Walsh founded MYOKYO Renegade Rock Ballets in 2000. She is the director, choreographer and producer for the company, creating an eclectic style of inter-disciplinary cooperation. Her company utilizes aerial ballets and acrobatics: circus and martial artistry, contemporary and classical ballet, modern, burlesque, tango, live rock and opera blends. MYOKYO dancers go from bare feet to pointe shoes to high-flying aerial stunts in the rafters.

As an artist and teacher, Josie’s primary goal is to invoke, inspire and create a truly visceral experience. “Dance represents the deepest freedom of expression in that it leaves nothing to hide behind…nothing to obscure the naked truth that as the dancer you are the art.” - Josie Walsh

Josie was named “25 to watch” by Dance Magazine.
