Mattea Rossettie grew up surrounded by local theater and dance in Corning, NY, where she developed an avid appreciation and passion for the arts. She danced, performed, choreographed, and eventually began teaching at her hometown studio 171 Cedar Arts Center, until she moved to Lewisburg, PA to earn her Bachelor of Arts degree. She continued to dance, choreograph, and participate in theater at Bucknell University, where she was involved in twenty-six productions across four years, and pursued a dance minor alongside her Animal Behavior and Comparative Humanities majors.
Mattea returned to NY in 2014 to teach dance before moving to Atlanta for a position at Georgia State University’s Language Research Center, where she currently works as a Research Coordinator. Seeking to incorporate the arts into her daily routine, Mattea volunteers as a Fox Theatre usher and enjoys being a part of the Dance 411 family – a wonderful community of creative, passionate, and talented people. Here at Dance 411, she loves her work as a member of the sales team, revels in substitute teaching for the youth dance program, and enjoys taking classes alongside the rest of the studio’s dance family. Additionally, Mattea is excited to dedicate her skills and time to the promotion and celebration of dance, and to support those underserved in the arts community by serving as a committee member for the newly organized non-profit, Mission 4 Movement.
