Rosemary Robenn is passionate about teaching ballet, and sharing what she has learnt in her almost 50 years of teaching experience. Rosemary began teaching when training with BBO (British Ballet Organisation) examiner Pamela Shield in Sydney after leaving school. In 1970, she joined the Queensland Ballet Company for a schools' tour of Coppélia, which is where she met her husband, New Zealand dancer Waynne Robenn. She has operated her own ballet schools in New South Wales and Tasmania, choreographing and producing several full-length ballets. In 1986 she gained her RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) teaching certificate during the years she taught for RAD examiner Prudence Bowen. In 2003-2004, Rosemary was invited to teach at the Kondo Ballet Studio in Japan, an amazing experience for her. She has been back several times since living in Japan, to guest teach. Rosemary held the position of Senior Teacher at Elancé Adult Ballet School in Melbourne for 12 years. For the past few years she has been working as a freelance teacher, instructing adults and children. As part of her philosophy that the joy of ballet should be available to everyone, Rosemary has also developed an innovative program for blind students and has found working with these students an inspiration. She is loving her work with adult students at CAE, as she continues to develop innovative ways to teach adult beginners.
