Miss Emily began her journey of dance training and practice in Fort McMurray, AB, at the young age of two years old. Developing her ballet, jazz, and contemporary technique, she had the privilege of attending the EDGE Academy and performed at the World Symposium 2012 as a part of Team Canada. Arriving in Calgary, she continued to develop her ballet and contemporary technique, achieving Distinction in her Standard 6 Cecchetti exam and has been working towards her BFA degree in Dance at the University of Calgary, with an emphasis on choreography.
Throughout her university career, she has created choreography for the CBE, the IGNITE! Festival, the University of Calgary, Arts Commons, and Springboard Festival's Physical Therapy Cabaret. She has also performed and worked as a company member with W&M Physical Theatre, Corps Bara Dance Theatre, Ember Dance Company, and Trip the Light Dance Company. Her pedagogy is rooted in cultivating each dancer's personal artistic expression through collaboration, exploration, and discovery through play. Miss Emily is so proud and honoured to become a part of the Soul Connexion community!
