Rose was born in New York City and raised in Brooklyn where he displayed an interest in the arts during his childhood. His mother was his main inspiration as she herself had been a dancer for the Copacabana during the 1940s and 1950s. In 1970, when Rose was 16 years old, he won a scholarship to study dance with the Ballet de Puerto Rico under the guidance of Pascual Guzman. He participated in a dance-drama recital of Julia de Burgos at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts with the Ballet Company. The New York Post called his performance “Poignant and Compelling”.

Rose and Village People have raised millions of dollars for many charities. Among them are the Native American College Fund and various AIDS charities. Rose is a member of the Board of Directors of Sixuvus Ltd., the Advisory Board of the Native American Music Association, the LARAS-Latin Grammys, and the Winter Music Conference.

In 2006, Rose appeared as a contestant on the revival of I’ve Got a Secret. He currently lives in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
