Rosenblit has been making performance in New York City since 2005. She is a 2015-16 Movement Research artist-in-residence, and a recipient of a 2014 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for Emerging Choreographer. In 2013, Rosenblit was a fellow at Insel Hombroich (Germany). Rosenblit has received commissions from The Kitchen (a Natural dance, 2014, Bessie Award), New York Live Arts (In Mouth, 2012), Danspace Project (When Them, 2010), and Issue Project Room (Pastor Pasture, 2013).

Rosenblit’s new work, Clap Hands is supported by residencies at Tanzhaus (Zurich); The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (Atlanta, GA); and the Chinati Foundation (Marfa, TX), and is a part of MoMA PS1’s exhibition Greater New York. The work will premiere in late April at The Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn, NY, co-presented with New York Live Arts. Rosenblit is also currently making Swivel Spot, a companion solo for Clap Hands to premiere in winter, 2017 at The Kitchen in NYC.
