Hi! I'm a dance, circus, and fitness professional. I have spent my entire life in the dance world, training vigorously in several different ballet institutions. After graduating with a major in ballet from the Walnut Hill School of the Arts in Massachusetts, I received my BFA in dance from the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music, where I began to find an interest in fitness and earned my Pilates teacher certification. I later earned my personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and worked as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. In addition to finding a passion for fitness, I was drawn to the circus world and began training contortion and aerial arts.

I currently work as a company dancer with Ballet Florida, a contemporary company, and perform as a contortionist locally and internationally. I teach modern, ballet, pointe, and contemporary dance classes and train groups and individuals for flexibility and strength training.

For flexibility training, I focus on both static and active flexibility to effectively improve range of motion (not just sitting in a stretch for several minutes at a time). Contortion lessons also available for students who have reached a good foundation in flexibility and strength.

One of the best teachers I’ve ever had! Emily really breaks everything down in an easy to understand manner, and I am seeing a lot of progress in a short amount of time!

Ms. Emily has been helping my daughter improve her flexibility and ballet techniques. She is patient with my daughter and very knowledgeable in her craft. This has made our weekly classes enjoyable, And my daughter always looks forward to our weekly meetings. I highly recommend Miss Emily for anyone looking to improve their dance flexibility, and ballet techniques.
