Emily is a dancer and choreographer working across dance, theatre, film and photography.
Originally from the Midlands, Emily trained in Contemporary Dance at Bretton Hall College of Arts, graduating in 2001, and is now based in Cornwall. She has toured extensively as a dancer across the UK for over 15 years, including Northern Ireland and the Spoleto Festival U.S.A.
Emily’s performance work has taken her from Battersea Arts Centre, and the Asylum with Kneehigh, to village halls, clubs, gardens, city centres, and beaches. Her newest venture is dancing with Simon Birch Dance Company in Shoreline, a magical dance and choral event set right on the edge of the sea.
Her choreographic work taps into a hub of artists including Brett Harvey and Steve Tanner. Her dance for camera work has toured to Budapest and Russia as part of the ArtKino Film Festival. Emily is an Associate Artist of Hall for Cornwall, Co-Artistic Director of Freefall Dance, and a Lecturer of Dance at Falmouth University since 2010.
She has delivered outreach work, technique classes and project based work for numerous companies, organisations and Universities including Hall for Cornwall, Dance Republic 2, Plymouth Dance, Theatre Royal Plymouth (DR2), Cscape and Kneehigh.
Emily has recently been awarded funding from Arts Council England, Hall for Cornwall and British Council through the Artist’s International Development Fund and Grants for the Arts to travel to Norway and Belgium, Birmingham, Nottingham and London in the UK for a 10 week Professional Development Project starting in March 2017.
