Emily was born and raised on an island called Cape Cod located in Massachusetts. Emily danced at a small local studio called The Academy of Performing Arts from the age of 10 until graduating high school.
After high school, Emily attended the University of New Hampshire and got her Bachelor's of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders with minors in Dance of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
During her undergraduate years, Emily continued to dance and had the opportunity to study many styles of dance including ballet, tap, jazz,modern, hip hop, contemporary, and aerial. Emily served as a teacher's assistant for tap and jazz classes for beginner college dancers. She began teaching dance during her sophomore year, teaching ballet, tap, hip hop, and some contemporary.
Emily graduated with her B.S. in May of 2020. She has spent the last year and a half teaching at a residential home/school for individuals with disabilities and behavioral challenges (very different from teaching dance). Now, as she starts her journey into graduate school at Gallaudet University in D.C studying Deaf Education, she is excited to get back into dance and is looking forward to exploring a new part of the country.
