Rose Kirshner started dancing at Berkeley Ballet Theater at age four, and she continues to dance in the Bay Area. She studied ballet and modern dance through high school and college. Rose graduated magna cum laude from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle with a BFA in Dance. Since returning to the Bay Area she has performed with Hanna Rose Stangebye, Catherine Liu, Blue Scorpion Dance Theater, and No Strings Attached Dance Company. In addition to dancing, Rose also worked as a pointe shoe fitter at San Francisco Dancewear for four years. When she learned that San Francisco Dancewear was closing its doors, Rose started making plans to open a new dance store. SF Dance Gear is the result. Rose is happy to be sharing her passion for dance with the Bay Area dance community.
