Her resume as a director and choreographer traverses stage, television, and film. Her credits include commercials for Paul Mitchell, Red Bull, Yahoo!, Torchwood (STARZ), and That’s Life (CBS). Her film credits include Bulletproof Monk, Get Ur Ballet On, and OMG she's a REAL Ballerina. Josie has been commissioned to create contemporary ballet pieces for Gala De Danza, Ballet West, YAGP Gala, Festival Ballet Theatre, State Street Ballet, and Aeolian Ballet, to name a few.
