She has rigorous training, and is deeply perceptive, creating an atmosphere where we all worked hard together with great results.

Katie Rose is the best! I’ve taken adult beginner ballet class and theater jazz from her as well. As someone who picks things up a little slowly, I’ve found her to be incredibly encouraging and patient and always fun to work with. She also makes great choreography for me, building dances that tailor-made to suit me and my strengths. I always have a blast in her class and I can’t recommend her enough!
