Today we’d like to introduce you to Rosa Agius.
Rosa, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Sydney born and raised, came from an immigrant Mediterranean Family who couldn’t afford dance lessons. But I was always a mover.. lol.
So I started off as a freestyle dancer. I joined my first hip hop crew, and since then have said yes to every opportunity since. Life has just unravelled since then.
Opportunity took me from small club gigs and battles to big stages and music videos, I started dancing and choreographing for Australian artiste as well as visiting international artists. I started teaching at the leading schools in Sydney and then traveling interstate, New Zealand and Asia gigging and teaching workshops.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to choreograph for the X factor and So you think you can dance.
I then started also moving into the corporate world, Choreographing and producing major events for some of the worlds leading corporations.
I moved to La in search of a new challenge, I’m now bi-coastal, travelling back to Oz to choreograph and teach, and share my time in the US travelling and working between LA and Las Vegas
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No not really.. lol
1. Coming from a freestyle hip hop background I had to work and train really hard to play catch up and make it professionally in the commercial dance scene. I had a lot to prove and am extremely grateful to the people who saw something in me and me nurture it.
In my late 20’s I put my move to LA on hold for three years weeny father fell ill. I moved home to look after him and then stayed to look after my mum after his passing. so when I made the move to LA at 30 I struggled with the age bracket in the commercial world. But I found my Niche and I love it.
Six years ago I was also told that I needed a double-disc fusion, but if I agreed I would dance professionally again… I couldn’t imagine a life without it, so I denied. I just had to train my mental, emotional and physical fitness extra hard to counter the injury. It was a two-year struggle and something I need to work on every day.
We’d love to hear more about your work.
I specialize in producing and choreographing events. Working with clients, artists and night clubs to design entertainment from the ground up. From concept, costume, music, choreography and talent booking…. I love it…
And the best part is…. I’m also still a dancer, I love working for other company’s and choreographers as an artist. It’s the best of both worlds, and they seem to never clash and just have a synergy… I am very fortunate.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I have never had what people call good luck… lol
I have had three cars stolen, countless phones and wallets were stolen just for an example. hahaha
I think accepting opportunity bravely and having a good work ethic and energy has played a much bigger part.
