Emily was introduced to contemporary dance through The Place’s Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) programme before studying at the London Contemporary Dance School graduating with a First Class BA (Hons) in 2021.
During her training she worked with artists and choreographers such as Igor x Moreno, Yukiko Masui (SAY Dance), Jamaal Burkmar (Extended Play Dance), Richard Alston Dance Company, Leila McMillan and Valerie Ebuwa. She was also involved in a devised collaboration with Leonardo Da Vinci: A Life in Drawing, where she performed at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace.
She continued her dancing with Stopgap Dance Company as a Professional Placement Scheme student, gaining an MA from Northern School of Contemporary Dance in 2022. Here she had the opportunity to collaborate with company dancer Nadenh Poan, performing in his work REFLECTIONS, as well as being a presenter in the digital series Dance For Kids with IRIS. After she completed her placement, she was offered the role of Access Worker/Understudy and performed and toured with Frock.
She is interested in combining Flying Low and inclusive methods into her dance practice, and had the opportunity to go to Brussels in 2020 to learn from David Zambrano. She has also worked with artists including Jo Fong, Raquel Meseguer and Sophie Nüzel.
Emily joined as a company member in November 2022 for their new indoor production.
