Rose-Mary “Rosie” Harbans is a Caribbean-Canadian multifaceted performer from Toronto, Ontario. From a young age, her Caribbean heritage infused her with a passion for vibrancy, rhythm, and storytelling. Her compelling stage presence and natural ability to capture an audience has propelled her into a dynamic career.

Rosie completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Ryerson University, where she had the privilege of working with distinguished choreographers such as Vicki St. Denys, Louis Laberge-Côté, Kate Hilliard, Robert Glumbeck, William Yong, and Alejandro Cerrudo (Hubbard Street Dance Chicago).

Rosie has forged her own path in Toronto’s Commercial dance industry, forming connections with renowned local dance artists including Cora Kozaris (CARNÉ), Shameka Blake (Ashes), and Caroline Torti. She was also featured in the film “A Revolution of Love”, choreographed by Esie Mensah and directed by Weyni Mengesha (Soulpepper/ City of Toronto).

There, she toured Asia and Alaska performing in some of their most notable productions including Le Cirque Bijou (Jenn Rapp) and the Tony Award Winning Musical After Midnight (Warren Carlyle) as a principal dancer, vocalist and aerialist. Her tenacity for creating new work was recognized when she was brought on as an apprentice by Vicki St. Denys to develop a multidisciplinary performance that toured various Greek islands.

Her passion for culture has inspired her to immerse herself in a myriad of styles including Samba, Afro-Caribbean, and House. She is an active company member of Dance Migration (Adrianna Yanuziello), where she has had the opportunity to work closely with Brazilian Samba masters.
