Ruth works as a freelance performer and choreographer and is based in London. She graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with a degree in Musical Theatre. 

Ruth is Choreographer for the Rooftop Trio, using choreographic influences from the artists and time in which they are set. 

Recently, Ruth was choreographer for Upstage Skills week in Alicante, Spain in connection with the NYMT.

Ruth recently performed at the Waterloo East Theatre, London, as part of the Rooftop Trio and as a solo artist. ​The Trio also performed at Up The Creek, Comedy Club in Greenwich, London as part of A Chorus Wine evening. 

In December 2016, Ruth performed in a dancing trio for a New Years Eve Party for Rubix Dance Productions. This involved dancing in the 1920's Charleston genre. 

In July 2015, ruth performed at the Royal Albert Hall ​as part of the BBC PROMS in a piece entitled Connect It , a body percussive piece created by Anna Meredith. 

After graduating Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with a first class degree in Musical Theatre Becky chose to avoid adult life by 'running away with the circus.'

 

She spent a grueling four months training in Circus Art with 'Aircraft Circus' here she found a love for Cabaret. She has developed trapeze and ground based Cabaret acts with the help and guidance of 'Chris Alys Circus' and performed at various cabaret venues. Becky is also producer of 'Kweer Kabaret' along with friend and college 'Ophelia Love' which has been performed at the Waterloo East Theatre.

 

She also produced and helped to create musical play 'Spectrum' which was part of Camden Fringe 2016. Alongside cabaret Becky works as an actor and performing arts teacher. Her credits include 'Once upon a time there were four little rabbits...,' 'Spectrum,' 'News Revue' and adult panto 'Alladin-me.'

 

Aside from performing Becky is a typical northern lass who likes nothing better than a pie and a pint with mates in the sun (which she sees a lot more of since relocating to London.) Becky loves being part of the Rooftop Trio as it combines her love of performing, music and costume and she gets to do it with the girls!

Ros began singing in choirs and informal performances during her school years, developing her love for musical theatre whilst training at the Stretton School of Dance and Drama where she met Ruth Seager at the age of twelve.

 

The two of them became close friends and collaborators, working on countless self-initiated dance projects together across the years and achieving their grades in dance and drama alongside each other.

 

Between 2011 and 2015, during her degree in French and Italian at the University of Edinburgh, Ros performed leading roles in ten large scale musical productions, including Maureen in Rent, Janet in The Drowsy Chaperone, Cassie in A Chorus Line, and Rona Peretti in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

 

Since living in London and working as a motivation speaker for students, Ros has continued to perform: at the Arts Theatre with Beach Comet’s critically acclaimed productions Apocalypse Cruise Ship Love Affair and Vampire Hospital Waiting Room, and now with the Rooftop Trio.
