Pia Douwes: "Rosite and I have known each other for many years and have been able to follow each others careers closely. She is attentive to detail, cheerful, perceptive, perfectionistic, passionate, modest, always present at the right moment, she brings the perfect sense of Dutch humour for tense moments. You can feel the passion she has for her craft and how she loves to talk about her profession."

Anthony van Laast, international choreographer (Mamma Mia!, Sister Act and Bombay Dreams): "Rosite is a great rehearsal pianist, she understands how a choreographer thinks and is able to transfer his every creative thought into music. She is an inspiration to work with."
