A native of Vermont, Rousse choreographs, performs, teaches, curates, writes, and advocates for dance. She co-founded JAMES SEWELL BALLET in New York City in 1990. Her work as a choreographer, supported by the National Endowment for Arts, the McKnight Foundation and the Jerome Foundation, among others, has been seen in both theatrical and commercial venues such as the Guthrie, Southern, and State Theaters; the Walker Art Center, MASS MoCA, the Cartoon Channel, and Harvard’s American Repertory Theatre.
Before co-founding JSB, Rousse performed as a leading dancer with the Royal Ballet of Flanders and Ballet Chicago. In addition to performing many roles in the classical and Balanchine repertoires, Rousse has also danced works by Maurice Béjart, Jiri Kylian, and over 75 new works created for her by contemporary and post-modern choreographers. She is currently a Guest Artist with JSB and appears with several other dance entities in the Twin Cities and New York.
