Having begun her dance journey at age 4, Emily has gone on to graduate from the University of Chester with a First-Class degree (with honours) in Dance. She has performed and worked on a number of different community projects and performances including; Cheshire Dance – Lion Salt Works (2014), Restoke – Expedition (2014), Cabasa Carnival Arts – Tatton Flower Show (2015), Manchester Pride Parade (2015), GB Heroes Parade (2016), and most recently performances with FRONTLINEdance’s Breakthrou’aDvANCE group.
Since graduating, Emily has also worked on a number of dance film projects, aimed at promoting different community groups and bringing their work to a larger audience.
Emily became involved with FRONTLINEdance by becoming a member of Breakthrou’dance in 2017, and has loved dancing with them ever since! She now delivers a number of ‘Moving Together’ workshops and leads the Breakthrou’ Youth Group every Thursday. Emily also continues to develop her practice by shadowing and assisting other community groups with FRONTLINEdance. She is also a volunteer member of the Friends of FRONTLINEdance group.
Emily is excited to have the opportunity to work on the Dance Hub project. She is most looking forward to working with a new group of experienced dancers and to being part of the process to develop and create a new and innovative piece. She is also excited to capture this journey through photograph and film
This is also why Emily was eager to apply, she wanted to bring her existing skills to face new challenges and work with FRONTLINEdance in a new way
Outside of dance, Emily is an avid book reader, cat lover and scarf collector
