When Emma was 11 years old, she took a Hip Hop/Lyrical class and discovered… She Is A Dancer! She started at Studio R Ballet at 12 years old excited to learn and dance her heart out! Emma has taken every opportunity to further her dance training and skill. She is always looking for and attending extra classes and workshops… including classes with Dusty Button (principal ballerina Boston Ballet), Michael Kubala (Broadway dancer/performer) and Olga Tarasova (YAGP 2017 Arizona teacher of the year.) The summer of 2018, she attended the intensive at the Academy of Ballet Arts in California. The summer of 2019, she attended intensives at both Ballet West and Brigham Young University. Emma has danced many leading roles at SRB including Snow Queen, Court Fairy, Dew Drop, Marzipan and Arabian. She has represented SRB in the Youth America Grand Prix for three years and danced with the level VI ensemble in the New York finals in the spring of 2019. Emma dabbles in performing on the Aerial Silk and is learning to work with a Lyra hoop.
Emma also loves teaching dance! For two years she has taught multiple classes in her own home studio. She really enjoys coaching in SRB’s Tops Training program. Emma is very happy to be continuing her own training at Studio R Ballet!
