Mitchell Rose


MITCHELL ROSE (Filmmaker) is a frequent collaborator with BodyVox—they have now created 12 films together. But prior to becoming a filmmaker, Mitchell was a New York-based choreographer specializing in comedic work and was dubbed “the dance world’s Woody Allen” by The New York Times. Eventually he was drawn more to visual media and disbanded his company to become a Directing Fellow at the American Film Institute. Now a professor of dance-filmmaking at Ohio State University, his films have won 77 awards in film festivals. A BodyVox collaboration Modern Daydreams, which has played in venues as diverse as the Getty Museum and the CBS JumboVision in Times Square, won the American Choreography Award (the Hollywood award for filmed choreography). And another collaboration Learn to Speak Body has been viewed three million times on YouTube. His films can be watched at:
