Rosalind Wirsing grew up in London, England and knew from an early age that her life path would embrace classical ballet and animals. Her ballet teachers were retired members of Serge Diaghilev's Ballet Russes. Following her graduation from the Professional Program of the original Rambert School of Ballet, she was a professional classical ballet dancer in Europe, performing in the "big" ballets including Swan Lake and Coppelia, as well as in lesser known ballets. Her teaching career began in England and continued in Europe. In California, she received her B.A. in English Literature; and in Colorado, she received her D.V.M. degree. Moving to North Carolina enabled Rosalind to tread her chosen life path. In her teaching of classical ballet, she can pass on her knowledge and love of ballet and, as a veterinarian, she is able to care for companion pets. Teaching for Expressions of Worship brings added joy for, as her students understand, all gifts come from God and, through dance, they bear witness to His generosity and kindness.
