"A Rose by any other name than Harden would not be as sweet. I don’t know many other dancers I can describe as solid and tough while soft and feminine at the same time. Rose just has that rock-solid old-school foundation of craft while still being able to emote ever changing and emerging styles. I wish I knew her secret – she is a true pioneer"
- Surreyya, The Gilded Serpent
