Claudia Rosales graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Performance from the University of Maryland in 2013 and had been working as a teaching artist in DC and NYC. Her work helps students cultivate their distinct and personal voices both as artists and people. As a member of Izumi Ashizawa Performance she achieved the Director's Choice award in the 2011 D.C. Fringe Festival, performed at the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage and toured throughout Peru July 2012. She studies historical movement and sword play with master fight director Brad Waller and assisted him at the Nordic Fight Conference in Sweden in July 2013.
