Teacher Feature-Owner-Miss Emily

How old were you when you started dancing?

  • My parents put me in dance when I was three, and I never stopped!

What inspires you about dance?

  • I love that dancing can take you anywhere. It is always an experience. I love that no matter how I'm feeling when I get to the studio, I always feel better after a night of dance. Dance is a way you can convey your emotions and tell a story that can be universally understood, and I love the way dance makes me feel!

What do you love about teaching dance?

  • I love sharing my love of dance with others. It's very rewarding to watch my dancers grow and develop in dance as well as personally over the years. Dance teaches us so many wonderful lessons: discipline, a hard work ethic, team work, poise, self confidence. I love being able to help instill these qualities in my dancers.

Why do you love Starstruck?

  • I love watching the dancers grow and learn. I love watching the relationships grow between dancers and teachers. I love watching the lightbulbs go on and the joy in the dancers' faces. It's very rewarding to know that we are helping change lives, and I feel very lucky to be doing what I'm doing.
