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 and is now based in Cornwall. She has toured extensively as a dancer across the UK for over 15 years.

Emily’s performance work has taken her from Battersea Arts Centre, the Spoleto Festival U.S.A. and the Asylum with Kneehigh, to village halls, clubs, gardens, city centres, and beaches. Her newest ventures are dancing with Simon Birch Dance Company in Shoreline, Rosemary Lee’s Passage for Par and  WildWorks 100: UnEarth at Heligan Gardens.

Her choreographic work taps into a hub of artists including Brett Harvey and Steve Tanner. Her dance for camera work has toured to Budapest, Russia, Argentina and California. 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.

Emily is hugely thankful for the support and funding recently awarded from Arts Council England, Hall for Cornwall and British Council to travel to Norway and Belgium, Nottingham and London for a Professional Development Project and Dancers Career Development for ongoing support.
